Getting Your Bearings
About The Atlantic Station TAD
The Atlantic Station Tax Allocation District was established in 1999 to facilitate the redevelopment of a 138-acre brownfield site, which had been contaminated due to almost a century of heavy industrial use.
Today, this site is home to a vibrant, sustainable, mixed-use development which has made use of alternative transportation modes to minimize congestion, improve air quality, and connect major activity centers. This project has also transformed east/west links into more efficient, aesthetically pleasing transportation corridors.
