Throwing my 2 cents in and say that behind scenes there are developers now actively looking into this development. This is going to be huge for the College Park/Airport and the south side area.

That's great news.

The most recent article also mentioned that College Park has received over a dozen LOIs from a myriad of companies. So there's no doubt the interest is strong given the cheap land and proximity to the airport. It was just that no one was willing to take on the risk.

You didn't ask for clarification. You instead jumped to your own conclusion.

Moving on and getting back to the topic of College Park, below is the most recent marketing plan that has been released.

Incorrect.... please learn reading comprehension. I understand you want the preceding sentence to explain the context of the second sentenceís communication failure of your original statement, but alas Cumberland and Perimeter was developed differently.

Iím sorry you are so self-defensive over this matter, but it was worth nothing that your comparison areas were developed differently.

Please, stop. You completely misunderstood his initial comment and now are creating an argument based on how you want to interpret it. His initial comment was about the STYLE of the development, not the PROCESS.

I don't usually log in to comment. But this was getting annoying. He even highlighted in a response what he meant.

It looks like they only planned to construct Phase 1 in 9 or so months. How do you think theyíll pull that off?

Most of the work in Phase 1 appears to only be improvements to existing road infrastructure. The exception is with the Rhodes Street bridge to Camp Creek Pkwy and the roundabout.

IMO, 9 months really isn't necessarily unrealistic for repaving, drainage and landscaping. Although with the labor shortages right now, it could be too optimistic.

It is now going to be a $700+ million project over 20 acres with nearly 5 million square feet of class A office, including corporate headquarters; as many as six hotels; and 758,000 square feet of retail, including multiple restaurants and a premium outlet mall. The plan would also add a 5K loop walking/running trail around the development and a golf-related entertainment venue, and it would convert the city's historic golf course to 18 holes using a reversible 9-hole design.

The LOIs include seven proposals for residential development, multifamily, townhomes and single family residential projects; four for hotels that would be new flags to the area; two for class A office; and two for retail development

Sounds promising. I look at College Park and see a treasure. If I could afford to invest there, I would seriously consider it. It's one of the few places so close to Atlanta I could envision getting a really good return on investment down the road. Plus it's near to the Airport?!!? You can't beat that.

I actually just read up on it a bit. It looks like the 5 year goal is to develop the anchor commercial/office spaces and amenities.

Five-Year Development Plan

The First Build Out/Five Year Plan is an ambitious plan to capitalize on existing community
assets and HJAIA traffic to develop the anchor commercial, retail, office space, entertainment amenities, hotels, and golf course improvements, creating a truly iconic, global experience.
There is demand for 420,000 square feet of office, 680 hotel rooms, 390,000 square feet of retail, 880 rental apartment units, and 100 for-sale townhomes. Over the following 5-10 years, the remainder of the site is anticipated to grow incrementally. It is envisioned for local developers and entrepreneurs to infill smaller parcels with commercial, office, and entertainment uses.
If Iím interpreting it correctly, I still think itís extremely ambitious. Of course, you can never predict the duration of a depression (hopefully it doesnít get to that point) but the foot traffic from the worldís busiest airport certainly isnít a bad investment hedge. Economic downturn or not.
