Once in a blue moon, a development is proposed that befuddles nearly all who see it.
In 2017, it was the RitaWorld Pearl Kingdom, a bizarre plan to turn the stadium formerly known as Turner Field and its environs into the world’s largest lagoon.
And today, another seemingly outlandish project comes in the form of a casino resort complex proposed by the president of Atlanta Motor Speedway, Ed Clark.
Or could it actually work?
Recently unveiled renderings of a casino-anchored, mixed-use development bordering the speedway might just be louder than a phalanx of twin-turbo engines screaming around a racetrack.
The colorful conceptual drawings of the proposal, sketched by Foxwoods, showcase, among other things, a hotel, condos and possibly timeshare apartments, retail space and restaurants galore, go-karts, a music venue, waterpark, and a theme park that would put Ponce City Market’s rooftop attraction to shame, according to Clayton News Daily.
