Atlanta Beltline: Present & Future
As one of the largest urban infill projects in the nation, the Atlanta Beltway provides a unique case study that addresses the topic of this conference, how to grow in large, urban areas. Discover how an underutilized railroad corridor which surrounds Atlanta is being converted to Transit-Oriented Development which will provide new multi-modal transit connectivity and provide development opportunities for significant mixed-use increased density. The introduction of a network of public parks, with significant public art, created vibrant people spaces for, not only the new residents and users of the mixed-use infill, but from the surrounding existing neighborhoods.
