Bridges Getting Beautified, MARTA, More!

Downtown Connector

DOWNTOWN—If all goes as planned, two bridges across Atlanta's Downtown Connector will be more eye grabbing by March 2015. The $5.35 M downtown beautification project for Peachtree Street is the first phase of a project that may lead to three other bridges.

DOWNTOWN— The SkyView ferris wheel, which features 42 enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas that can fit around 6 people each, has set an opening date for Tuesday, July 16, at noon. The project was met with some outrage by Curbed commenters, but according to a spokesman, "people recognize what a special venue this is going to be."

GRANT PARK— A tipster has alerted Curbed Atlanta of the impending demolition of the old Atlanta Dairies building, a 10 acre complex that seriously flirted with destruction a few years ago.

BUCKHEAD— The Lenox Square shopping complex is now showing off a new rendering for an upcoming facelift. There will also be 375 residential units added to the complex, but details on that are forthcoming.

INMAN PARK— Times are a-changin' — and rapidly. Visible site work should commence any day at the mixed-use project currently known as "280 Elizabeth Street."

BELTLINE— The Eastside Trail's unofficial mascot — a pensive, midnight-black feral cat named Beltline Piper— has fired off more than 1,000 Tweets recently. Construction will soon bring 227 residential units to the area near his home, but for now it looks like his habitat (and fan base) are preserved.
