Ok, that makes more sense.


Now, let's play "prediction:"


If those five gay bars were to relocate, where do you think they would go? Or, what do you think would happen to them?

Makes sense, I was imagining this taking over more than it is - though what is being added to the park is amazing!

Exxon will be right across the street from the park- yuck.

Ansley Mall and the Exxon should be replaced with some kind of modern, urban mixed-use.

I've little doubt that this will happen in short order, particularly in light of this development.
If not for the last recession, it probably would have already transpired.

Ansley Mall is iconic.

It's a single-story strip mall, with a huge surface parking lot. And a Starbucks, Panera, a Pier 1 Imports and a gas station. You really think the middle of the city should be like Gwinnett, just because it's well-known?

All the 20th century suburban shopping centers along the Beltline should be replaced with actual city stuff.

(Which is why it's so ridiculous that Fuqua is building new ones.)

Well, guess they'll have to find street parking or public transportation. I'm sure all of the giant surface parking lots in Manhattan would be full too of every commercial building provided them, yet that isn't reason enough for them to do so clearly. Eventually we will have to move away from suburban mentality.
