Master Plan Drafts Ready for Review

Currently, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is seeking feedback on the Subarea 6 Master Plan Update. As a reminder, the original Subarea 6 Master Plan was adopted by City Council in December 2011. ABI engaged the assistance of POND, a planning, architecture and engineering to firm update the Subarea 6 Master Plan alongside the Atlanta BeltLine Planning Team.

The boundaries for Subarea 6 planning boundary spans the Atlanta Beltline corridor from where it crosses the railroad bridge over Ponce de Leon Avenue to the tunnel underneath I-85.
