Privacy Fence Kit in Candler Park, GA

According to a 2021 study by the International Casual Furnishings Association, nearly 90% of Americans say that having an outdoor space to enjoy as part of their home is more important than ever. In fact, demand for outdoor living spaces has been on the rise for years, due largely to pandemic conditions and the stay-at-home movement. Often, these outdoor living spaces include privacy fences, which provide both home and business owners with protection, privacy, safety, and even noise cancelation.

As a fencing contractor, you probably already know how popular privacy fences have become. You also know that building and maintaining those privacy fences are of utmost importance. After all, craftsmanship still matters these days. Unfortunately, building a gate or decorative fence from the ground up is easier said than done. One wrong mistake or even an incorrect piece of hardware can affect customer satisfaction. With so much on the line, many contractors are now using custom fence pieces and fence kits to serve their clients with high-quality, long-lasting privacy fences.

Saucy rom-com 'The Idea of You' masquerades as California but its locations are pure Georgia

Designers can fill a front yard with desert plants and cover a house in cascading pink Bougainvillea to make Peach State filming locations look like California, but the humid Southern sunshine and lush, leafy breezes are always a giveaway.

That's OK because Georgia has never looked more appealing than it does in The Idea of You, the new Anne Hathaway streamer directed by Michael Showalter, which debuted on Prime Video yesterday after an opening night presentation at the Atlanta Film Festival on April 26.

Atlanta stands in for LA, New York and France in the controversial romp, which sees a forty-something single mom, Solène Marchand (played by Hathaway), fall in love with her daughter's favorite boy-band singer, 24-year-old Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine), in what Silver Screen Capture describes as "pure paperback poolside reading in filmed form."

The filming locations are garnering as much attention as the saucy storyline.

The Idea of You's production designer Amy Williams told House Beautiful magazine that while Solène lounges onscreen in her cozy bungalow in Los Angeles' Silver Lake neighborhood, attends the Coachella music festival and vacations on the French Riviera, the vibe is all Georgia: Solène's house is an Airbnb in Atlanta's Virginia-Highland community, Coachella takes place at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and that vacation rental in France? It's an Atlanta pool house by designer Charlotte Lucas.

Solène also jogs around the Atlanta Waterworks Park off Howell Mill Road and sells her LA gallery wares from a storefront in Candler Park. Downtown Atlanta subs for Manhattan's SoHo, too. And Savannah's beauty is on display during a key scene as the film's couple takes a romantic walk on the city's waterfront.

The Idea of You's stars told Atlanta's Fox 5 that the Coachella scenes left them "freezing" while pretending to be in the desert during the middle of a North Georgia winter, but that the set on the grounds of the speedway "was a magical thing," Hathaway said.

The actress also told the New York Times this month that she is celebrating five years of sobriety and has been spotted around Atlanta in recent weeks while enjoying filming the forthcoming sci-fi movie Flowervale Street.

The Idea of You is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video.

San Francisco Coffee Roasting Company later this year will open a second Georgia Tech coffeeshop, Co-Owner Doug Bond Thursday told What Now Atlanta in a telephone conversation.

Bond said the new Gold and Bold — a name specific to the company’s Tech locations — could open in summer 2023 but will likely be the winter because of construction delays. The coffee shop replaces Nectar in the Engineered Biosystems Building’s (EBB) lobby, at 950 Atlantic Dr NW. San Francisco Coffee Roasting Company’s existing Georgia Tech Gold and Bold is housed on the campus’s Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience Building, better known as the IBB building.

But the Georgia Tech outpost is only the beginning for a planned expansion of the longstanding Atlanta brand. The West Coast-inspired coffee house, which temporarily rebranded itself to Apotheos, is scouting at least four additional locations, according to Bond, who said the company aims to open a total of five locations over the next five years.

“Five is a good number,” Bond said. “But to find five locations that works will be hard. We’re only now expanding because great spaces are opening up and Atlanta has exploded with all the people that have moved here.”

San Francisco Coffee Roasting Company could add locations in neighborhoods like Midtown, Reynoldstown, Summerhill, and Buckhead, joining its OG outpost in Virginia-Highland and two other stores in Candler Park and Georgia Tech. “We have a few [Letters of Intent] out but I can’t tell you where they are,” Bond said. “They’re in town, they’re in great locations.”

In addition to expanding its commercial footprint, Doug alongside Co-Owner Tanya Bond, have also started bottling cold brews, the Bonds told Atlanta Real Estate Forum. “We’re looking to grow this side of the business,” Tanya said. “We’re even on the hunt for a dedicated manufacturing location.”

The Bonds are also looking at launching a drive-thru only concept that would compete with the likes of Dutch Bros with its energy drinks and amped-up coffee beverages. “Someone is going to bring that concept to Atlanta so we would like to be ahead of that,” Bond said.

