of the 1200 how many do you think are indigent? Based on MARTA percentages probably quite a few?

Developers aren't building anything specifically for those people.

The area is being revitalized for many reasons (GSU a big one), but it ain't those folks on those mostly empty streetcars.

Businesses & developers want to be near transit. Bus routes are unreliable and can change on a whim, but they know the streetcar is here to stay and the start of a much larger system. Of course this 1.5 mile start line is not going to bring many people today but these buildings will be around for decades and being on this route is a great long-term investment for them.

Reality is, transit is a key driver of development & business relocation. Amazon's HQ2 won't be coming to a bus route in Cobb, but it very likely will end up along a street car / light rail line in Atlanta or somewhere else in this country.

Their existing HQ is already on a streetcar route.

Progress made on parking lot along streetcar route.
Quote:
Plans call for the five-story brick building to house 92 apartments, parking, and 4,000 square feet of retail space along the street. The $9 million project would rise at the corner of Piedmont and Auburn avenues, next to the Apex Museum and across the street from the annoyingly abandoned Atlanta Life Insurance Company building.

Excellent! Replacing parking with housing and commercial mixed-use. All while being at the intersection of the existing streetcar, and the future MARTA BRT route.

7-unit co-living space to open along Streetcar line at 340 Auburn Ave NE.
Quote:
Awethu House, named after an anti-apartheid rallying cry that translates to “Power to the People,” will feature seven sleek residential spaces with ensuite bathrooms and kitchenettes. While the units may be small, there is plenty of communal gathering space to foster interaction among residents

Two of the rooms will be dedicated to moderate-income members at a slightly lower cost than market rent, and two will be rented out on Airbnb, leaving three as market rate options.
Quote:
Rather than being rented, each suite will be made available through membership to The Guild, which will include access to shared desks in a small coworking space on the ground floor of the building run by Remerge.
Quote:
Rent for each unit will be $1,200 per month, inclusive of utilities, internet, parking, and the chance to attend events such as lectures, community dinners, and social justice tours at Remerge. The two units designated for those who fall between 60 and 80 percent of the area median income will be $975 per month.
