I seriously doubt you'd get a grocery store and a hotel to move in without plenty of convenient parking.

Publix at AS doesn't have surface parking lot. Several hotels downtown don't have parking garaior lots attached.

Well, that's true. The Publix in north Buckhead doesn't have a surface lot, nor does the one in Sandy Springs that is closing down.

However, it's mighty hard to get grocery stores to go along with that.

They'll fight tooth and nail to get surface parking, and they have a point. The grocery business is ultra competitive and profit margins are extremely tight. Unless they are in a very high density area like Buckhead or Atlantic Station, they say they can't generate the volume they need without easy parking. Even the Buckhead store is built inside a parking garage and Atlantic Station is built on top of one. Also consider the situation at Emory Pointe.

Didn't I just read a post about the Publix at the Prado shutting down and the lack of parking being one of the reasons it wasn't a profitable store?

LINC officially opens

LINC officially opens - The Newnan Times-Herald

Quote:
The first section of the proposed 25-mile multi-use LINC trail system is officially open.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Friday afternoon to signal the opening of the LINC.

City staff and supporters filled the path near ‘Cleatus Creek’ to officially declare the path open to the public.

The 1.9-mile connection will link Newnan Crossing Boulevard to the Nixon Centre, Newnan Crossing Elementary School, and the residential neighborhoods along Highwoods Parkway and Shenandoah Boulevard.

Mayor Keith Brady heralded the LINC project as a tremendous grassroots effort between the city and the public.

“It truly came from the community and this was one of those ideas that will live on,” Brady said. “Friends Of LINC is a huge reason why we’re here today.”

Jim Thomasson, Vice President for Friends Of LINC, said the project is a great example of the community working together to implement a quality of life initiative that will carry on for generations to come.

“It’s a reminder of when hard work intersects with a great idea, great things can happen,” Thomasson said. “This ribbon cutting is the proof of the power of a public-private partnership.”

A grand opening celebration – “Ready, Set, LINC” – is currently scheduled for May 4.

Hardly surprising.

Step aside Buckhead. North Fulton County is now the second office option in Atlanta.

The affluent suburb 25 miles north of Downtown Atlanta is drawing strong interest from companies seeking office space, putting it in contention with the market leader, Midtown.

[We've] got a handful of prospects that are not even looking at Buckhead, Hines Managing Director Alan Kennedy said during Bisnow's North Fulton event this week at Preston Ridge IV. "They're looking at Midtown or North Fulton."

North Fulton Could Now Be Midtown Atlanta's Biggest Office Rival

The NB Publix does have parking on the same level as the store entrance. It's within a larger parking deck, however.

I know multiple people that work in at PCM and do not drive.

The one I know best just walks or bikes down the Beltline from Midtown. Seems relaxing. I am quite jealous of their commute.

No one is claiming no ones drives to PCM. But to insist that minimal people / less than places in the suburbs use non-car options to get there is simply wrong.

Let's try this again...the location for this development is very odd. It's a good 1.5 miles from Downtown Kennesaw, limiting the number of people who would walk there (how many go there anyway? looks pretty blah), certainly unless they fix up Cherokee. But, it's also tearing down dozens and dozens of residences and buildings in order to build.

I don't think anyone even implied that.
