Old GM Site to Get the "SmartCode" Treatment

New, 6 comments

In an effort to foster responsible growth around the Doraville MARTA Station, local firm Tunnel-Spangler-Walsh & Associates has been hired by the Atlanta Regional Commssion to craft a "SmartCode" for the underutilized area. Of course, this includes the 165 acres of decaying former industry that is the old GM plant. Various parties have expressed interest in the site, but so far a solid commitment to redevelopment hasn't materialized. Given TSW's impressive track record of creating such guidelines, whoever does step up to the plate should have a quality framework for creating the kind of transit-friendly environment that the metro desperately needs.
