10 Park Place to receive $3M in capital improvements
Quote:
Alan says it helped the case for repositioning the building that the group was able to draft a slew of new leases on the property, pushing occupancy from a low of 40% to above 90%, including an expansion of Grady Health Systems and two full floors for functions of the Fulton County government.

Now, here's hoping they redevelop the parking deck, or at least the ground-level retail, across Decatur Street.

I'd love to see that parcel across the street redeveloped into something that pays homage to the old Kimball House that used to be there:

I can't believe they torn that thing down. Arjay, what were the old timers thinking?

As time goes on it should get better. I wonder how that compares to the CVS on Marietta...

Also, business in general should get better as more residential developments come online.

I just got back from Walgreens. There was a line to check out, and they brought in reinforcements. The store didn't feel crowded, but they were making a lot of sales. People were buying all sorts of household items that you'd expect to be big sellers in a neighborhood store, but maybe not so much in the Downtown store. They're doing solid business.

Nice layout and selection of items. Well lighted store, with quality historically correct details. Stone tile floors, for example, as compared to other drug stores that use industrial carpet or linoleum tile.

If Cobb County and developers can claim that development on Delk Rd and I-75 is because of STP, then this is a legit claim.

Sad, isn't it? I think it was getting a little down at the heels and the city was continuing to migrate northward. At the time everybody was all about going modern. I don't believe there were any financial incentives for historic preservation either.
