I didn't think a Ferris wheel belonged in the middle of Atlanta, either. But, I was wrong or so it appears.

Is this on the edge of the Park? If this is built there, the "cabin" design won't look totally ridiculous. I guess... In any case, I don't think it's any "cheesier" than Hard Rock Hotel...

O that's a good point. We have always had tourism in Atlanta, but not to this degree. With Margaritaville and the Hard Rock Hotel, it seems we have made it as a serious tourist destination. I can only imagine the introduction of these two commercial chain tourist locations, more is to come.

This stuff isn't for me, but I don't hate it either, this is just further diversification of the economy. Other places solely depend on tourism, just add this to the list. Tech, entertainment, transportation, major corporate offices and HQs, logistics... Atlanta is on fire.


...too soon?

I'm not saying anything, because it could be worse, like a Guy Fieri restaurant.

That said, a lot of the times I have family coming through town, I end up meeting them around COP and having dinner at some generic chain restaurant. I've had a hard time finding any decent local places to eat in the immediate vicinity that aren't just hotel restaurants or food court spots.

they aren't native but they certainly aren't invasive... they have a lot of trouble reproducing in our colder climate, so the only palm trees you see around here were intentionally planted there.

Id rather see this than a parking lot. Plus with outdoor seating it will give more foot traffic to this area.

If they could just tone down the tropical thing, but that's their shtick so I guess they all look like that? Do the ones in Chicago, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Syracuse, Nashville, etc. look like that too? I guess as long as other large cities have them Atlanta might as well have one too.


**no, they all look different. I assume they won't build that monstrosity in downtown Atlanta.

The College Football HOF is a national attraction...don't get caught in believing that college football is all a southern thing - think about USC, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and many other places with crazy fans. I'm a big college football fan and I even visited South Bend to see the HOF years ago, and believe when I say that the people there were from all over the country. Think about it being located in a major city like Atlanta and it will be twice as popular.
