ATL Beltline

This project could majorly change the face of urban Atlanta. Check it out. It's pretty boss. It also shows that graduate students sometimes have un-jaded, innovative, and optimisitic ideas that improve cities, companies, and things.

The Atlanta Beltline is a proposal to transform a 23-mile loop of underutilized rail corridor around downtown Atlanta into an integrated linear open space and transit system. Georgia Tech student Ryan Gravel originally conceived the idea for a transit loop in his master's thesis in 1999. Frustrated with the lack of transportation alternatives in Atlanta, Gravel and two of his colleagues, Mark Arnold and Sarah Edgens, summarized his thesis in 2000 and mailed copies to two dozen influential Atlantans. Using existing rail tracks, it aims to improve not only transportation, but to add green space and promote redevelopment.
