Experience It- A Guide to the BeltLine

Dec 2, 2020

As it is commonly referred to as “the melting pot,” Atlanta embodies a deeply diversified culture and historically rich environment. In a city that varies in vibrancy, it is easy to feel disconnected from the communities around you. But, fortunately for 550 N Highland residents and the Poncey-Highland’s populace, the BeltLine has served as the glue that keeps our cultures connected. 

The BeltLine Defined

While it certainly needs no introduction, The BeltLine is a former railway corridor that encompasses the core of Atlanta, Georgia. Ever growing with extensive plans for future development, this thoughtfully carved outdoor space integrates 22 miles of unused railroad tracks that have been masterfully evolved into trails, walkways, open green space, parks, and much more. With the intention to serve as a “life-line” for Atlantans, the BeltLine is a place to explore and embrace every aspect of the authentic Atlanta lifestyle.
