Edgewood – Candler Park Transit-Oriented Development

Columbia Ventures LLC and MARTA

The Edgewood-Candler Park Transit Oriented Development demonstrates how collaborative planning, bold ideas, and stellar execution can transform a community. This development, which includes a vibrant mixed-use complex, was created out of a former parking lot at the Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA station and is part of MARTA’s ongoing efforts to develop parking lots at its rail stations and reenergize neighborhoods.

Before/after: MARTA parking lots transformed into 350 homes, more

Prior to 2016, approaching MARTA’s Edgewood-Candler Park station from the south meant encountering a sea of weedy asphalt parking lots, where only about one in three parking spaces was being used by transit customers each day.

Vin ATL Wineshop and Tasting Room Slated to Open in Edgewood

Weekly wine tastings, plenty of varietals, and outdoor live music coming soon.

Dwight Cunningham is bringing Vin ATL, a wine shop and tasting room, to Edgewood, at 1454 La France Street, the Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported.

“We do not have a confirmed opening date, as we are waiting for permitting from the city to begin construction,” Cunningham told What Now Atlanta in an email Monday. “Our hope is to open in late spring.” 

Cunningham co-founded the Roswell Wine Festival in 2012. And then in March 2020, he seized the opportunity of having extra time during the pandemic to focus on a business plan for a wine shop.

“We are creating a mid-century modern environment, with seating up to 15 indoors with additional outside seating,” Cunningham said. “In addition, we will have a record player and vinyl for customers to play while shopping or enjoying a flight.”

During Vin ATL’s wine tastings, customers can try flights before purchasing a bottle or two. Each flight consists of three, three-ounce tastes, and there will be six to eight flights available.
