Atlanta's Zoning Review Board gave approval to plans by the Sembler Company and Fuqua Development for a mixed-use development near the Lindbergh Center at its meeting on Thursday night, and to the development.
The issue will now go before the Atlanta City Council Zoning Committee for review on Aug. 1 and then before the full City Council on Aug. 20 for a final decision.
While local media has generally given more coverage to those opposed to the development, , Jeff Fuqua of Fuqua Development told Patch on Wednesday that he has heard no vocal opposition from the public at meetings discussing the issue and that there are many in the community that are in favor of it.
His company has spent millions, he said, attempting to come up with a plan NPU-B agrees wth. Ultimately, he said the issue comes down to a disagreement on what "urban" development really is.
Expect more on this story as it develops.
