The Atlanta BeltLine is transforming the city with a combination of rail, trail, greenspace, housing and art. It will ultimately connect 45 in town neighborhoods, provide first and last mile connectivity for regional transportation initiatives, and put Atlanta on a path to 21st century economic growth and sustainability.

The second site, located at 137 White street, is currently a long vacant lot that will be transformed into a small landscaped pocket park with potential art installations. The property, located between a major thoroughfare and the Atlanta Beltline, will serve the purpose of bringing attention to the Beltline entrance through decorative landscaping along with serve a complimentary purpose of providing an open area for community members to take advantage of.
