MARTA CEO Keith Parker said redevelopment of the Memorial Drive corridor has accelerated in recent years. He the development “reflects our commitment to the live/work/play experience and our customers who relish a car-free lifestyle.”
The agency hopes to create similar developments at many of its transit stations, including Avondale, Chamblee and Edgewood/Candler.
Not all has gone smoothly. In February MARTA canceled plans for a $200 million development at its Brookhaven Station after months of disagreement between the city and the developers about its cost and appearance.
