I guess you haven't been in many NPU or LUZ meetings regarding PD-H. It is not any easier to get than other rezonings, actually it is harder since it is site-plan specific.

And do you really not like places like Glenwood Park? It is probably the best new development in the city IMO. All those houses and buildings should be legal to build in 95% of the city with needing to get special site-specific zoning.

Meanwhile, they're losing 17 to 3 to a damn FCS team... In their initial game, in their home stadium lol. Pathetic. Watch how that crowd drops for the rest of the year.

Good article on the Turner Field redevelopment in today's AJC.

Quote:
The development team, led by Atlanta-based Carter, plans to start renovation in November of nine aging brick buildings it controls there as well as construct new buildings for a mix of food, services and retail.

The first phase of the project is also expected to include a new 700-bed, $70 million student housing building just north of Georgia State Stadium. The student housing project will break ground in February, said David Nelson, senior vice president at Carter.

In an exclusive interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Carter officials outlined what they see as the first projects that will help create a critical mass for future development. The interview came as Georgia State kicked off its inaugural football season Thursday in its newly christened stadium with what was expected to be a sellout crowd of 25,000.

Carter President Scott Taylor said the company has a corporate campus to the north and additional retail slated for additional phases. He said the development team plans to pitch businesses that desire to be close to downtown, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and a major research university. But the draw, he said, is also about being part of a neighborhood.

Many businesses start their search in Buckhead, Midtown or the Central Perimeter area, but “we are trying to really shift that conversation so that people think about Summerhill,” Taylor said. “This is really the gateway to downtown.”

Nelson said the student housing project, to be developed by a partner out of Texas, should be completed by summer 2019. Shops and restaurants along Georgia Avenue are expected to open before kickoff of the next football season.

Though Carter declined to name tenants, the company said about 20,000 square feet of the 55,000 square feet in the first phase of retail is spoken for, with announcements of tenants to follow in the coming weeks.

More....Redo of Turner Field to start with student housing, shops
