Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority

Atlanta has long pursued transit-oriented development (TOD) as part of its mass transit rail system development. One of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority’s (MARTA) four current TOD projects is the Edgewood/Candler Park Station TOD, which is transforming a 6.4 acre underutilized surface parking lot into a mixed-use development that includes 224 apartments (20 percent of which will be affordable), cultural space, street-level commercial units, and a small park.  The first phase of the project, the apartment complex, should be complete in early 2018. To support small, minority and women-owned companies, MARTA has a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program, which aims to award at least 30 percent of its contracts to DBE firms.
