MARTA to Convert Parking Lots into Housing

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

MARTA, the transit authority for metro Atlanta, is planning to use its excessive parking and develop under-used parking lots at three stations - King Memorial, Avondale and Edgewood/Candler Park - into mixed-use commercial and residential buildings. With the new projects, MARTA will lease the land—typically for 99 years—to developers planning mixed-use, transit-oriented buildings. They hope to help revitalize both communities and increase the number of people who use public transit.

That’s not what we have here.”

But this time, it's giving back to the community. HMSHost, which have dozens of kiosks and restaurants at the Atlanta airport, donates about a ton of unsold food every week to the Salvation Army. Last year, HMS Host donated in Atlanta 20,000 food items and more than 3 million at airports nationwide. A Salvation Army van goes through security and parks on the tarmac to pick up hundreds of food items every other day.
