Atlanta City Council rejects proposed Walmart development

A rezoning vote for the 22-acre site came up short yesterday


The Atlanta City Council yesterday voted against allowing a proposed development of 22-acre site near the Lindbergh MARTA station in Buckhead that would have included a Walmart.

Both a land use ordinance and companion zoning paper — including changes that would have allowed Walmart to become a part of the mixed-used development — came up for vote in yesterday’s full Council meeting. 11Alive spoke with City Council spokesperson Dexter Chambers, who said that the “rezoning vote came up earlier today and failed, 7-6.”
