Approximately 3,000 acres of underutilized land along the corridor will become available for public and private redevelopment opportunities.
The beauty of the Atlanta Belt Line is that it offers not only modern conveyances and exciting new development, but it is a living, breathing part of our community; not simply a means of getting somewhere, but a destination unto itself.
It will open in phases through the anticipated completion in 2030.
As of 2016, the Atlanta Belt Line consists of four open trails; two trails under construction; seven parks; intensive planning for modern streetcar expansion; more than billion in private economic redevelopment; hundreds of affordable workforce homes; free fitness classes; a linear arboretum; and urban farm; and the largest temporary public art exhibition in the south.
It will ultimately connect 45 intown neighborhoods via a 22-mile loop of multi-use trails, modern streetcar, and parks – all based on railroad corridors that formerly encircled Atlanta.
When completed, it will provide first and last mile connectivity for regional transportation initiatives and put Atlanta on a path to 21st century economic growth and sustainability.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is 11 miles from the property.
