STATION TO STATION- MARTA Development Project Planning
Station to Station MARTA owns some prime real estate and has been at work trying to develop some of that property for a year. Under the scheme, MARTA will issue 99-year leases for underused parking lots around its stations or the “air rights” above them to developers, who in turn will put in mixed-use projects that house transit-happy residents and tax-base-bolstering shops and restaurants.
The agency’s goal was to have five projects underway by mid-2015. To see where things stood at the start of the year (Avondale, King Memorial, and Edgewood-Candler Park), read more here… – www.atlantamagazine.com/news-culture-articles/can-ceo-keith-parker-make-marta-cool/
Simply Seoul Kitchen’s Hannah Chung: Atlanta’s Kimchi Queen

Kimchi—the fiery fermented Korean condiment, often made with cabbage or radishes—is hot on the taste buds and hotter in the marketplace. Korean cuisine as a whole has been drawing buzz, due in part to the craze for fusion tacos—filled with meats like bulgogi, or grilled marinated beef—that originated in Los Angeles. Southern chefs have embraced kimchi in particular as a piquant condiment (it blends surprisingly well with grits).
Hannah Chung, founder of Simply Seoul Kitchen, is quickly becoming Atlanta’s kimchi queen. She sells her balanced, fresh-tasting versions (vegan, based on her grandmother’s recipe) at farmers markets as well as in local Whole Foods Markets. In business only since last April, the thirty-two-year-old’s seemingly overnight success began with a lucky break in 2009.
