On Wednesday in a ceremony at Five Points, C.H. Briggs and MARTA will unveil glowing art installations made primarily of DuPont™ Corian® that will be on display at MARTA stations across the Atlanta.

OLD FOURTH WARD: BeltLine: Keep Off! (for now)

OLD FOURTH WARD: BeltLine: Keep Off! (for now)

ATLANTA -- For more than a decade, Atlanta residents have been hearing about the BeltLine. It's a $2.8 Billion dollar project turning the city's old railroad loop into a massive redevelopment project. Leaders in the Old Fourth Ward are now telling people to keep off.

"When we first came in to the Old Fourth Ward in 1997, it was a pretty scary place," said Jake Rothschild, owner of Jake's Ice Cream.

But he still saw a sweet future for the neighborhood. "It's just become a more friendly, warm place to be. More people are walking, talking to each other. Cars are slowing down," he said.

Like a ribbon of red velvet through Jake's Ice Cream, the BeltLine flows right past his shop: "We do see a lot of pedestrian traffic that we didn't see two years ago, so now, it's getting even busier."
