Atlanta Library Reopens

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
 
At 106 years old, the library closed down on January for a three-month restoration project costing $150,000. The funding came through a referendum passed by local taxpayers in April of last year. The project's focus was to restore the facility, as closely as possible, to its original condition.
 
Though the library has been open since Monday, you can look forward to its grand opening on Memorial Day.

AT&T Eyes Atlanta for High Speed Internet Service

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
With Google Fiber looming over the horizon, AT&T is considering providing high speed Internet in 21 new major metropolitan areas, including Atlanta.
 
According to AT&T, such a service will deliver broadband speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second to consumers and businesses, which is 100 times faster than your basic run-of-the-mill broadband connection.
 
No word yet as to when Atlanta might get the gigabit service or how much it would cost. Should it come to fruition, the service would only be available to U-verse TV subscribers.

Eventbrite came up with a list of "America's Most Carpe Diem Cities," which details places where people like to go out there, live life, and have fun, and Atlanta made it in at #1. It has the most number of event-going people relative to its population.

Atlanta
Washington, D.C.

"Hollywood of the South"...Not too Shabby, Atlanta!

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
 
When green screens and giant film sets just won’t cut it, you film on location–and Atlanta is starting to become a Mecca for this kind of activity here in the South. The 2002 legislation passed by the State of Georgia that granted tax incentives to the film industry certainly helped set the stage.

The 80s were when Little Darlings and Driving Miss Daisy put the city firmly on screen, if only just for a while. Fast forward to the present day and you see Fast & Furious 7The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, and Term Life setting up shop here. Heck, even TV wants a piece of the pie with Halt and Catch Fire making its presence known.
 
Cue increased sightings of many famous people.
