A four-day charrette for the redevelopment of the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA station came to a close Oct. 24.
The charrette was a planning and brainstorming session for architects, urban planners, transportation experts, and stakeholders to discuss ways to make “transit-oriented development” at the MARTA station a reality.
Ideas from the charrette include improvements to Peachtree Road, such as a raised median and bike lanes, and improvements to Fernwood Park.
City officials also discussed potential zoning for the MARTA property, which is envisioned as a mixed-use development surrounding the station.
“We all see this to a certain extent as a city center,” said Councilman Jim Eyre.
