Project readies for construction with 2.5 million in land development.
The permitting process is underway for the the major redevelopment at part of the Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA station.
MARTA will spend an estimated $2,450,000 on land development at 1471 La France Street NE in the Edgewood neighborhood, according to plans filed with the City of Atlanta this week. The land development will ready the area for construction of a new mixed-use development by Columbia Ventures.
The transit oriented development (TOD) is a joint venture by MARTA and Invest Atlanta that will utilize 6.4 acres currently part of the MARTA station. Most of the space will convert underutilized parking lots on the south side of the station.
Groundbreaking is slated for early 2016 with Phase I planning to be completed by late 2017, according to courbanize.com.
The first phase of the project will feature apartments, green space, and street-level retail.
