U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams (D-Ga.) presented an oversized check for $750,000 to the Buckhead Community Improvement District for HUB404, a park that would cap Ga. 400 and reconnect areas split by the highway.
HUB404 is the planned half-mile-long park that would span nine acres and bridge Lenox Road and Ga. 400 in Buckhead. It would link PATH400 to the Atlanta Beltline, Buckhead MARTA station, neighboring streets and to neighborhood parks.
“HUB404 will be transformational for Buckhead, and we greatly appreciate this significant funding that will help make it a reality,” said Jim Durrett, executive director of the BCID, in a news release. The BCID is leading the effort to secure public funds for the estimated $270 million project.
