Three years after no one offered to buy the old Atlanta Farmers Market, in southwest Atlanta, the Atlanta BeltLine is seeking a full analysis of what will be necessary to kindle redevelopment of the market parcel and adjacent neighborhoods.
The Georgia Building Authority put the 16.4-acre site on the auction block in 2012. No bids were submitted, and the State Properties Commission withdrew the property.
The BeltLine subsequently acquired the property. It’s located in an area named Murphy Crossing, at the intersection of Murphy Avenue and the Westside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine.
Now the BeltLine has issued a request for proposals for what it calls a, “jobs related economic feasibility study.”
Proposals are due by 3:00pm November 13, 2015.
