Atlanta has a rich history dating back before the Civil War, and it has undergone many changes in that time. Neighborhoods all around the city have blossomed, matured, and evolved, and together they have woven a patchwork dynamic that reflects the many different evolutions of the city.
Some neighborhoods have continued to prosper with time, while others have fallen into disrepair. New development, new roads, and new realities have altered some neighborhoods, while others have remained virtually unchanged for decades. Obstacles, both natural and manmade, have created barriers separating many of these neighborhoods, and the result is a curious hodgepodge lacking a common thread — until now.
The Atlanta BeltLine is changing the core dynamic of our city, bringing all of these disparate neighborhoods together under one vision that will transform these separate entities into one cohesive community, while still maintaining the individual character of each. The Atlanta BeltLine offers an opportunity to bridge gaps (literal and figurative), and unite the City of Atlanta in a way never before possible.
