A More Livable Buckhead?

ForLease Atlanta agents enjoy showing our clients around the beautiful areas of Atlanta, which of course always includes the stunning area of Buckhead, Georgia. This historically luxurious area has long been a place sought out by those interested in relocating to the wealthier side of Atlanta. However, one of the disadvantages long associated with this area has been the lack of green space; an interesting issue for an area found within the “City of Trees,” (nickname of Atlanta).

Livable Buckhead, Inc.’ project’s mission, “…strives to ensure the long term vitality and prosperity of the Buckhead community by working cooperatively with individuals, public entities and private businesses to integrate into everyday life and business sustainable strategies that improve the environment and  quality of life in the community.”

One focus of this project is to add green space to Buckhead, which is a very large initiative requiring loads of imagination, ingenuity, and support from the local community. Some of the initiatives for this part of the project includes:

  • Supporting existing parks in Buckhead.
  • Developing new parks of various sizes and functions in the Buckhead area.

Award Winning PATH 400

One of the new parks that has already begun is called PATH 400, recent winner of an E3 award for from the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce for “Moving the Needle” Innovative Greenway Project, Selected for Top Honors in Transportation Category.

What is PATH 400?

As the name suggests, PATH400 is a path that runs along GA 400 who’s first phase was recently opened in January 2015. Once complete, this path will provide a 5.2 mile greenway through the Buckhead area, and connect neighborhoods, office and retail locations. It can be used for pedestrians (walkers/runners), as well as bikers, and has so far been a hit with the local community. Plans for this path are to eventually connect with the Atlanta Beltline in the south and trails in Sandy Springs and north Fulton County. See the full plan pictured below:
