Atlanta BeltLine Inc.'s board of directors last week selected lead designers for the BeltLine project and established the basis for future design and construction, the agency announced.

After a competitive bidding process, the directors chose the design team of Chicago-based Perkins+Will and New York-based James Corner Field Operation. The BeltLine is a 25-year, $2.8 billion redevelopment project to provide a network of public parks, multi-use trails, and transit along a historic 22-mile railroad corridor circling downtown Atlanta. Much of it will be financed with bonds.
