Moreover, 60 acres is all you need for a mid-sized high school campus—or a mid to small-sized neighborhood.
Fair enough as far as the bolded. I misunderstood your post.

I'm going to venture a guess that the Olympic tennis facility fell into disuse partly as a result of not being located closer to a higher concentration of residents who would have been more likely to use it.

Improve, according to Gwinnett County property records, bought the land last summer for just over $6 million, and newly revealed renderings and an update to the site’s Loopnet profile show the project has only grown larger—and that retail space is now up for grabs.

Flaunting 418,000 square feet, Improve’s first American mall is slated to sit right alongside Interstate 85, just north of Pleasantdale Road and not far from an existing furniture row mecca in Norcross.

Looks Dunwoody is continuing to jump on the pedestrian friendly bandwagon.

Quote:
The owner of property near Perimeter Mall where two major restaurants recently closed is proposing to “redevelop and revitalize” it into retail center with a new anchor grocery store and possibly a hotel, according to documents on file with the city of Dunwoody. Plans also include filling in a pond that is popular with migrating Canada geese to build a parking lot for new retail buildings.

***

The city’s vision for Perimeter Center includes more pedestrian-friendly and bike-friendly developments that include buildings close to the street, [Community Development Director Richard] McLeod added.

All that surface parking isn't going to help make it walkable and bicycle friendly.

Almost all of the retail is street-adjacent with the parking entrances at either end. That's not walkable and bicycle friendly?

It's going to encourage more driving because of the availability of free, easy parking.
