MARTA Releases Request for Proposals for Edgewood/Candler Park TOD

— From a March 3, 2014 MARTA email blast —

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (“MARTA”) is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for the Edgewood/Candler Park Station Transit-Oriented Development (“TOD”). MARTA has partnered with Invest Atlanta, the City’s economic development agency, to identify a team to develop a 5-acre parcel adjacent to the Edgewood/Candler Park Station on the Blue Line.

This well-located property is three stops from Downtown and within walking distance of the Edgewood Retail Shopping Center to the west, the Schwan’s Bakery to the east, with the surrounding community primarily consisting of residential uses.

Successful proposals will advance MARTA’s overarching strategic TOD goals, which include:

  • To generate greater transit ridership – a natural consequence of clustering mixed-use development around stations and along corridors;
  • To promote a sustainable, affordable and growing future for the people of Metro Atlanta; and
  • To generate a return on MARTA’s transit investment – through enhanced passenger revenues, greater federal support, and development on MARTA property.

A copy of the RFP can be downloaded from the Invest Atlanta website at: http://www.investatlanta.com/opportunities/rfp/edgewood-candler-park-station-rfp/

Proposals are due to Invest Atlanta by April 28, 2014. Inquiries regarding this opportunity should be directed to:
Alan Ferguson, Sr.
Neighborhood Revitalization Manager
Invest Atlanta
