Imagine a pleasant, shaded walk from Phipps Plaza, past Lenox Square Mall, to catch the train at the Buckhead MARTA station. It is in the not-too-distant future. Installation of the new, wider sidewalk in front of Phipps is almost complete. It will be set back from the road by a landscaped buffer and lined with shade trees. Granite curbing now lines almost the entire north side of Phase II of the Peachtree Boulevard transformation.
Fiber optic cables and other utilities are also going in, mainly at night to minimize disruptions.
