MARTA HOSTS ANNUAL DEVELOPMENT DAY
The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) recently hosted its annual Development Day at the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC).
The event, sponsored by MARTA’s Office of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and Real Estate, featured a legislative update from MARTA Board of Directors Chairman Robert L. Ashe. MARTA General Manager & CEO Jeffrey Parker provided an overview of the More MARTA program and development around Five Points Station.
“The unpreceded amount of new development planned in the area around the Five Points Station will create an opportunity for MARTA to attract new riders as the transportation hub of the downtown business community,” said Parker.
MARTA Sr. Director of Transit Oriented Development and Real Estate Amanda Rhein presented an update on MARTA’s current and future TOD projects and spoke about the importance of this type of development as transit in our region expands and the population grows.
“Real estate developers are key partners for MARTA in the implementation of our TOD program. Development Day provides us with an opportunity to share our progress and discuss future TOD opportunities with the development community,” said Rhein.
Among those who attended the breakfast event were members of MARTA’s Board of Directors, executive management team, and real estate developers.
