Where is Buckhead Heading?
This is a Saporta Report Thought Leadership piece by Jim Durrett, executive director – Buckhead CID
Last week I attended the launch party for HUB404, which will be the nation’s first Transit-Oriented Park with nine acres of elevated green space that connects to MARTA’s Buckhead station. As I looked out from the 11th floor of the Atlanta Financial Center at the space that will transform our community into a more walkable urban center, it was a reminder to me of the exciting years ahead for Buckhead.
More than 15 years ago, the Buckhead Action Plan helped forge the development of our community into what it is today – one of the epicenters of commerce in Atlanta – with a daytime population of more than 140,000 people, new neighborhood parks and numerous multi-modal transportation corridors, including PATH400, which will connect to the BeltLine.
