ABOUT THE PROJECTS: In 2007, master planning began by looking at the ½ mile on either side of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor to create a framework to support future growth and transit in the corridor. There are 10 distinct subarea masterplans for the Atlanta BeltLine and they are subject to periodic review and adoption by City Council. Updates for Subarea 3 began in late 2017 and will continue in tandem with the design of Boulevard Crossing Park phase II and the Southside Trail.
The first phase of Boulevard Crossing Park opened in 2011 with two large, multiuse activity fields across five acres. Phase II will incorporate the initial five acres into the broader, 25-acre park design. It will also link the park directly to the Southside Trail. Agency Landscape + Planning and Perkins+Will will lead the design and planning process.
The Southside Trail connects the Westside and Eastside Trails at the southernmost part of the Atlanta BeltLine loop. In 2019, the trail will open in interim conditions for public use. Join us to learn about the status of the trail’s interim conditions.
