All those empty storefronts, offices and apartments around metro Atlanta have propelled the region to ninth in the nation in the balance of securitized commercial real-estate loans that are delinquent, according to a new report from real estate provider Trepp Inc.

The Georgia Department of Transportation, along with City of Atlanta and Little Five Points Community Improvement District, has been working to transform a half-mile section of Moreland Avenue (U.S. 23/Ga. 42) from a traditional urban highway to a Complete Street. A Complete Street usually involves a road diet, to provide a safer corridor for all modes of transportation. What is unique about this corridor is that Moreland Avenue is a six-lane roadway passing through one of Atlanta’s more pedestrian active business districts, Little Five Points.

Part of the fun is purely visceral: “Baby Driver” spins fantastical wheelies all over Atlanta. And unlike, say, the CGI mayhem in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, these chases, crashes and exhilarating loop-the-loop thrills combine technical wizardry with the hands-on genius of a small flotilla of stunt drivers.
Now that the Atlanta City Design Project is nearing completion, Atlanta is making arrangements to present the proposal to stakeholders in a 410-page book that's to be as expansive as the massive proposal to plan for the city’s next 20 years of anticipated growth and development.Read More »

Every year, industries approach Georgia lawmakers asking for new or renewed tax breaks, promising leaps in job growth, industry expansion, or some other worthwhile payoff. But the state is a laggard at checking back on tax breaks and seeing what they do — or don’t — deliver.Read More »
It took four years, but Atlanta has allocated significant funding – up to $26 million – for an initiative Mayor Kasim Reed announced in 2013 to reduce homelessness in the city. This money is the city’s payment into a fund that’s expected to reach a total of $115.6 million.Read More »

MARTA and the City of Atlanta are teaming up to provide the elusive “last mile” for people seeking alternative ways to get around. MARTA and the city’s Relay bike sharing program launched their partnership on July 14 with an actual bike relay from the Colony Square bike station to MARTA’s Arts Center Station. MARTA and city employees “competed” in an effort to “win” the relay.Read More »
