MARTA, the transit authority for metro Atlanta, is planning to use its excessive parking and develop under-used parking lots at three stations - King Memorial, Avondale and Edgewood/Candler Park - into mixed-use commercial and residential buildings. With the new projects, MARTA will lease the land—typically for 99 years—to developers planning mixed-use, transit-oriented buildings.

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
Drones are becoming a hot item with the potential to change many industries. Atlanta Hobby in Cumming plans to be on the forefront of the drone revolution. The company sells remote controlled helicopters with a camera attached. Cliff Whitney, president, said, “[People] expect some big predator with cruise missiles hanging off of it. That’s not what we have here.”
 
The drones can be used in the  photography industry, by farmers looking to locate where to add more fertilizer, and real estate agents needing to showcase their property better. CNN is even working with Georgia Tech to study how drones could be used safely and effectively by journalists.

But this time, it's giving back to the community. HMSHost, which have dozens of kiosks and restaurants at the Atlanta airport, donates about a ton of unsold food every week to the Salvation Army. Last year, HMS Host donated in Atlanta 20,000 food items and more than 3 million at airports nationwide. A Salvation Army van goes through security and parks on the tarmac to pick up hundreds of food items every other day.
