Give your comments on what type of business should take over this prime Peachtree Road space.
The closure of BluePointe last year left empty a rectangular, turquoise-colored structure on Peachtree Road. The vacant property is near another high-profile empty place, the old Filene's location. Another restuarant might be a good fit for the distinctive place on Peachtree Road. Clearer material would allow diners to look out and walkers to look in. That would especially make for urban excitement when the Buckhead Boulevard project is complete. Thinking back to the old days of TV, when the "Today Show" and "American Bandstand" used to show the street traffic outside their studio windows, maybe a Buckhead-based TV show could set up there. Are you listening CNN? Let us know in Comments your ideas for the site.
