The City of Atlanta was planning to revitalize blighted parts of the city via the Beltline Project.

One of the earyl supporters of the project has now dropped out.

Money quote:
The tipping point in the dispute came this week when Mason rejected Atlanta's proposal for a land swap that would have resulted in Mason giving up his land and building elsewhere in the city.

I guarantee you that the plan was for well-connected members on the City council to take this land and make tons of money from selling the right to use it.

In Atlanta, greed trumps all.
