Social media fuels Tech study of Memorial Drive to super speed

External News Details

Social media is enabling the Georgia Tech analysis of Memorial Drive to proceed at a startling rate of speed. The Leopard condo building is rising on the former site of the dive-bar Lenny’s. It’s one of 24 projects Georgia Tech students have identified along Memorial Drive. As various findings appear on a Facebook page and are shared via other social media, interested parties are providing feedback to the Tech students in almost real time. Portions of a report presented Oct. 27 are already substantially out of date, Tech professor of practice Mike Dobbins said Tuesday. The result is that the final report is likely to be much more comprehensive than originally anticipated. It’s due for release in early December and could become the basis of a potential city plan to guide the redevelopment of the Memorial Drive corridor from near the state Capitol east toward Decatur.
