“A joint venture of Columbia Ventures LLC and Studioplex LLC is moving forward with a roughly $25 million project along the Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail extension, which is now under construction.”
“What’s said to be Atlanta’s first fireproof building—the former cotton warehouse turned mixed-use Studioplex—is on fire.”
“The northern fringes of Edgewood look drastically different than a year ago, and in many ways, MARTA is the conductor on this train of development.”
“A city apartment development intended to capitalize on nearby Augusta University will generate “more interest on our side of the tracks” as the fourth node of city redevelopment of the Laney-Walker and Bethlehem communities, a partner with the development firm said.”
“The DeKalb County Chamber of Commerce has named the Avondale MARTA station redevelopment its 2017 Project of the Year.”
“Bridges Ventures has launched the $25 million Bridges UrbanView fund that will invest in U.S. real estate projects that aim to deliver strong financial returns as well as measurable social and environmental impact.”
“In case you hadn’t noticed, MARTA is on a roll”…
MARTA broke ground on the first of six “transit-oriented developments” at its Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA station Monday.
A private developer, Columbia Ventures LLC, is building the $40 million project at no cost to MARTA.
MARTA CEO Keith Parker said Spoke, the $40 million privately funded mixed-use development at the Edgewood/Candler Park station, reflects the system’s reinvention and commitment to better service. Atlanta based development firm Columbia Ventures will lease underused parking lots at the station and develop a mix of 224 apartments, retail, restaurants, a park and a performing arts center.
