The main thing is to synchronize the traffic lights. You go one block, stop, you go another block, stop.

How about another bookstore? I really miss Borders. It was my regular 'go to' place every week, to hang out, to relax. It really was Buckhead's social center. How about bringing in Books A Million or something like that? How about bringing in some fresh retailers rather than just all the national chains? How about cleaning up that stretch of Roswell Road near Whole Foods where all those dive bars are year after year? How about finally starting Buckhead Atlanta or doing something with that spot rather than leaving it as one big construction site/hole in the ground? How about filling in all the vacant storefronts for once and for all? I can't believe the old ESPN Zone hasn't been filled in years now. It's a great spot. It's a complete void right now. Someone needs to get on the ball on that one. Also, all the other vacant storefronts, especially along Pharr Road and Paces Ferry east of Peachtree. It looks awful right now.

An expensive suggestion, but I would love to see the space between the Buckhead Marta station and the financial building turned into a pocket park by capping GA 400. Not only would this create some green space in an ideal location (Marta riders waiting on a train for example), but it would help eliminate some of the visual choppiness along that area of 400. I would also like to see the walls of the Marta station along 400 extended all the way to the bridge supports, again to eliminate the visual choppiness.
