Development in Buckhead Picking Up; Farewell, Westside Smokestack; Ponce City Market Destruction Porn

The Roundup from Curbed highlights stories already widely reported in the Atlanta medias over the past few days.

Buckhead— it's been widely reported that Buckhead real estate stalwarts Regent Partners and Pope & Land Enterprises are close to launching a new office-heavy, mixed-use development on the site of the old American InterContinental University building at 3330 Peachtree. The faded building sits neatly in between Regent's Sovereign and Tower Place developments, and will apparently be anchored by a trading floor for TD Ameritrade.

Smyrna— now that Georgia Power has brought the second of three natural gas units online, the smokestack above Plant McDonough Atkinson's days are numbered. The smokestack has been a prominent feature (well, really the only feature) of the far west side of Atlanta's skyline since the 1960's, but it is slated to be dismantled this summer. So long as it's not belching smoke into the air, why not leave it in place? [Smyrna-Vinings Patch]

Old Fourth Ward— as we've reported previously, Jamestown has made it very easy to track construction progress on the Ponce City Market project on Ponce de Leon. For fans of destruction porn, there's some good helmet cam video of the demolition of the Glen Iris wall floating around the internets. [VaHi-Druid Hills Patch]
