Madison Yards calls for 160,000+ square feet of retail, 80,000 square feet of offices, a grocer, and movie theatre on former mattress factory site.

Fuqua Development is moving forward with plans to develop its next Memorial Drive mixed-use project Madison Yards.

The Atlanta-based developer this week filed a permit application with City of Atlanta to begin land development for Madison Yards, Bisnow Tuesday first reported.

The project, at 905 Memorial Drive on a 17-acre site near I-20, calls for 160,000 square feet of retail, 80,000 square feet of offices, a grocer, and movie theatre, replacing what was once a mattress factory.

Madison Yards, situated down the street from Fuqua’s Glenwood Place development, would also include 550 apartment units, developed by Charleston-based multifamily developer Greystar.

The project is already 70 percent leased including a Publix Super Market as the anchor, Jeff Fuqua, founder of Fuqua, told Bisnow.

Fuqua is expected to break ground on Madison Yards the next 60 days.

  1. Not one green roof, water feature for all of the rainwater runoff, just square boxes adding to the heat island that is the city. It sad when places like Turkey, Norway, Thailand get sustainable and innovative design. Here unless a developer is forced by code to be innovative, big box simple minded, basic design is the rule. Ignorance is bliss, and personal greed is now the new normal in this country. Sad……

    Add that this hilltop has super views of the city that are totally lost in this one dimensional design. Not one rooftop bar……

    1. I agree with the previous response. Coming from Chicago, where its tall skyscrapers are in on the green roofs all over the place. And where is the design element? It seems that is is only functional. For a city that is growing its arts and entertainment, this is not leaning towards that audience and movement at all. Who agreed to this design? Not people with artistic vision, that’s for sure.

  3. I live right down the street from this so-called “development” project. The last thing the residents of this neighborhood want is another no-originality strip mall and a Publix. We already have the Krogzilla on Glenwood in an area that also shows little originality. As others have stated, how about a green roof concept and pushing local businesses that can actually bring flavor to the area? The most it will do is inflate property taxes for local homeowners without seeing any form of clear return. The area has been an eyesore for years and it would be nice to create some form of facility that can become usable green space or possibly a community center. At least if I decide to sell my home I’ll get a huge chunk of change from the inflated prices that will no doubt happen.

    No soul Fuqua strikes again.

  4. Personally, I am happy to see Publix down the street from my house as I can’t stand shopping at either Kroger in the area (plus a movie theater and gym are shown on the rendering – both are very welcomed!). I agree about the lack of design however…disappointing and a missed opportunity to do something unique that reflects the diversity of the surrounding neighborhoods.
