The Peachtree Corridor project looks into transforming 16.5 miles of Peachtree Street into a more pedestrian-friendly connecting the north and south linearly through increased development of streetscapes and public transportation infrastructure. This boulevard would move people better, make businesses stronger, draw more residents and give Atlantans a far more enjoyable experience in their city.
Think of the transformation of Peachtree as part streetscape, part streetcar:
The streetscape aspect involves making Atlanta a far more walkable city along Peachtree, with wider sidewalks, new parks, and more inviting public places where people can interact.
The streetcar component calls for bringing to Peachtree the proven success of modern-day streetcars in other major cities, all to help residents and visitors take short trips without the use of cars.
