It's a massive redevelopment. Losing Belk is a positive thing.

Simon is hinting that a redevelopment at Lenox is being planned as well.


Quote:
“You are going to see some things happen at Lenox that are really going to be exciting,” said John Rulli, president of Simon Malls and chief administration officer for Simon Property Group "I can’t talk about it," he said. "We are close to doing it. But you are going to see some pretty cool things happen at Lenox in the not so distant future.”.

I'm confused by these renderings. Are they going to be building this stuff on top of the mall?

If so, awesome! That's what needs to happen with Lenox as well.

Sheer economics. You can't use land worth $20+ million an acre for a parking lot.

Oh nm, I see now. The 3 new buildings will replace the Belk, and I guess be built on top of its parking deck.

Losing Belk IS NOT "a positive thing" it was a real draw for "regular families", too. Including the ones in the 30305, 30326, and 30327 zip codes and adjacent 30306. All high income zip codes, I know, but still MANY people for the solid quality, non insanely overpriced stuff that the likes of Belk and Penny's offer. They same people who fork over thousands for a special occasion outfit STILL need "regular clothes" for themselves and their children for everyday wear. Now, myself, and MOST other people in Metro Atlanta have NO reason to go to Phipps at all, save an occasional movie or for the occasional "splurge" on "something special".

I think the new plans are Fabulous!!!!!! Good Job Phipps. Simon hinted in the ABC article that plans for Lenox are going to be "massive" but advised they are still on the table. I'm so happy to see all the changes going on in the city! I wonder how much a membership at a Signature LTF will be. Sandy Springs Diamond Club already is about 150-165. Loosing Belk is a plus. The store may have done well with families but the area is going more towards the higher fashion realm and Belk doesn't fit the mold. Sorry. Lets Keep Prada, Dior Gucci and Trade Kim Rogers and Chaps.... Just Sayin.

The new plans are great. Away with park lots and let’s get vertical!

I'd prefer these developers to purchase all the land around the Lenox Marta station for this development. Without a very close rapid rail connection, this development is going to make traffic even more of a dumpster fire than it already is.

What? There are two rail stations in the immediate vicinity.
