ABOUT THE PROJECT: ABI completed its largest real estate transaction to date in support of affordable housing and economic development purposes with the acquisition of a 31+ acre site located at 425 Chappell Road in April of 2021. Similar to other sites owned by ABI, extensive community engagement will be conducted to incorporate the desires and vision of adjacent residents and local businesses, culminating in a Request for Proposals to invite developers to submit proposals to redevelop the site.
425 Chappell Road is located approximately a half-mile from the Bankhead MARTA station. It sits near a segment of the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail in design, south of both Maddox Park and Westside Park, with potential to extend the Proctor Creek Trail from the Westside Park to Washington Park through the Chappell Road site, and possibilities for regional transit and trail connectivity.
Meeting materials and opportunities for public feedback will be made available on the day of the meeting at beltline.org/meetings.
