The Atlanta city council voted down Monday the development project that would have brought a mixed-use development to Lindbergh Drive near the MARTA station.
Proposed plans include 200,000 square feet of retail space for a Walmart and roughly 200 apartments.
Developer Jeff Fuqua has been working to get the $80 million project off the ground for nearly two years, but opposition has been fierce from the neighborhood.
Many residents pushed against the development due to traffic concerns. Others voiced concerns for more affordable housing in the area.
Not everyone was opposed to the project. Some residents felt the development would have brought new jobs and resources to the area.
