Southside Trail & Reynoldstown Stage Update
posted in Atlanta BeltLine News, Southside Trail // 05/01/17

On Monday, April 24, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. came out to the southeast and southwest study groups to provide updates on the Reynoldstown Stage and the Southside Trail design.

The Reynoldstown Stage will be a performance area on the second phase of the Eastside Trail’s southern extension, just north of Memorial Drive. The area, which is currently an unpaved interim hiking trail in Reynoldstown, hosts Art on the Atlanta BeltLine performances each fall. The stage, whose design is being led by Tristan al-Haddad with funding from the National Endowment of the Arts, will function as a permanent space for performances and events on the Eastside Trail. Full design drawings for the stage will be ready this summer.

As the Atlanta BeltLine grows, more opportunities for public cultural spaces will become available, enhancing and reflecting the diverse characteristics of the neighborhoods touched by the 22-mile corridor.

The public meeting also included an update about Southside Trail design, which is advancing after extensive community engagement. The Southside Trail is a 4-mile corridor connecting the Westside Trail at University Avenue to the Eastside Trail at Memorial Drive. The update focused on several key areas of Southside Trail design, including the crossing at I-75/85, the Annie E. Casey site, and the vertical connection at Confederate Avenue. The high-level design drawings, which are available for review in the presentation here, show possible trail alignment, stormwater infrastructure, access points, and future transit. Artistic renderings show the possibilities for welcoming public spaces that feature public art and design elements.

Bear in mind that these are concept designs and not concrete (pun intended!). Watch for more updates as the design process continues and more details become available.
