Boasting a WalkScore® of 88 (read ”Very Walkable”), Midtown has been consistently named one of the most walkable and accessible neighborhoods in Atlanta. And this makes sense considering the district’s tight, 120-block street grid that serve tens of thousands of pedestrians daily. To further support this accessibility, Midtown has built-out 15 linear miles of new streetscapes in Midtown since 2000. And we continue to make key investments in sidewalks, curb ramps, and crosswalks throughout the district. Read More »

The night is brisk and lively. You’ve purchased tickets to go see your favorite band, but you’ve arrived a bit too early. Instead of turning around and finding a bar, you make way to the rooftop and enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail. Looking down, you see cars zooming by on Peachtree ST., and when you turn your head to the sky, you see the iconic marquee lights of the Fox Theatre. This my friends, is not a dream, but a reality in the making.
For the first time in nearly 50 years, the rooftop terrace at the Fox Theater will allow access to their patrons. Named after the dazzling lights, the Marquee Club will be the most significant expansion to the theatre since its opening to the public in 1929. Stylized in Moroccan décor, the new space will feature 10,000 square-feet of premier event space, and nearly 4,000 square feet of rooftop terrace.
The Fox Theatre also announced a new exclusive 7-year partnership between the Marquee Club and their long-time sponsor, Lexus.
Slated to open Fall 2017, the Marquee Club will become available to annual membership holders, as well as for ticket upgrades at specific performances.
We are very excited for our neighbors down the street, and we look forward to seeing the Fox’s expansion over the upcoming months!
