New, 6 comments

When the Atlanta Streetcar opens in a couple of months, it could wend through a thriving business corridor — or a mirage, depending on your point of view. An initiative launched this week to fill empty retail spaces along the streetcar route with rent-free pop-up galleries and businesses. This could be a brilliant way to whet entrepreneurial appetites downtown, but does it feel a little Detroit-y? The deadline for pop-up applications — and a chance to bag $500 grants — is Feb. 28.
