TSW Planning Studio has been busy working on the Downtown South MARTA Stations Makeover Update – Over the past two weeks, TSW and a team of subconsultants have been actively gathering ideas and feedback from various stakeholders about the Downtown South MARTA Stations Makeover project, which aims to revitalize the Five Points and Garnett MARTA Stations both located in Atlanta Georgia. The project is sponsored by Central Atlanta Progress, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, and the ARC.
TSW and their team have been focusing on gathering input from key groups such as MARTA riders, downtown residents, nearby employees, and GSU students to ensure that the final plans align with the needs of the community. Gathering input from these groups is critical to ensure that the project meets the needs of the various stakeholders who will be using the stations.
The project is focused on revitalizing the Five Points and Garnett MARTA Stations in order to create more welcoming, attractive, and functional spaces. The revitalization efforts will include new design features, signage, lighting, and other amenities to improve the overall experience for riders and visitors.
