In Atlanta, 2016 Forecast is Huge for Development

New, 5 comments

While it might not be 2014 — that momentous year when Atlanta debuted a new Buckhead district, its first streetcar in ages, Krog Street Market, two sterling downtown tourist attractions, the initial phases of Ponce City Market, and numerous residential towers — this fledging known as 2016 is shaping up to be huge on ATL's development front. As the AJC notes in a story titled "High-impact projects loom large in 2016," thousands of apartments are still in the city's pipeline, two professional stadiums are nearing top-out, and developers are taking chances again like it's 2005. The newspaper spotlights a grab-bag of projects from Tyler Perry's Fort McPherson, to Assembly in Doraville and John Portman & Associates' High Performance Computing Center (a.k.a. Technology Square Phase II), which could launch this year. While it might not be on the same scale, we'll take the liberty of adding Ponce City Market's sky-high mini amusement park — "The Roof" — to 2016's potential highlights, as it should be the cherry on one remarkable piece of adaptive-reuse cake.
