PARKING THE PROPOSALS: In Atlanta, J. Scott Trubey reports four development teams have “pitched their visions for the area around the Braves’ stadium.” The city’s economic development arm, Invest Atlanta, sent out “a request for ideas for how developers might transform 55 acres of land north of the ballpark into a mixed-use sports and entertainment district with year-round activity.” At the request of Invest Atlanta, each of the Turner Field proposals “contains expansion of the downtown streetcar or other transit links, parking decks with at least 10,000 spaces, and a design theme to honor Hank Aaron’s home run record and the history of the Braves.” Trubey outlines each of the four group’s proposals (ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION, 1/11).
