Atlanta's Inman Park a model of transforming a former industrial area to a walkable neighborhood

Several projects in and around Inman Park were transformed from industrial use to a mix of walkable residential, retail and office. The area seems to be home to the newest, best restaurants in town and continues to see more and more residents locating there. This is a great example of changing an outdated use to a vibrant, economically-healthy area. Nice article in the AJC.
