Here's a pretty good document from 1976 on what they expected the area's future development to be.
Thanks, Gulch. I haven't heard anybody argue that the parking lot should be there forever.

But there's a certain point where it's not worth the effort to replace the parking lots if it's too low of density.

In fairness, most of that map was built.

Whole Foods is about to open across the street from the Lowes. About 1 or 2 mile from station. Don't really care about that as I do for Chipotle, Taqueria Del Sol etc etc going in.

Wish it was a Trader Joes.

Look everyone. Illiteracy has made its way into this thread. Its in every thread, I suppose this one shouldn't be exempt.

Anyone else who actually lives in Brookhaven join the discussion?

Do former Brookhaven residents count?

No. Particularly those that rented and are still renters.

Well, unfortunately for you, as a former Brookhaven resident that rented (which in your mind means I'm some sort of freak who shouldn't have a voice), I'm gonna keep posting about this issue anyway.

Also, since you're sooooo smart and happen to know more than the rest of us, what kind of development do YOU think should go on the MARTA property?

I just happened to remember you rented here. And rented now. I have a weird memory. You brought it up before.

That said, when you start shelling out nearly $1,000/mth in a property tax I hope you gain some perspective from the owners point of view.

I've already said it should be green space. Brookhaven should rent the land from MARTA indefinitely.
