Subarea 1 starts in Atlanta’s historic West End at the intersection of I-20 and Langhorn Street where the corridor passes under the highway. From I-20, the Atlanta BeltLine runs south to the west of Muse Street, passes underneath Ralph David Abernathy at the intersections of Cascade and White Street (by the Kroger City Center), and along White Street all the way to Lee Street. A section of the West End trail has already been built and is used daily by residents.

This portion of the Atlanta BeltLine is home to the West End and Westview neighborhoods and features Gordon White Park, Enota Park, Rose Circle Park, Westview Cemetery, the Atlanta BeltLine’s first painted outdoor mural, and some of the first stretches of the BeltLine Arboretum to be planted. Public transportation is accessible at the West End MARTA station.

ABOUT URBAN EXPLORERS

ATLANTA BELTLINE MASTER PLAN

For planning purposes, the Atlanta BeltLine is divided into 10 separate subareas. Each of these areas has undergone an extensive planning process where all considerations for various land uses are mapped out. These maps illustrate these plans, and they include designs for green space, residential and commercial development, transit, and other components. In addition, a map of the tax allocation district shows the impact area for the TAD, created in 2005 to help fund the Atlanta BeltLine project.
