Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards
Eastside Trail links intown neighborhoods
WINNER – Eastside Trail, Atlanta Beltline
The first finished section of a $2.8 billion redevelopment project that seeks to reshape the way Atlanta grows in the future has won Land Deal of the Year in Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2012 Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards.
Approximately 2.25 miles long, the Eastside Trail is part of the Atlanta Beltline, a network of public parks, multi-use trails, and pedestrian-friendly transit situated along the historic 22-mile railroad corridor circling downtown Atlanta, linking intown neighborhoods and providing an example of sustainable development and an alternative to regional sprawl.
