Great idea. I would play there, assuming that soccer is still legal once Trump becomes president.

It will still be legal he will just mandate that when we play Mexico our goalkeepers net will be slightly smaller so its harder for them to get a ball thru.

Please pardon my enormous skepticism of this article at this auspicious moment when the Brookhaven will be forced to render a decision that will consume every square inch of the MARTA property.

Let’s see. No high rises. No parking decks. No tax abatements. No need for costly traffic plan implementation. Does not exasorbate the need for new sewers because of a giant development.

Everyone involved (mostly) rides public transit. Effing brilliant idea. Let’s do it.

Scooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooore!

So neighbors, is this low density enough for you?

I do not believe this to be either/or, this ‘might ‘ be in addition to the development… if they can find the space.

All of the above PLUS soccer fields on the top deck of parking garages – reducing parking spaces.

That’s what I heard, this will be in addition to the existing plans for the TOD. Oh what fun it will be with a bunch of teenagers running around, not enough parking spaces for the MARTA patrons even with the empty store fronts and apartments.

The MARTA TOD as proposed will never see the light of day.

I hope you are right – would love to see a TOD there, but on that the community embraces, not something that will be detrimental to the surrounding neighborhoods.

Both Doraville and Chamblee desperately need something, anything, besides car lots. It is extremely disappointing to see the car lots on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard wrapping around the Brand Smart to occupy land formerly occupied by the GM plant. What a profound waste of land. A car lot requires a huge amount of cleared land and offers the community minimal return because a lot simply does not need to employ more than a tiny number of salesmen at any given time. I can’t believe no one was interested in building a walkable mixed use development with retail on the ground floor,… Read more »

That property is in Doraville, not Chamblee. Chamblee is experiencing a lot of revitalization right now along Peachtree Boulevard and surrounding neighborhoods. I would like to see the car dealerships pushed OTP into Norcross.

The old GM site will eventually end up as car lots, repair centers etc due to the fact the land is not developable as is – and the current owner cannot get adequate financing. The city leadership of Doraville have rezoned it for failure as mixed use at the request of the property owners. The Lunaville dream description above for this fantasy project was presented to the public so they could bait and switch to use tax money to pay for the car lot development abatements. There is a reason the new tax subsidized road inside that site will lead… Read more »
