View as Map

Sure, we're merely 1/6th of the way through 2013, but it's never too early to look ahead — and what a future it is for Atlanta! Coincidentally, several transformative projects are expected to open next year. Some have been massively delayed, others are right on track. After the jump, there's a handy map for tracking eight major projects slated to deliver, open, begin operation or be enhanced in booming 2014. Which are you anticipating most?

1. Atlanta BeltLine Corridor

Atlanta BeltLine Corridor
Atlanta, GA 30306

One of the country's premier urban redevelopment projects, the Atlanta Beltline is already transforming the way we think about connectivity in this city. Twenty-two miles of former railroad are being turned into a beautiful necklace of parks, trails, and (hopefully) transit.

2. Atlanta Streetcar

Atlanta, GA 30303

Streetcars last ran on Atlanta streets in 1949, and if all goes as planned they'll be returning next year. The initial route will include Edgewood and Auburn Avenues, connecting the King Center to Centennial Olympic Park.

3. Buckhead Atlanta

Formerly known as Streets of Buckhead, what was once planned as the "Rodeo Drive of the South" has been retooled into a less extravagant mix of apartments, retail and restaurants.

4. Ponce City Market

The ginormous City Hall East building (originally a Sears & Roebuck) is being redeveloped into a signature mix of offices, housing and retail space. Look for it to become a key landmark along the Beltline's Eastside Trail.

5. National Center For Civil and Human Rights

Centennial Olympic Park is gaining another attraction in the form of a 42,000 square-foot, wedge-shaped structure dedicated to the ongoing story of civil rights in America.

6. College Football Hall of Fame

South Bend, Indiana's loss is our gain in the form of a museum dedicated to the popular sport just off of Centennial Olympic Park. Charlotte can have Nascar.

7. Krog Street Market

Tyler Perry's former studios might become a temple to epicurean delights, courtesy of Paces Properties. It's another vote of confidence in the area of Beltline awesomeness.

8. Georgia Proton Treatment Center

The 100,000 square-foot cancer treatment center looks to be the long awaited filler for a giant vacant lot at the crux of North Avenue/Ponce/Peachtree Street.
