Biggest duh move ever. Georgia State has a real chance here to build their own football stadium and a college campus like atmosphere like GT or Morehouse/Spelman has.

Do you think GSU can overcome the opposition of the local residents to get it done?

I think so. When it is presented as jobs in the community... An automatic influx of population(students) which would mean a faster timeline for retail, restaurants, etc. You may not turn them all on to it, but I think we get enough.

Yeah. I live close by in East Atlanta and go to church in Summerhill. There isn't going to be much opposition. There is an opportunity for GSU to affect the area the way we affected the Fairlie-Poplar area Downtown. Especially if the Gold and Orange lots that are closest to Summerhill and Peoplestown housing become the retail/residential side. Right now the area is a huge hole. If anyone thinks that it magically will become 100 acres of 3 br 3 ba homes they are smoking some good stuff. I think, Mayor plus City Council Prez plus President = Slam Dunk

Influx of population and retail is more important than the jobs. A lot of it is fear of the LAST two developments in the area which were both, hey lets just build a stadium here. This will be different. Will be more like FSU's College Town development.

RE: GSU eyes campus expansion with Turner Field
I would say having an off campus stadium is usually a negative but GSU does not have a "campus" so less of a big deal. Still a slight negative if the majority of students cant reasonably walk to the game. I would hope GSU would have shuttles from the dorms or typical tailgate areas and not depend on MARTA only as well. The city of ATL really messed things up in that area. It could have been a anchor for the whole area getting better. It did improve slightly over the years but nothing significant. Hopefully they can keep the corruption and under the table payments to a minimum and get it right this time since it will be for a university and there will likely be state and possible federal oversight. 50/50 at best.

I think you dont have a very good idea as to where GSU lies vs Downtown and vs the Ted.
