Topshop would create some great buzz. Old Navy, not so much lol. I realize that's a practical store, but you can get your ON fix in Atlantic Station. Marc by Marc Jacobs would be amazing, but there's a location in Savannah and I don't picture Mr.Jacobs blessing our state with two of those stores .

What specifically is the "myth" that article is talking about?

Also this quote:

We don’t foresee any new skyscrapers (vertical development) breaking ground for at least five years.
Really? 2016? GMAB.

I know the economy is bad right now, but many of the highrises in Midtown and ON PEACHTREE (not in Atlantic Station, not on Ivan Allen in downtown, not on Peachtree in South Buckhead) are actually doing fine--they are filling slowly, but steadily. Many are approaching 50% occupancy or more despite opening in 2007 and beyond.

I'll grant that a major construction start in the next 12-18 months is unlikely, but there will probably very little in the way of unsold units by the end of that timeframe, and there will once again be appreciation and demand for more new residential condos. We aren't going to see any more major projects in subpar locations, which was the hallmark of the 2000's RE boom; those are the projects that have really been thrashed.

Actually, I would like to see something more affordable than Houstons in at Colony Square. I would like to have a place that would be open on weekends, where nearby residents could become regulars, and visitors to the arts center would have an alternative to pricey nearby spots. Maybe a diner.

I always thought a Macaroni Grill would be great in-town.

A neighborhood diner would be great here. Maybe if Goldberg's moved from inside the mall to this outside space they could have enough visibility to resume weekend hours. We lived near here for a few years and were really disappointed when Goldberg's started closing on the weekends (they have a great breakfast menu).

I think that's far too prominent a site across from the city's cultural heart for a down market chain. Something local, creative, and mid priced would be better there.
