  1. Unless GA Power does it differently from the companies I'm familiar with, they will not pay you for excess power unless you do some serious investing in other equipment. To do it right, you need equipment to condition the power to 60Hz, and have remote cut-offs so you won't feed juice back into a dead line. Not having this equipment will, at best, be harmful, and at worst, it can be lethal to lineworkers. Same applies to backup generators as well.

  2. ^That cloverleaf is a monster. I wonder how many historic business structures or homes were torn down just to put up that ONE abomination ? :angry:

    I love how people always gripe about that, but believe it or not, people need to get on and off the freeway. Personally, the interchange is more valuable to me than some crappy old 2 story buildings. Besides, its not really that big when you drive it, curves are actually too tight if you ask me.

  3. Riverfront project grows to $80 million

    By Mike Pare Staff Writer

    A planned downtown Chattanooga marina project coupled with new condominiums and commercial space has grown in size to cost more than $80 million, a Florida developer said.

    The project by Orlandobased Mirabilis Ventures and John Haslett, also of Florida, would be the largest private commercial development ever raised along the city

  4. Sorry for the twenty questions, but where exactly is the Palmetto 8 project? And is the Northshore Project listed above the same project announced with the Greenlife Grocery?
    I have no idea where Palmetto 8 is. However, the northshore project is on frazier ave., next to a gas station, across the road from 417 Frazier. The Greenlife Grocery is supposed to be on Manufacturers Rd IIRC, which intersects with Frazier Ave/Cherokee Blvd just NW of Market St.

    Edit: BTW, 417 Fraizer has been "started", they've leveled the old building and have excavated the basement. Seems like I have a picture somewhere I might post tomorrow.

  5. Just great! I've really enjoyed my trips up to Chatty. Often, I get the impression that there's more going on in DT Chatty than in DT Atlanta. It's really bustling day and nighte.

    I actually ate dinner last spring at that Porter's Steakhouse in the Read House Sheraton. I had a peppercorn steak (I forget the cut). It's very good if you like (make that love) pepper. That street that it fronts (I think MLK) is seeing some development too (EPB Building?). How much was that one?

    Do you know how well the $200M Blue Cross Blue Shield HQ will be integrated into the fabric of DT. It will sit on top of that big hill next to DT.

    Also, I was very impressed by the amount of infill all over downtown. Plus the north shore is seeing lots of activity too.

    IIRC, the EPB Building was around $31 million. I have an artist drawing of the proposed BCBST building, but its from the initial press release, so its accuracy is unknown. From the looks of things, it'll be a collection of connected 4-6 story buildings. Land value is still too low in Chat for any high rises to be economical. Considering its 800,000sq ft., if it was downtown Atlanta, we'd probably be looking at a 50-70 floor building. Here is the picture I have, looks like its on 6th st or MLK Blvd looking west from the CBD.
