MARTA will host two public meetings to gather community input on the future of Bankhead Station.

This community-driven master plan will incorporate transit-oriented development (TOD), safer access, routes and connectivity to Bankhead Station and its surrounding area, according to a press release from the transit agency.

An in-person meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m., and a virtual meeting for Thursday, April 13 at 6:30 p.m.

Last fall, the MARTA Board of Directors selected the Peebles Corporation for a TOD project adjacent to Bankhead Station that includes 495 apartments, a hotel, and retail and office space.

Since then, Microsoft pulled the plug on its nearby 90-acre campus, which was fueling growth in the Westside area.

MARTA still plans to extend Bankhead’s platform, which will also include a new canopy, elevators, escalators, and creating a community plaza.
