Not bad but hardly the best view.
What's better ?
Top level of the King Memorial MARTA station has a similar but more expansive view from a different angle (as does riding the train between 5 Pts & Inman park).
Riding the MARTA train north just below Garnett station as it rounds a curve is also a nice skyshot.
Even better, the East side beltline just above Ponce De Leon, behind Paris-on-Ponce Market.
There one can see the full expanse of metro ATL from the 'scrapers around Woodruff Park all the way up into Buckhead.
Can we change our votes now that they have fired EVH???
Congratulations, Terry! Totally deserved!
Details for the walk on Saturday the 12th of October.
or if you don't have a Facebook account.
SW BeltLine walk of the Tiger V funded section with the added bonus of Ciderfest happening in my backyard after the walk.
As most of you have heard, the BeltLine received 18 million dollars from the Feds this summer that the city plans on matching for a total of 43 million dollars to build out the West side trail of the BeltLine from Washington Park on the west side 3 miles south to Adair Park on the south side of the city.
I would like to invite you to come out for a walk of this section of the BeltLine with me on October 12th 2013, a Saturday morning, from 10am to 1pm. The full walk is only about 4 miles long from the Ashby Marta Station to the West End Marta station.
A link to the section we'll be walking.
Here are a few post about this section of the BeltLine from Feb 2010.
Ciderfest will be happening in my back yard right after the walk so please feel free to stick around for that.
There is also a meeting coming up on the 3rd of October about the Tiger V grant and construction of this section of the BeltLine. Here are the details.
Citywide Conversation – TIGER V
October 3, 2013 – 6-8 p.m.

Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. was awarded TIGER V funding for 2.5 miles of shared use trails, trailheads and access points, and preservation of future streetcar transit corridor in southwest Atlanta. The Southwest Trail will have a significant impact on surrounding neighborhoods as the corridor stitches together emerging economic nodes. The TIGER V grant award, along with federal and local support, provides the funding to start construction by the fall of 2014. This represents a two to three year acceleration of this portion of trail construction.
See you on the BeltLine.
Having met and spent time with Crimson Fist, I can say without a doubt that he's truly one of the good guys. Castleberry Hill is very fortunate to have him around!
Derek, are you a Fuqua shill or just a meathead?
"...the simple fact that they are seeking to build it suggests there is a demand for their services and, hence, many people do like it."
I hereby nominate you for the Nobel Prize in Logic, Derek. Local residents don't have "financial stake" or real, relevant reasons to oppose" the development going on in their backyard? You've obviously done your homework on this issue, so tell us how it is.
The artwork on the tunnel (see above photo) was designed and painted by Hadley Breckenridge, adjunct professor at Clark University Atlanta and a third year participating artist in The AtlantaBeltine project. The bold design and intensity of color both inside and out of the tunnel is visually stimulating.
Breckenridge also designed and painted two murals near this site that are equally stunning.
(Thanks to the neighbors in the area, friends and family who volunteered their time.)
These are must see works of art! Enjoy!
If anyone wants to see the piece of art work on this picture checkout Westview, the neighborhood where it is located: http://www.westviewatlanta.com/
What are they relevant complaints? I suspect that the property in question is privately held so there should be very strong reasons to interfere with these private property rights. Perhaps some people do not like this development, but the simple fact that they are seeking to build it suggests there is a demand for their services and, hence, many people do like it. Too often these fights come down to personal preference of local residents who do not have a financial stake and who do not have real, relevant reasons to oppose an initiative beyond NIMBY.
And while Ati is great, he's the backup right now. Joe Nasco is pretty amazing too!
Put in on your calendars, I'll be leading a hike on this section of trail on Saturday, the 12th of October, from the Ashby Marta Station to the West End Marta Station from 10am to 1pm. I'll be sharing the design plans that are in the works for the BeltLine SW trail that should start construction within the next year. There will also be the Ciderfest event that Concrete Jungle holds every year happening in my backyard that day. See you on the BeltLine.
