MARTA officials will give a presentation on the Brookhaven/Oglethorpe transit oriented development project on Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. at Brookhaven City Hall.

A presentation will be made and then the development team will be introduced. Questions from the public will be accepted.

The Brookhaven/Oglethorpe station area is about 15 acres. MARTA is seeking to have the area rezoned to allow affordable senior living spaces, condominiums and apartments as part of the mixed-use development. There are also plans for 70,000 square-feet of retail space; 120,000 square-feet of office space; and a 150-room hotel as well as plenty of civic and public space.

A planned park from Peachtree Road to Apple Valley Road could be the heart of the community, with retail on both sides, and there would be programming for the green spaces as well with an emphasis on creating a pedestrian friendly environment.

Council members have discussed relocating Brookhaven City Hall to the site and there is even talk of possibly moving the Brookhaven library here.

Preliminary designs include:


126 senior affordable apartments

580- 560 market rate units

40,000 to 60,000 square feet

120,000 to 400,000 square feet

10,000 to 40,000 square feet


Community Green

Transit Plaza
