Populous, as part of the JACOBS team, has been appointed by the Atlanta Aerotropolis Alliance to assist in developing a strategic plan for the region around Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the busiest airport in the world. The study is sponsored by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), who has partnered with the Atlanta Aerotropolis Alliance and other regional organizations to fund and develop this strategic visioning and planning effort for the Atlanta Aerotropolis area. The study includes transportation and land use analysis, catalytic site development, marketing and brand development and an action plan for the Atlanta Aerotropolis Alliance as well as other partners within the area. The purpose of the blueprint is to provide a well-coordinated plan that can be used as the basis for future development and reinvestment, transportation improvements, and greater economic development in the study area. The initial phase of the work is expected to conclude in fall of 2015.
