Tim Keane is no fan of free parking.“That has been proven time and again, in every single city in the world that the more parking you provide, the more people drive,” said Keane, who became Atlanta’s planning commissioner last summer. “I mean, we live in Atlanta. This is a city that is a great example of: If you design for everyone to drive, then what will you get? Congestion.”

Buckhead Park Over GA400

An excited crowd gathered this past Wednesday at the Buckhead Theatre to get a first look at Phase I concept drawings for the ambitious Park Over GA400. The Buckhead Community Improvement District’s BCID board presented a nearly half-mile long park that “provides ample capacity for plazas, lawns, gardens, pavilions and more. A defining feature of the design includes an allée of high-canopied trees running the length of the park that blends with Atlanta’s urban forest canopy and creates broad shade and memorable open space from Lenox Road to Peachtree Road.

A very exciting part of this new design are the flyover walking paths that allow the existing Path400 trail to connect directly through the center of the park and pass unimpeded over Lenox and Peachtree Roads. Integrating the new park so directly with the miles of existing trails on either side will greatly enhance access and usability of both the trail system and the park.

Edens to Preserve Local Shops at Andrews Square

This mission of preserving local flavor is moving quickly and we are glad to see it happening! Lucy’s Market is a longtime favorite just up the street on West Paces Ferry. Their current location is most certainly destined for high-rise development but they are finding refuge, and a new home, at Andrews Square.
