Abstract
This paper seeks to provide one solution to Atlanta's auto-oriented development problem. With its history as a streetcar town as inspiration, by shutting down a portion of Peachtree Street to cars and making it a transit-only thoroughfare, Atlanta can form a model for the South of dense retail and residential development. Using Denver's 16th Street Mall as a starting point, this paper looks at the legislative and regulatory hurdles the project would encounter. Hopefully, other cities in the U.S. could explore the viability of a similar project.
