I wonder when will the first phase begin?

Aerotropolis
Streets of Buckhead
College Football HOF Museum
Atlanta Civil & Human Rights Museum
Legoland
National Health Museum


I wonder if the developer for the proposed Largest Ski Resort in the world near Lake Lanier will work with Deal to get additional tax breaks for his project?

Aerotropolis - Searching for tenants. First phase may very well be the construction of huge overflow parking decks for the new International Terminal. Presently in talks with Porsche North America for their HQ's to move there from Dunwoody, along with a new training center.

Streets of Buckhead - Not sure, but I keep hearing that Ben Carter is close to a deal with private equity financing since the banks are still on lockdown.

College Football HOF - Still deciding on a particular site, and in the fundraising mode.

Civil & Human Rights Museum - Pushed back a year to complete fundraising. I believe they are at around 65% or so.

Legoland - No clue.

National Health Museum - Haven't heard anything in several months.

Aerotropolis should build some movie studios on that site. That area would be perfect since it's near the airport

I think the next development is the Old Fourth Ward area, with the new park and City Hall East development. Its also the first major project of the Beltline area.

Now there is talk about building a ferris wheel, as discussed in this thread: AJC: Sightseeing Ferris wheel for Atlanta?.

What I love about Atlanta is that there is always constant development going on, and every time I go back to visit there is something new that wasn't there before, whether its a new building, new park, new museum, Atlantic Station, the Aquarium, etc. The city may have taken a hit during the recession, but it didn't seem to set the city back too much. Now its back on its momentum. I'll really be looking forward to the Beltline being completed.

So true, on all points.

The Beltline is going to be transformative in ways that are hard to imagine. You will not believe how beautiful the new Old Fourth Ward park turned out. It should be opening very soon, now.

Hope Tokyo is treating you well!

I think you're dead on here. With the streetcar, the Beltline, the new O4W park and skate park all in development, this neighborhood is a real center of positive change in the city. My guess is that, in five to ten years, many parts of O4W will be barely recognizable from what existed there in recent decades.

O4W today is already a far cry from what it was 10-15 years ago. And I agree that it will continue to be one of the most exciting and urban parts of the city.

Wow! Is there an expectation as to what market Aerotropolis will be targeting? Their flyer refers to demographics within in a 10 mile radius, but I'm assuming they'll go after the whole metro area as well as out of town visitors. It'll be cool if they can draw the "North-of-20" crowd to Hapeville, as it is somewhat outside their traditional stomping ground for shopping.

Aerotropolis will be next to the new international terminal. They are going to have a bus that will pick up people at the new terminal and bring them to Aerotropolis to shop and eat while they are waiting on their flight. Over 4.4 million people board international flights each year so...

They probably will also market to the people in South Atlanta who do not want to drive to Atlantic Station. The new movie studio at Lakewood is not far away.
