In the headlines:

  • French police on Monday detained Uber Technologies Inc.’s top two executives in Paris, French prosecutors said, making good on the government’s promise to crack down on the car-hailing service after violent protests by taxi drivers last week.
  • Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum in Grant Park is history. The venue will close permanently on Tuesday.  The 128-year-old painting will be moved to the Atlanta History Center and is expected to open to the public in early 2017. The painting is the largest oil painting in the world.
  • A General Motors Co. affiliate and Hines will likely put Atlanta Financial Center on the market.  They’re the latest office building owners to test the market in Buckhead, where values are soaring. The partnership paid $154 million for Atlanta Financial Center 15 years ago.  They could get at close to $255 million for the property in the current market.
  • A mid-rise Buckhead office building will become a 345-unit apartment community. Atlanta-based has started demolition on the office building at 1888 Emery Street, near Howell Mill and Collier roads.
  • Celebrity backers and a solid product just aren’t enough to make it in the news business. For further proof, just look to Circa News.  The company, initially funded by Ben Huh of Cheezeburger fame and Tumblr’s David Karp, is, “on hiatus,” founder and CEO Matt Galligan wrote in a Medium post Wednesday. Circa, which had been trying to sell itself since the Spring, ran out of the money it needed to keep going before it could generate enough revenue.
