Buckhead, Atlanta: Making the Sausage

John Schaffner's BuckheadView blog is featuring an excellent piece on the early stages of Oliver McMillan's permitting process for their vision of re-working the Streets of Buckhead. Though the intricacies of the work of a Development Review Committee usually hold limited interest for the lay person, when it comes to a project as high profile as Buckhead, Atlanta, folks may do well to take notice. In addition to identifying the two primary issues that came up (maintaining safety and flow on Pharr Road and the look and feel of the streetscapes through the development), the article serves as a nice primer on the basics of developing real estate in Atlanta. Given the relative dearth of new development since 2008 or so, even real estate veterans may need a refresher. [BuckheadView]
