Monday Salmagundi

  • Service changes for 24 MARTA bus routes went into effect Saturday, April 21. Among them is the ever-evolving Route #2, which – if there was such a thing – would be a top contender for the title of World’s Most Frequently Altered Bus Route.

The agency is also making some changes to Red Line rail service, “to improve schedule adherence.” Train departure times have been changed, but the length of the headways (the time between the departures) will remain the same.

  • From Bisnow: The empty lot at 615 Peachtree Street is under contract for construction of a cancer treatment facility that will be operated by Emory Healthcare. The Cousins Properties parcel has been empty since an office building was demolished there in 2006. A mixed-used project called Fox Plaza was originally to have been built afterward, but those plans were done in by the ravages of the real estate crash.
