Creative Loafing “Best of Atlanta” – Best Real Estate Developer – 2004

2004 Creative Loafing "Best of Atlanta"

Is this a joke? After all, developers give us sprawl, traffic and corrupt land-use schemes cooked up with their crony politicians. But Atlanta does have several real estate good guys, CHARLES BREWER chief among them. Brewer is using the fortune he earned after founding MindSpring to build a 28-acre development sandwiched between Grant Park and East Atlanta. Unlike the typical cookie-cutter subdivision, Glenwood Park will be a mixed-income, mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly community -- a beacon for new urbanism movement, complete with a storm water retention pond and energy-saving homes.

Corner of Glenwood Avenue and the Glenwood-Moreland Connector. 404-622-5144.
