The transformation of PITTSBURGH YARDS™, a multi-faceted development project, is an unprecedented opportunity to spur a more equitable distribution of income, wealth, jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities for residents in Neighborhood Planning Unit V and other southwest Atlanta neighborhoods.
Located near many of the city's major redevelopment projects, including the Atlanta BeltLine, the former Turner Field and State Farmers Market, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Fort McPherson, this 31-acre site is part of an area that is in the midst of significant - and promising - transition.
Once complete, the hope is that Pittsburgh Yards™ will be a vibrant space where residents can work, create, shop, and play.
Catalyze living-wage employment, long-term career and entrepreneurship opportunities for local residents, including parents with young children, young adults and those in need of second chances.
Use design, streetscape, and landscaping techniques to encourage community engagement and innovation.
Incorporate sustainable design principles and best practices for energy and water efficiency.
Cultivate local benefits, such as access to the Atlanta BeltLine, healthy foods, green space, community gathering space, and arts and culture.
