If you’re a regular reader of this blog (if not, you’ve wasted your life) then you know we’re big believers in the value of SouthWest Atlanta. It’s close to downtown and many of the neighborhoods have a great inventory of Craftsman Bungalows. And it’s super cheap over there. Now comes news that the SW portion of the Beltline is beginning construction and should be completed next year. This is due to an $18 million dollar Tiger V grant. It’s a huge positive development for this area because there aren’t the types of businesses in the area that can help with private money like the Eastside Trail. You can read all the details here at the Beltline site.
UPDATE: More good news is that this grant will allow the Beltline to go ahead and be completed all the way to University Avenue!
UPDATE 2: Well gentle reader, Nicole Knox who works in media relations for the Beltline reached out to us to let us know we had erred in our writing. We said the SW section would be completed in one year but the actual completion time is expected to be 3 years. HomesInAtlanta thanks the Beltline for the information and thanks for all the great work you guys are doing.
