MARTA looking for developer for Avondale Station
MARTA and the city of Decatur want a developer to help them transform the area around the Avondale rail station, according to Progressiverailroading.com.
Applications are due by Sept. 19.
The redevelopment would transform seven acres around the station into a “transit-oriented development.”
According to Progressiverailroading, “The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has been involved with TOD since the late 1990s, when BellSouth Corp. — now part of AT&T — constructed a 1 million-square-foot office building that incorporated an entrance to MARTA’s adjacent Lindbergh Center.”
