Unveiling the Most Impactful Development Projects in Atlanta, Georgia

The latest round of funding from LCI has opened the door to 17 projects that will revolutionize spaces in the region. From Bells Ferry Corridor to Downtown Winder, these projects will bring a new level of connectivity and safety to the area. Bells Ferry Corridor is a major transportation artery connecting Marietta and Canton. The project will not only enhance the flow of traffic but also create a secure space for pedestrians and cyclists.

A 14-foot wide multi-purpose trail will be constructed, providing ample room for families to accompany their children to nearby Peachtree Elementary School and for employees to walk or bike to their offices. North Shallowford Road, located between I-285 and 141, links Dunwoody neighborhoods with shops and services. However, the infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists is limited. To improve connectivity, the project will expand the pedestrian and cycling infrastructure along North Shallowford Road and reduce traffic to two lanes to create space for a wider path for walking and biking.

More than 100 new trees will be planted in the area to provide additional protection for those who enjoy the trail and, at the same time, to purify the air and beautify the community. The Doraville Station project will build wide, multi-purpose trails along the streets that lead to Doraville station to improve access for pedestrians and cyclists. This project will add sidewalks throughout the area to improve walkability and access to community services and green spaces. The Forest Park project will add a bridge over Forest Parkway, in addition to a wide brick sidewalk over the railroad tracks. This will make it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to transition safely and smoothly from street to trail.

The Silver Comet Connector project will expand the trail along Jackson Way and add access points in Powder Spring, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to transition safely and smoothly from street to trail. This will make it easier for more community members to take advantage of the trail. The SoNo neighborhood has experienced a wave of new investment interest in projects large and small. The Atlanta Housing Authority is exploring public-private partnerships to offer mixed-use development on site. These projects are part of a larger effort by the city of Atlanta to become the best possible version of itself. By improving connectivity, safety, walkability, access to community services, green spaces, and more, these projects are sure to have a lasting impact on Atlanta's future.
