Why Equitable Development?

Equitable TOD combines people and place-based approaches to ensure that the value created when land near transit is built out is accessible to, and provides opportunities for, all community residents living near transit.

The market near Lenox station is strong and growing and has a low probability of changing demographics. Renters are the first to be affected by an increase in property values in a growing market. This area is near major job centers but lacks affordable housing.

Achieving Equitable Development

In order to retain current residents and provide access to new amenities and services, Transformation Alliance’s equitable development strategy for this station area is:

  • improve job access
  • build new affordable housing
  • develop affordable housing at adjacent MARTA stops to improve access
