H.E. Holmes, which has a bus route to Six Flags Over Georgia during the park's seasonal operating hours, opened in Decemeber 1979. Plans for iVillage include a giant chess set surrounded by benches and lawn and deck areas to host public events.
Applications for those interested in leasing space should be available in January here. Organizers are looking for a "mix of tenants that meet community needs, provide attractive amenities around the station, and foster innovation," according to a spokesman, but more specific criteria was not provided.
The project, which may be completed in April 2019, will be located adjacent to the transit station on the site’s MLK Drive side. It will occupy a parking area that has been out of use for some time, so no existing parking spaces will be lost, the spokesman said.
