Stop by Harold’s, check out the Atlanta Streetcar progress

As we've observed, while the Atlanta Streetcar offers huge future potential for shops and restaurants in the Edgewood/Auburn Ave. corridor, at the present, it's creating, if not nightmares, certainly a less-than-dreamy business environment.

Talkin ’bout my generation: Downtown developers on Millennials and the Atlanta Streetcar

For the past ten years, nonprofit organizations Central Atlanta Progress and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District have brought together Downtown businesses for a day of economic boosterism, toasting the past year’s successes and touting upcoming projects.

Five Ideas We’re Rooting For

The Atlanta Streetcar
Granted, the first streetcars to roll through Atlanta since 1949 will travel only a 2.6-mile route connecting one cluster of tourist attractions (the World of Coke and its Centennial Park neighbors) to another (the King historic district) via blighted stretches of Auburn and Edgewood avenues. But we’re still cheering for this first effort to reconnect sections of the city ripped apart by 1950s and 1960s highway construction and hoping that locals join tourists on the streetcar, slated to debut in the latter part of 2013.

How I walked the Atlanta Streetcar route and became a convert—well, basically.

Our hike down Edgewood Avenue (right) might not have delivered a full-on Road-to-Damascus epiphany, but it certainly left me ready to do a little evangelizing on behalf of the project.
