Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority expanded its Transit Oriented Development portfolio on Wednesday, May 10 with the addition of “Trackside”—a $25 million project located across from the Chamblee MARTA Station. 

“There is a growing need in and around the City of Atlanta for amenities that support transit-friendly lifestyles as well as increase the opportunity for development,” said MARTA GM/CEO Keith Parker. “We are excited to introduce Trackside, which leverages transportation to create a vibrant, walkable and sustainable community.”

The 2.16-acre site, developed by Parkside Partners and Pattillo Industrial Real Estate, will include two buildings with approximately 70,000 square-feet of office space, 10,000 square-feet of retail space and 4,300 square-feet of greenspace. The project is located at the intersection of Peachtree Road and Chamblee Tucker Road and is scheduled for completion in spring 2018. 

“We are excited to partner with Pattillo Industrial Real Estate and MARTA to develop Chamblee’s first Class A office building Trackside, which fulfills our long time belief that Chamblee is not only a great place to live but also to work,” said Kyle Kenks, Principal at Parkside Partners. “MARTA is a huge asset for companies that care about their employee’s lifestyle. More than 300 professionals will work at Trackside, and the direct access to MARTA has been a main factor in the decision making process of our tenants.” 

“We are proud to be underway with the construction of the multi-tenant Transit Oriented Development known as Trackside,” said Larry Callahan, Pattillo Industrial Real estate COO/CFO. “The City of Chamblee, Patillo Industrial Real Estate and MARTA have been part of a great team to get this development going, and we look forward to sharing good news regarding additional office leases soon.”
