New Midtown 'Concierge' will Help Atlantans Ditch Cars

New, 5 comments



Officials with North American Properties, the developer behind Avalon and Atlantic Station's transformation, point to several statistics about the intersection of 14th and Peachtree streets as proof that it's emblematic of Atlanta's walkability aspirations: The intersection has a Walk Score of 84, Bike Score of 76, and the highest pedestrian count in Atlanta outside of Georgia Tech's campus. As such, NAP is launching a new concept — a full-time "Mobility Concierge" — at their latest purchase, the O.G. mixed-use goliath Colony Square. This concierge will work with Colony Square tenants, guests and anyone else loafing around Midtown to "identify customized transportation and mobility solutions and incentivize their use," officials said. NAP will also install several TransitScreens that provide real-time transportation options that could further encourage the use of mobility alternatives. "We are a nexus of bike lanes, streets, sidewalks and transit," Mark Toro, NAP managing partner, said in a release. "On any given day, you are bound to see several Ubers waiting in Colony Square's roundabout. The Mobility Concierge will readily help the community utilize these transportation alternatives in order to make Midtown a more mobile community and give our tenants, guests and residents a better quality of life."
