BeltLine to incorporate Brownfields Studio plans with new land purchases

External News Details

Last week, Invest Atlanta officials agreed to purchase two key pieces of property needed to build the Atlanta Beltline. The first was an approximately four-mile stretch of abandoned rail corridor snaking through southwest Atlanta. By fall or winter, officials could be starting public conversation about the right combination of housing, jobs, and parks on the property. "Once we know what that is, we'll be able to sit down with prospective partners for [building] then we'll convey the property," said ABI CEO Paul Morris. One of the guiding plans for the future of the Murphy Triangle will be a 2012 Georgia Tech School of City and Regional Planning studio on cleaning up brownfields in southwest Atlanta.
