Construction on Fuqua's "Decatur Crossing" Should Begin This Summer
Decatur Metro | January 25, 2015

At "Decatur Crossing," Fuqua's future development on the soon-to-be-former site of Scott Boulevard Baptist Church, things are little more preliminary. Fuqua said his firm closed on the church and nine surrounding homes in the North Decatur Road/Scott Boulevard/Barton Way triangle last fall. A salvage company has reportedly already stripped the church, and many adjacent homes are boarded up.

Twenty-eight other nearby homes are still in the zoning process, which Fuqua expected to be complete in April or May. Following that timeline, construction would begin this summer and take about 18 months.

The first nine-month phase of that, Fuqua said, would bring 250 apartment and/or condo units, about 50 townhomes and some office and retail spaces - namely a "natural food store." Exact specs for Phase II weren't available, but Fuqua said it would, residentially speaking, "get a little denser" than the initial phase.

Atlanta Business Chronicle | January 9, 2015

On Jan. 5, nearly three years after first pitching a plan, Fuqua Development LLC got a nod of support from Atlanta City Council for Lindbergh Place, a new mixed-use project in Buckhead.

It was a good start to what's sure to be a busy year for the prolific Atlanta developer. The company today has 12 projects in the works for metro Atlanta that spread from East Atlanta to Woodstock, representing more than $1 billion in planned development.

The list includes a coveted spot on the development team for the $400 million mixed-use project that will surround the Atlanta Braves' new Cobb County ballpark, SunTrust Park.

A central focus this year for Fuqua Development is identifying retail tenants for the SunTrust Park mixed-use project. Set to open in 2017, the development could include up to 500,000 square feet of retail space (about the size of a regional mall). It promises to be an exciting mix of first-to-market restaurants, fashion boutiques, entertainment venues and possibly a grocery store.
