Invest Atlanta has selected Columbia Ventures LLC to serve as the developer of MARTA’s transit-oriented development project on five acres surrounding the Edgewood/Candler Park station.
The Atlanta-based company has worked in the neighborhood for a decade, building more than 400 housing units including market-rate and affordable housing.
MARTA’s board of directors has unanimously agreed to begin negotiations with the Decatur Development Authority to revitalize the area around the Avondale station.
The board authorized the negotiations on March 6.
MARTA and DDA have selected Atlanta-based firm Columbia Ventures as the project’s developer. Lyn Menne, Decatur’s Assistant City Manager in charge of Community and Economic Development, said the city recommended Columbia Ventures for the project.
