Creating and Preserving Affordability in Southern Buckhead

This nearly three-acre site offers water views of Peachtree Creek and sits close to the intersection of Garson Drive and Piedmont Road, near Lindbergh City Center and Lindbergh MARTA station. It is situated on the future Atlanta BeltLine Northeast Trail and connector trails, with quick access to the growing regional trail network of PATH400, South Fork Confluence Trail, and the Peachtree Creek Greenway. 579 Garson Drive provides for a unique development opportunity for affordable mixed-use development in Southern Buckhead.

As the owner of this land, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. will select a developer who shares its priorities of affordable housing, commercial affordability, and economic development. The intersection of these goals is one of the key tools ABI will use to tackle overall affordability in Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods.

ABI will continue to seek feedback and guidance from community members throughout this process.
