The Atlanta Beltline is transforming Atlanta, and this year — the 10th in the 25-year project — it is enjoying its largest year of construction so far, says Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta Beltline Inc.

The Atlanta Beltline will ultimately connect 45 intown neighborhoods with a combination of rail, trails, greenspace, parks, housing, public art and economic development  along a historic 22-mile railroad corridor circling downtown. Pedestrian-friendly rail transit and about 33 miles of multi-use trails will follow along the corridor, and will revitalize struggling Atlanta neighborhoods.

“I like to say we are rebuilding the city from the inside out,” said Morris. “I am honored to be part of a project that will benefit so many neighborhoods by creating jobs, bring in affordable housing, and create new recreation facilities for the community residents. This will eventually create a light that will shine on the communities, Atlanta, and the state as a whole. The goal is to create value and benefit for every community along the Beltline, and become a model for the country.”
