Proposed Glenwood Park retail area, supposedly anchored by a WalMart, renderings released.
Feast your eyes on the retail center proposed near Glenwood Park, Atlanta Beltline | Atlanta News & Opinion Blog | Fresh Loaf | Creative Loafing Atlanta
Looks very similar to the Edgewood Retail District.

Edit: Beat me to it

Fuqua just submitted their "Second Revision":

"NPU-W is very troubled by the the fact that rather than submitting a new application, which this clearly is since the two previous applications were rejected by the City of Atlanta.

NPU-W has written a letter to the City requesting that it confirm that the City will not process the application as submitted, but rather will require the applicant to file a new application.

Regardless, NPU-W is preparing a response to the Second Revised Application."

These designs are worse than before IMO. One huge suburban big box with a large unbroken expanse of surface parking. I was hoping they were going to come back with something that was going to offer real city blocks and walk-ability, even if it had a big box. But get this out of here. It seems Foqua is not at all taking this development seriously.

Still looks like an awful lot of asphalt. Why don't they just put the parking underneath or in a deck?

They do that in other Walmarts.

I'm all for development on that site, but obviously Fuqua has no concern for the surrounding neighborhood and the Beltline Master Plans. It's ridiculous to submit one after another a suburban plaza with a huge parking lot. I don't understand why it can't be more like the Glenwood Development. I know that city has a parking space requirement, but if Glenwood was able to pull it off next store and still get the urban feeling that they got, why can't that be done in Fuqua's plans? Aside from the awful traffic that will be on Glenwood Ave, I can't imagine anything there like the Edgewood Plaza or the plaza in midtown across from Ponce City Market. They are both awful designs that don't make for safe walking, biking, or even driving. I hope this gets rejected once again - he has proven time and time again that his company belongs in Alpharetta, not Atlanta.

That's all intown residents are asking for. Its not that all of us object to Walmart, see the Wlamart at Historic Westside Village. We just want an urban-deisgned development.
