Creative Loafing reports that the Reynoldstown Civic Improvement League has voted in favor of Fuqua Development’s new mixed-use development, Madison Yards, at 905 Memorial Drive. The 17.5 acre site, the former Legget and Platt warehouse facility, is at the corner of Bill Kennedy Way and adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine.

The plan calls for a grocery store, an eight-screen theater, a fitness center, retail space, office space, restaurants, and 700 apartments and condos. There will be 500 parking spaces tucked behind building facades and on the end of the property facing Interstate 20.

Fuqua is also developing the nearby Glenwood Place, another mixed-use community on the BeltLine anchored by a Kroger supermarket.

The Madison Yards project will still have to be approved by NPU-N, the city’s zoning board and city council.
