North Line Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Study Executive Summary

The resulting North Line Transit Oriented Development Study is intended to promote transit supportive development patterns along the Georgia State Route 400 (GA 400) corridor. The study examined seven cluster areas (referred to as TOD clusters) along the corridor considered to have strong potential to develop as a regional draw with a focus on density, diversity, and design of future land uses at these locations. The North Line TOD Study offered a new opportunity to examine transit expansion feasibility in the GA 400 corridor through the possible implementation of new development patterns. The study was coordinated with and modeled after the Atlanta Regional Commission’s (ARC) Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) program, under MARTA sponsorship, to enhance the potential for acceptance as a future LCI community under ARC’s program.
