That doesn't even include the half mile to Tech or the Piedmont Park where you get more crap along the way. Midtown has a heck of a lot. Do we have Walmart, no, but if you're in any residential building in Midtown and see package delivery 4 times a day you'd know buying behavior has changed and most rely on delivery nowadays.
Exactly. Who goes to a brick and mortar store anymore!? I personally avoid retail stores like the plague....

Omg...that would be AMAZING!

Before they do that they would need to fix 8th & Argonne. Two-way through traffic on two of the narrowest streets in Midtown doesn't make sense

Which areas got changed specifically for zoning, from PCM up Ponce to Midtown or how far?

I was speaking specifically to the parcel east of Venkman's, 750 Ralph McGill. PCM redevelopment proposals I believe are already zoned for mixed use, although they're planning on engaging the community for feedback in the near future, if not already.

That said, the EST may be growing into Atlanta's "West Loop' if development trends continue at this scale.

This is a future transit hub, and I think with all the underutilized land in the area (e.g. Fuqua Whole Foods Shopping Center) I think these are appropriate for the area. I think encouraging high density near transit and low density elsewhere is a smart growth pattern for a city. With current density along the EST and North Ave, the street car would not be utilized appropriately in my opinion, so more density is needed to make rail transit more cost effective.

I'm baffled by how low-density Ponce and North between Midtown and the EST are. Seeing as this corridor is slated for transit and connects two of the most desirable areas in town, I'm surprised it hasn't seen the same growth corridors like Memorial Drive have. It's just a jumble of suburban-style fast food restaurants and dated strip retail. Is there something in the zoning codes that's preventing denser development?

I'll try to refrain from too many comments on this unless we move discussion over to the MARTA thread. North and EST is the future equivalent of a transfer station, but that doesn't mean it needs 18 stories to be functional. While I am personally not against exploring the extent of density built out for this area, many others in the urban planning field and neighboring residents have solid arguments against 18 story developments in the area. Areas identified in the BeltLine master plan as 9+ stories (dark purple: mixed use or dark orange: residential) are fairly limited. Coincidentally, they including PCM (not the proposed hotel location), the section of Midtown Plaza just north of PCM, what looks like where the ORW switchback is located, and along Boulevard.

Sorry about the quality of the upload.


In general, I just want to ensure the area is less insular than PCM is currently, has seamless street level engagement, substantially improved streetscaping, and providing dedicated lane transit with appropriate signal prioritization, transit shelters, and real time map tracking at the transit stops.

Very tall tower?

With 600K+ foot office space, could these be 30+ foot towers?

To prevent disappointment, I'm assuming they're going to be squat and wide, like CODA.

Portman Project Will be Speculative


Quote:
Portman Director of Leasing Travis Garland said in an email that the project would be speculative, meaning the company could go forward on construction without any office tenants committing to signing a lease.

Squat or not....that's a lot of SF and a lot more people thrust into south Midtown. So much for overbuilding apartments!

if it's just one office building with residential buildings around it then it should crack 30

Missing the best part, the header! "Portman Looking To Build Two Spec Office Towers Next To Coda". I was figuring it would probably be more than one tower, but now we know!

I heard GE's Big Data group is looking at this development. Clearly CODA is getting a lot of attention for Portman to want to start Phase II as a speculative development. Also, considering Selig's proposed West Peachtree development is 600K sqft and is 32 stories it is conceivable this could be above 30 stories.

I was thinking the same thing. Cora must have a lot of interest if he's going spec on this.

As for GE big data looking there... that would be awesome. With that, 1105, NCR, and CODA... it's almost time for me to get a job in that part of town. Really awesome stuff going on in midtown.
