SunTrust Park development sparking retail demand
Atlanta Business Chronicle | December 10, 2014

Just months after breaking ground on SunTrust Park and its adjacent mixed-use project, the Atlanta Braves are already talking expansion.

In a conference call with Atlanta media today, Braves executive Derek Schiller said the first phase of the project - which is slated to open in 2017 - has generated greater than anticipated demand.

The acknowledgment underscores buzz in the marketplace that large fashion and sporting goods retailers want to be a part of the project.

The Braves would have to expand the size of the first phase by at least 100,000 square feet to accommodate the retailers, according to people familiar with the market. One site sparking great interest is just west of Interstate 285 along Circle 75 Parkway near the connection to the proposed pedestrian bridge.

Home Run Projects
Shopping Center Business | October 28, 2014

Fuqua Development has quickly made a name for itself in the Southeast with a number of mixed-use projects that are springing up in infill neighborhoods around Atlanta, South Carolina, Alabama and Florida. However, what is putting the company on the map nationally was the recent selection of the firm to develop the retail component of the new stadium for the Atlanta Braves, and the retail for the accompanying mixed-use development, which will span several hundred thousand square feet. The Atlanta Braves announced last year that they would move to a new stadium in Cobb County, Georgia, in 2017. The stadium would be surrounded by several million square feet of accompanying office, hotel, multifamily, restaurant, entertainment and retail space, closer to what the team considers its core fan base. Shopping Center Business recently spoke with Jeff Fuqua, President of Fuqua Development, at his office in Atlanta to discuss the company's new projects and find out more about the Braves development.

Goodbye proposed Amtrak and Greyhound transit hub near Atlantic Station? Hello Fuqua's new development
Creative Loafing | October 17, 2014

A nearly 14-acre swath of land west of Atlantic Station has remained vacant for the better part of the last decade. But what was once set to become a multi-modal transit hub could now be turned into a mixed-use development by an all-too-familiar face: Jeff Fuqua.

The vacant site located down the street from Atlanta Waterworks at the southeast corner of 17th Street and Northside Drive had once been eyed as a possible transit-oriented development that would include new Amtrak and Greyhound stations. Local real-estate developer Carter led the talks with Houston-based real-estate company Lionstone and the State Road and Tollway Authority, which each owned roughly half of the total land.

But the property went back on the market after Carter's talks broke down. SRTA Director of Marketing and Communications Malika Reed Wilkins tells CL the authority has received numerous inquiries for the site over the years.

Fuqua is Taking His Mixed-Use Talents to the Westside.
Curbed Atlanta | October 16, 2014

Sources indicate that one of Atlanta's most prolific and controversial developers will lay claim to a prominent piece of Midtown's western fringes, next door to Atlantic Station and IKEA.

Jeff Fuqua (sound the Darth Vader music!) plans to build high-density residences, standalone houses and commercial spaces at the corner of 17th Street and Northside Drive. A few years ago, Amtrak flirted with building a new station on the vacant 12.5-acre site, and ever since, it's been one of the most sizable pieces left for development between Midtown and Howell Mill Road. The property sits at the western entrance to Atlantic Station and should allow for superb skyline views.
