City of Atlanta Seeks Developer for Project Adjacent to MARTA’s Garnett Station

Invest Atlanta, in partnership with the City of Atlanta, has issued an RFP for the redevelopment of one acre of City of Atlanta-controlled property on Forsyth Street SW adjacent to MARTA’s Garnett Station in Downtown Atlanta.

The Garnett Transit Oriented Development RFP seeks a development partner for a project centered on creative public spaces and mixed-income housing that activates two underutilized city-controlled properties.

Objectives for the redevelopment of the Garnett Transit Oriented Development include:

*Housing Affordability – increasing the affordable rental housing supply and providing greater access to housing at all levels of affordability.

*Transit and Pedestrian Accessibility – improving pedestrian connectivity by introducing new pedestrian infrastructure connecting Forsyth Street to the Broad Street Plaza and Garnett Street MARTA station.

*Public Space – improving, creating, and activating public space at and around the station that promotes safe pedestrian activity with a mix of residential and commercial uses.

*Mixed Use – ensuring that development fosters a sustainable commercial and community-oriented environment that serves both residents and the Downtown community.

The two underutilized properties described in the RFP include a surface parking lot located at 184 Forsyth Street and a city-controlled right-of-way formerly used as a pedestrian plaza.

Responses are due March 31, 2023.
