A controversial project connected to the Atlanta BeltLine by Piedmont Park now has the thumbs up from the city’s economic development board.
Channel 2 investigative reporter Nicole Carr was the only television journalist inside the Invest Atlanta meeting Thursday morning as Fuqua Development sealed the deal on the property needed for the project at 10th and Monroe.
Now, it’s up to the city council to rezone.
The project would bring an 11-story hotel, a grocery store, townhomes and apartment living, with the mandated 30 percent affordable housing, across from Piedmont Park.
Opponents, including Midtown neighborhood associations, say this is a high-traffic area and a dangerous intersection.
Why some people feel like the vote was pushed through last minute without proper input from people who live nearby, on Channel 2 Action News at 6 p.m.