San Francisco Coffee Roasting Company was founded by the husband-and-wife team in 1992, according to its website. terra alma, a woman-owned boutique real estate advisory firm, will aid the company in identifying spaces for its future locations.

The news comes after months of shakeups regarding festivals held in Atlanta parks.

ATLANTA -- Spring weather typically means a plethora of festivals across metro Atlanta. However, for music lovers, there are less options to choose from.

The Candler Park Music Festival is the latest to announce they will no longer proceed in 2023. They shared the news on their social media channels on Monday.

The intimate festival has been a staple in the Atlanta neighborhood for 11 years.

"We have loved every minute of producing the festival for you and cherish the community of fans, artists, vendors, sponsors and event staff who nurtured our little neighborhood festival into a signature Atlanta event," an Instagram post for the festival read.

Organizers did not specify the exact reasons for its cancelation this year but left a vague statement noting "as we embrace this necessary change, we look forward to what's next, stay tuned - we'll all be together in Candler Park again soon."

It's unclear if that last part means the festival will return in future years or not.

The news comes on the heels of other notable shake-ups to metro Atlanta festivals.

Last fall, Music Midtown in Piedmont Park abruptly canceled its festival, with speculation that it was due to the challenge by gun rights activists to bring weapons into the event. Their argument was that since Music Midtown was held in Piedmont Park, gun-owners should be able to legally carry there, as state law allows them to on government park land should they choose.

A similar cancelation happened with the 404 Festival originally scheduled for last August.

Shortly after, Zoo Atlanta - which is located in Grant Park - changed its rules to allow firearms after a similar threat of legal action.

And earlier this year, SweetWater Brewing scaled back the size of its 420 Fest, moving it from Centennial Olympic Park to its own brewery (which is private property) over "safety concerns."

Candler Park Music Festival has not specified whether the cancelation had to anything to do with the state's gun laws regarding parks.

Prior to 2016, approaching MARTA’s Edgewood-Candler Park station from the south meant encountering a sea of weedy asphalt parking lots, where only about one in three parking spaces was being used by transit customers each day.

Today, it’s a drastically different urban scenario—and quite possibly a preview of things to come throughout sections of Atlanta reached by the heavy rail system.

MARTA on Friday declared the agency’s first transit-oriented development since Lindbergh Center complete, roughly six years after it had broken ground in Edgewood.

Google Maps

Located on the Blue/Green Line in DeKalb County, the $95-million TOD project started with 6.4 acres of parking lots. From that has sprung the following in three phases:

Spoke Apartments arrived with 202 apartments (22 of them reserved as affordable housing) in 2017 as the initial phase.

Josh Green/Urbanize Atlanta

Finished in 2020, the second phase brought a 1/2-acre public park to the center of the development, bordered by an 8,000-square-foot retail and office building. Immediately to the south, Moving in the Spirit also opened a 21,000-square-foot creative youth development center. (Dana Lupton, Moving in the Spirit cofounder and CEO, has said locating the business’ “forever home” close to transit was crucial in its mission to reach more young people.)

The third and final phase, wrapped this year, brought 155 more residential units with the Quill Apartments (53 reserved as affordable housing), plus a 393-space parking deck shared by MARTA customers, retail guests, and apartment tenants. (A new bus loop and MARTA’s replacement parking were supported by a $4.7-million federal grant, which included a 25 percent local match from MARTA, per the transit agency.)

In the park-side retail spaces, neighborhood wine shop and tasting bar Vin ATL opened its doors in one slot in August. Next door, the team behind East Atlanta Village’s Banshee expects to open a sandwich shop and cocktail bar called Bona Fide Deluxe this fall.

Two pieces commissioned by MARTA’s public art program Artbound—The Great Migration by Deedee Morrison and The Unseen by Christina Kwan—were also included in the TOD’s final phase.

Josh Green/Urbanize Atlanta

Collie Greenwood, MARTA’s interim general manager and CEO (and now sole finalist to become permanent CEO), called the Edgewood TOD redo “a perfect example of how developing near transit can transform and enrich a community” in a recent announcement.

In Edgewood, MARTA entered into long-term ground leases with developer Columbia Ventures, which built the mixed-use hub, similar to other TOD partnerships.

Josh Green/Urbanize Atlanta

Edgewood’s completion continues a groundswell of TOD activity along the Blue/Green Lines, where the Marchon mixed-use complex recently opened at King Memorial station and an affordable-housing project is slated to break ground this fall at Avondale Station.

Including recently announced plans for redeveloping Arts Center station in Midtown, MARTA is now planning to convert land around six different stations into denser nodes of development, spanning from Bankhead to Brookhaven and Stone Mountain.

The park stays open until 10 pm, and you’re welcome to reserve a camping spot and stay all night long. Set up your chairs in the small open field near the lake; it has the best views.
