MARTA Seeking Ideas for Developing Air Rights at Train Stations
MARTA has released details on its plans to develop air rights atop four rail stations—Arts Center, Lenox, Midtown and North Avenue, according to Carla Caldwell.
MARTA's solicitation of "Project Vision Statements" for the four stations confirms reports from June about the transportation agency's plans. According to Caldwell, MARTA's Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) is seeking developers "capable of developing the air rights at these stations into vibrant, visionary mixed-use projects that can be upheld as a national standard for its Transit-Oriented Development program."
