With business booming and her staff doubling, Emily Fu looks as though she is living the California Dream. After immigrating from Indonesia 22 years ago, she opened a real estate office that catered to immigrants. Today she also manages Asian Square Mall, and she is proud to proclaim that not one retailer has left in the last five years. But Fu works just north of Atlanta, off a six-mile stretch of highway that runs through the hamlets of Doraville and Chamblee. Twenty years ago, the strip was a red-light district and a nearby General Motors plant was the only substantial enterprise in town.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members. What is your take on the asian community in Atlanta? Is there a significant population of Asian people? I know there is here in Gwinnett. Probably bigger in the Duluth area than any part of the metro area in my opinion.
