The Underground Creative Carts Collective debuted on July 24 as a biweekly gathering that invites members of the community to watch a rotating group of artists transform Underground's wooden cart kiosks into art pieces.
Shaneel Lalani, a newcomer to downtown’s development scene, will lead the overhaul of the 400,000-square-foot property located next to the region’s busiest rail station, in the city’s densest neighborhood, and near to billion-dollar redevelopment plans from both CIM Group and Newport.
So far, Newport has spent $88 million acquiring property and has started gutting and prepping spaces. With the help of city incentives and historic-building tax credits, Kunkat wants to strip the wood and aluminum facade on a Peachtree nail salon to expose the original brick and stone and has torn out old carpet and drywall in the old Sylvan Hotel to reveal the historic brick walls beneath.
