Creative Loafing’s movin’ to Vinings

After 40 years, a venerable alt-weekly opts for a ‘fresh start’


After nearly 40 years covering Atlanta news, culture and restaurants, Creative Loafing is relocating to Vinings.

On April 15, staffers will say adios to the Northyards Complex near Georgia Tech and say “why, hello there” to a former retail space in the Vinings Jubilee shopping center, CL Associate Publisher Edward Leslie told staffers during a special Friday meeting.

“The decision was made to benefit our customers, employees and business,” he said.

The new digs will also enable CL’s team of writers, editors and salespersons to be closer to an area Leslie says is fast becoming metro Atlanta’s cultural center.

With the move will come a new focus on the issues facing Viningians Viningsites Vinings residents. Among them: What’s the real story behind that train that chugs through the middle of the area’s commercial district? (We’ll figure out more stories once we arrive.)

“What a great opportunity,” CL Staff Writer Gwynedd Stuart said in a statement. “I’ll say it again — what a great opportunity.”

CL will continue to focus on Atlanta with in-depth daily traffic reports, movie listings and coupons to the city’s plethora of massage opportunities.
