MARTA will break ground on “E. Co” at Avondale Station, a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) located near the bustling city center of downtown Decatur. The official ceremony will be on Monday, Nov. 28 at 3 p.m.

Columbia Ventures will master develop the 7.7 acres of Avondale Station’s south lot into a mixed-use collection that will offer affordable, independent living for seniors—in partnership with Columbia Residential—and more than 370 market rate apartments in a joint venture with Cortland Partners that also features retail and restaurant space. The site will serve as a catalyst for continued growth in this highly visible gateway in east Decatur.
