If that parking lot was so underutilized then why are the streets near the south lot on La France now over crowded with cars trying to park near Marta? You could at least reopen the part of the parking... Read more...

I also want to know when the fenced-off parking lot will reopen. Please advise MARTA.

Edgewood/Candler Park Station TOD idea

When is the actual project going to happen? I've lived on La France for a year and the apartment bldg has been done for about 4 months and there is no contruction going on, just an ugly blue fence around... Read more...

The existing La France Street curb that follows the construction fence is not permanent. Sometime in the 1st Quarter 2018, the temporary curb will be removed and the permanent curb as well as finished... Read more...

Will stormwater planters be a part of the sidewalks and/or bulb outs?

Yes, the 4 inch drop-off running right down the middle of the single westbound lane of La France, which was "fixed this week," causes issues.<br>I am certain this is the cause of my Volvo being total loss... Read more...

The project includes a 1/2 acre park. What would inspire you to spend time there?

I’d like to understand why the large trees that line La France at the south edge of the Marta parking lot are tagged for removal. Are there going to be new trees planted to replace these? Edgewood is losing... Read more...

I would love an update about the current status of phase 2 and future phases. Our kids are very excited about a park next door, and we'd love to see it open as soon as possible.

Open space idea

benches, chess/checker tables, a simple playground for kids would be great!

Edgewood/Candler Park Station TOD idea

I live on La France, I don’t have parking at my house, and have parked on the street in front of my house for 13 years. Since you have closed off half of the parking spaces- I can no longer park at... Read more...

Edgewood/Candler Park Station TOD idea

Something should be done about parking for people riding Marta on a daily basis. Being a person who lives in the immediate area, this has been an issue of late with all of the construction. Our neighborhood... Read more...

Open space idea

Cornhole, volleyball net, benches, lights at night, food truck :)

Edgewood/Candler Park Station TOD idea

Question- I live on La France, and since the construction of the apts and Marta, I can’t park in front of my house due to overflow of the Marta parking. Who can I reach out to, to get permitted parking... Read more...

Open space idea

When is Phase II going to start? I inquired a while ago and was told it be last quarter of 2018, which is soon. Is this actually going to happen? The "park" next to the Spoke apartments is a and eye... Read more...

Edgewood/Candler Park Station TOD idea

Yes, when is construction starting on this project. It has now been sitting empty for many, many months.

Open space idea

Following up on the status of Phase II of this project. I was told it would start back up about now and have not seen any activity over here since the apartment complex went up. As I mentioned before,... Read more...

Open space idea

The "park" looks awful right now. There is a big dip in the property which causes it to collect water and it looks horrible. Also, when is the actually "community center" project going to begin? There... Read more...

The Edgewood/Candler Park TOD project is being completed in multiple phases. The apartment building was completed in May. The next phase to start construction will include the greenspace, commercial building... Read more...

Thank you so much for the update. Rumor has it the current Marta parking lot on La France Street is going to become a parking deck, is that true? I live directly across from that parking lot now and... Read more...

The Edgewood/Candler Park TOD project will ultimately encompass the entire south lot at the station. The existing surface parking lot will be redeveloped during the final phase of development and will... Read more...

Thank you again for getting back with me so quickly. Just worried about an ugly parking deck right outside my house.

The parking deck will be wrapped with an active use, like residential.
