No On TSPLOST TIA: Buckhead

As my other post points out, proponents of TSPLOST claim that more the new funding will help bring businesses to the area. But wait, I work in Buckhead…

  • Has 2 MARTA Lines going through It
    Effectively  connects Gwinnett (85), Alpharetta (400), East Atlanta (20), and South Atlanta (75/85)
  • Has a Luxury intracommunity shuttle (the Buc)
    Stops at the major office buildings, mall, condos, and connects the two lines.
  • Only has only 60% Occupancy

I actually work at a building connected TO LENOX STATION, it is about 70% empty. Employees at my company ride MARTA from Midtown, Lindbergh, Atlantic Station, Decatur, Alpharetta, and Peachtree City.  Beyond that, there are also 2 unimproved lots right next to my building. Not to mention mini malls and other one story buildings.

If companies care so much about transportation, why isn’t Buckhead at 100% occupancy?
