Midtown Alliance Schedules Blueprint 3.0 Open Houses

Midtown Blueprint 3.0 MyMidtownMojo.com april 16, 2015It’s been awhile since the original Blueprint Midtown was conceived. What you see today in Midtown Atlanta, from new condominium buildings built over the last 10 years, streetscape improvements and such, are a result of that plan.

Midtown Alliance Schedules Blueprint 3.0 Open Houses

But as we know, all good plans need a review and an update to keep up with the changing times we ALL are experiencing. And so, the Midtown Alliance has announced a series of Open Houses to seek the input of Midtown residents, workers, employers and community stakeholders about what they want to see in the future of Midtown Atlanta.

As I know it, there will be some suggestion boards with ideas already on them, and you will be given an opportunity to “voice” your opinion about these potential projects. This is a great way to really gauge the public’s  thoughts about projects and the future.

Here are the upcoming Open House dates:

  • Blueprint 3.0: Input Session at Food Truck Thursdays 
  • Thursday, April 23 at 11:30 a.m. | Food Truck Park at 12th Street & Peachtree Street
  • Blueprint 3.0: Input Session & Happy Hour 
    Wednesday, April 29 at 5:00 p.m. | Saltwood- Loews Atlanta Hotel Midtown / 1065 Peachtree Street
  • Blueprint 3.0 Input Session & Coffee 
    Wednesday, May 6 at 8:00 a.m. | 800 Peachtree St., Suite D

You can RSVP (not required, but they would like to have an idea of the number coming!) HERE

Midtown Atlanta Art Festivals | Festival On Ponce April 11-12, 2015

One of the awesome things I love about Midtown Atlanta is the festivals. It seems like every time you turn around, there is another one to attend. I’ve certainly had to go into “look but don’t buy” mode as I’ve got no more room unless I part with something. But it’s always amazing to see what these people can create!

Midtown Atlanta Art Festivals | Festival On Ponce April 11-12, 2015

Festival On Ponce April 11-12, 2015Festival on Ponce is another great festival that takes place in a park we often drive by but forget it’s really a park…Olmsted Linear Park! The park runs along side Ponce De Leon Avenue after it passes the intersection of Briarcliff/Moreland and continues past the Fernbank Museum.

The Festival hours are Saturday, 10am-6pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.

Over 125 displays of arts and crafts, folk and outsider art will be there along with food and beverage! And its…..FREE!  The Festival On Ponce is sponsored in part by The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. They sponsor numerous festivals around Atlanta and you can find those at their website!

You can also learn more about Olmsted Park from the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance.

Looking forward to seeing you in the Park!

You’ll also be close to the new Ponce City Market if they have any of their retail open as well as the new Krog Street Market. Lots of things to see and do in Midtown Atlanta and the surrounding area!

Boeing Considers Midtown Atlanta for Research Center

AirplaneSources are reporting that aerospace big guy Boeing is scouting Midtown Atlanta locations for a research center. If the center happens, it would join other top companies such as AT&T, Home Depot, NCR and Worldpay US in developing corporate research centers near one of the world’s top engineering schools.

The increase and of new research and development centers and corporate campuses in Midtown Atlanta clearly show the desire of companies to be convenient to the talent pool called Georgia Tech! Of course, for Tech, the establishment of these centers is a perfect pipeline of jobs for graduates as well as the all mighty private sector research dollars for the university at a time when federal research money is harder to find.

No idea as to where the center could be located, but certainly MyMidtownMojo and Thomas Ramon Realty are here to help any Boeing employees that may relocate to the area, and certainly any new hires that are looking to call Midtown Atlanta home.
