2021 YCR CE Bus Tour


Atlanta’s Chamblee / Doraville submarket is anchored by two MARTA rail stations, Peachtree-DeKalb Airport, highways, and a growing trail system. It has a rich and diverse cultural community as well as a growing multi-family, retail, and commercial presence. The agenda will begin with a panel discussion focused on the submarket’s rich history, as well as the development going on today and how it is shaping the future direction of Chamblee. Following the first panel will be a fireside chat angled towards the community and economic development. Individuals from the CID and other local organizations will go into detail about what the community wants to see as Chamblee develops, and what makes people want to do business and move here. After the conversation, we will tour some of the markets most “talked-about” new developments; beginning with District at Chamblee, Chamblee Town Center, and Solis Carraway.
