Protecting Atlanta's Beltline

Did the city of Atlanta make a mistake by letting a deal with a mega-developer fall apart or did it have no choice?

"It's been three weeks since the mega-developers who proposed two condo towers overlooking Piedmont Park decided to walk away from the deal, throwing a serious wrench in Atlanta's ambition to build a loop of transit and trails circling the city.

Did the Beltline negotiations actually fall apart because the city screwed up? Or did the city have no choice but to turn the Masons down?"
