Midtown has created new zoning policies as a result of exponential pedestrian growth in the area that will help propel a new pedestrian project. The organization expects to break ground on its longest most ambitious streetscape project called the Juniper Street Transformation Project. The project will create bikeway and pedestrian amenities across 12 blocks between 14th Street and Ponce de Leon Avenue, according to Curbed Atlanta.
