03 Feb Downtown Chamblee expects big year as 5 projects break ground or deliver
MARTA-linked ITP city foresees varied developments, multi-use trail creating more cohesive urban core
Chamblee leaders expect the north ITP city to take major steps toward swapping its industrial past for a more people-focused, cohesively urban feel in 2022.
In terms of construction cranes and demo jobs, the growing city of roughly 31,000 could look like a miniature version of Midtown soon.
Rob Smith, Chamblee’s Downtown Development Authority chairman, recently briefed Urbanize Atlanta on the status of five projects—each underway or with groundbreakings on the horizon this quarter—considered vital to a broader Town Center vision. Having tripled its population since 2010 (thanks in part to annexation), Chamblee swore in its first LGBTQ mayor last month, Brian Mock, along with other fresh faces on the city council.
