Transit-oriented?[edit]

Is this really an operative term? Atlantic station receives bus transit service. I understand that it was intended with an element of transit involved -- I heard GDOT speciously received federal money for making the 17th street bridge "streetcar accessible" (whatever the hell that means), but didn't do anything with that. But otherwise, who's calling it "transit-oriented"? It looks like a lifestyle center, maybe a new urbanist development, to me.69.94.192.147 (talk) 03:29, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree. I'm removing it Earlopogous 19:09, 6 April 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Earlopogous (talkcontribs)

Project Creep[edit]

Why is this article under the Georgia Tech wiki project? Georgia Tech and Atlantic Station have nothing to do with each other. Besides the grocery shuttle and being 6 blocks apart. Just wondering. Amazingracer (talk) 03:57, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Criticism section[edit]

Regarding this text:

Atlantic Station has been criticized for being built cheaply as evidenced by structural problems and rusting showing on several of the structures. Fake-brick siding was used to give the impression of real brick on some of the buildings.

The naming of certain rental units such as "Arts Foundry" and "Park District" has drawn criticism for its kitsch and irrelevance to the history and nature of the place. http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0707/p03s03-ussc.html.  Missing or empty |title= (help)

I removed the section when it had no citation, and it was recently added back with a citation. However, I can't find any reference to "Arts Foundry" or "Park District" in the citation. I don't see any citation for the first paragraph. Please discuss here as necessary and cite properly before adding back. -SCEhardT 19:04, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
