Looks like some residents are not pleased by a developer's plan to build a high-density, $45 million mixed-use project smack dab in the middle of Inman Park.

It's not true.

Everybody knows that only suburbanites who are afraid of black people riding mass transit to their neighborhoods oppose high density development.

There's a big sign at the front of Inman Park that says "Atlanta's First Suburb," so maybe you're still right?

No way they win. The residents approved the project at their Neighborhood meeting and NPU meetings.

What does that have to do with the article? Its most likely to do with the amount of traffic it that area. All the streets are narrow 2 lane roads.

This. I used to work right there, and adding 570 cars to the area would seriously suck.

I walked through there Tuesday night. The streets were packed with cars and taxis. All the patios were full of people.

Ah, I get it....

So density is good, especially enough density to attract mass transit and walkability. But only when it's not in your own backyard.

If not that, what am I not getting?

Is that not the cost of the dense living that you so depserately crave?
