To be clear, the land around the Dunwoody and Sandy Springs stations isn't owned by MARTA.

it has not happened yet, just a lot of talking right now. King Station has the most potential as its already a TOD.

This is how MARTA should have been developed from the jump, much like DC's Metro. It would have resulted in an overall more urban and dense Atlanta, but better late than never. These developments even have the ability to transform neighborhoods seen as rough or less-than-desirable at the moment, like Oakland City and West Lake, especially as in-town neighborhoods near transit become more and more in demand.

There still seems to be some activity with the Oakland City and Lakewood/Ft. McPherson stations redevelopment

||- McPherson Redevelopment -||

This would COMPLETELY change that area. It may even extend new development along Lee St from Avon Ave to Donelly Ave and along the Murphy, Sylvan, Avon triangle (which I remember something not to long ago proposed for that area).

I was unaware of this proposed development; thanks for that info! How far along is the process?

This area is definitely ripe for redevelopment. There are some boarded-up older homes in Oakland City with good bones that could be snatched up for cheap. Maybe I should look into making an investment...

From the website it still appears in the planning stages; probably a few years before the shovels come out. I think it will be great for the area though and even extend up toward the West End. Lee Street from Campbellton to Donnelly could be a very nice urban strip and the Sylvan Rd area from Lee to Dill could be another great dense area of condos and apartments instead of all those old warehouses and junk yards. Plus there are actually some really nice and well kept older homes back there near Adams Park and even out past 285 along the Campbellton corridor. I wish I had the money to build some really large developments because I would focus on areas like this and transform that area completely versus just doing everything on the north side of town.
