Neighborhood Rejects Sembler's Plan to Turn Mega Big Box Shopping Center Into Larger Big Box Center (with Grocery)

New, 4 comments

Neighborhood Planning Unit B (NPU-B) has rejected big box developer extraordinaire The Sembler Company's request for rezoning on land it has acquired around its already-standing development near the Lindbergh MARTA station. Though the addition of a (much-needed) grocery store was frequently cited as the primary catalyst for additional retail development adjacent to Sembler's Lindbergh Plaza, neighborhood officials feared the scale and tenanting of the new phase would attract non-local auto traffic and hamper efforts to make the area a dense, walkable community anchored by the mass transit infrastructure of the Lindbergh MARTA station, multifamily housing and local boutiques and restaurants. Though the losses are too many to count, mark this one a win for bringing sanity to Atlanta's city planning.
