The forum's keynote speaker was Jeff Fuqua, principal at Fuqua Development, who discussed his company's role in developing the retail component of the $452 million mixed-use development the Braves are building adjacent to the new SunTrust Park in Cumberland.

SUNTRUST PARK GIVES CUMBERLAND 'ICONIC' DEVELOPMENT
BISNOW | July 24, 2015

Braves' SunTrust Park is finally giving the Cumberland/Galleria area something iconic. And that's why Comcast is moving there.

"The idea that Cumberland, which as much as we love it, has missed a soul. It doesn't have its Ponce City Market, or its White Provisions, or its Streets of Buckhead. Well, it does now," says Pope & Land's Mason Zimmerman, one of our panelists involved in the SunTrust Park development during our Future of Cumberland event this week at Galleria 400. Mason-who's spearheading the office portion of SunTrust Park's mixed-use center surrounding the Braves stadium-says it's that sense of being part of an icon that attracted Comcast to anchor the office. "You're now seeing the ripple effect of that."

Mason was among an all-star lineup of those tied in with the new Braves project, including Atlanta Braves EVP Mike Plant, DLA Piper's Brian Fielding (our moderator), Pollack Shores' Michael Blair and Fuqua Development's Jeff Fuqua.

Gwinnett Daily Post | July 22, 2015

The city celebrated its three-year anniversary during Tuesday's regularly scheduled city council meeting, but Mayor Mike Mason started looking into the future in hopes that the city's town green and its development would be ready to go for the five-year anniversary.

Tuesday's meeting got that started as the city council approved plans from Fuqua Acquisitions II, LLC, to build the mixed-use development which will house restaurants, retail space, office space, a movie theater and town homes.

Previous discussions on the property centered around the type of restaurants that would be in the development, as well as the amount of parking that would be needed.

Decatur Crossing: New Traffic Light on Scott Boulevard and the Partial Closure of Blackmon Drive
Decatur Metro | July 8, 2015

A new post on the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association website sums up the recent approval of Decatur Crossing Phase II rezoning request by the DeKalb Commission and points out a few, very notable nuances in the agreement - which includes 27 conditions negotiated by the Cross-Neighborhood Committee.

Among the most noteworthy changes coming, Fuqua will add a new traffic light on Scott Boulevard at Blackmon Drive, as shown in the map above. Fuqua will also extend Blackmon Drive as the "the main road" through the development.

In response to concerns about cut-through traffic on the existing stretch of Blackmon Drive, a condition passed that Blackmon Drive would be partially closed to traffic with no entrance from Scott Boulevard and only a right turn allowed off of Blackmon onto Scott. See the map below for detail, courtesy of MANA.

Demolition finally begins for North Decatur/Scott site
Atlanta Journal Constitution | June 26, 2015

After months delay, demolition's begun on the Scott Boulevard Baptist Church, future site for Fuqua Development's mixed-use project. Razing the church and the nine homes behind it on Barton Way should take about 60 days according to Fuqua Principal Jeff Fuqua. Also, DeKalb County's board of commissioners approved Phase two on Tuesday, which Fuqua calls the project's "last major hurdle."

He added that foundation work and grading for phase one should begin by late September with construction expected to last "18 to 20 months." When both phases are ultimately completed the development will include 700 apartments and 20 ground-floor retailers including a natural-foods grocery (as yet unnamed), restaurants and offices.

DeKalb approves Fuqua's Decatur Crossing rezoning
decaturish.com | June 24, 2015

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved rezoning requests Tuesday for Phase II of the Decatur Crossing development, according to the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association (MANA).

Last month, Fuqua had presented its plans to the Board of Commissioners, but a vote on it was deferred until this week's meeting. A previous MANA post explained, "MANA representatives spoke to support a deferral, as the Cross-Neighborhoods Committee continues to negotiate with Fuqua for improvements to pedestrian safety and access and alternatives that will help modulate cut-through traffic through our neighborhoods."

But it appeared a compromise had been agreed upon. An update on MANA Wednesday said:

On Tuesday, June 23, the Board of Commissioners approved Fuqua's rezoning request for Phase II. MANA and the Cross-Neighborhoods Committee were able to come to terms to support the project. We will post more information, including the agreed-upon conditions and private agreement soon. Demolition of the former Scott Boulevard Baptist Church began yesterday.
