Quarry Yards Atlanta's staff handles both soil preparation and truck loading. The main focus of the company is construction, but being able to handle a variety of projects helped it establish itself as a competitor in the industry. It doesn't have any competitors on either side of the fence, but it does face competition from within the industry, creating a lot of opportunities for growth in Atlanta.

​Quarry Yards, named after the Bellwood Quarry, is a 70-acre master planned, mixed-use development by Urban Creek Partners. It is also adjacent and just northwest of the Bankhead MARTA station. The trailhead of the new Proctor Creek Greenway is located on the property and the first ¼ mile or so of the trail runs through the heart of the project. The Atlanta Beltline corridor runs along Marietta Boulevard just east of the property. Quarry Yards is in Subarea 10 of the Beltline master planning area.

In addition to hundreds of apartments and a hotel, more than a half-million square feet of offices and 75,000 square feet of retail were said to be in the works. In the summer of 2019, that project’s marketing campaign calling for a “new Atlanta”—with images of blissful, professional yuppies in abundance—irritated many longtime neighbors already fretting the impact of gentrification in the area.

Land

A bicyclist peddles past Quarry Yards on the Proctor Creek Greenway near Bankhead MARTA Station on Saturday, September 12, 2020. The 70 acres was put together by former Georgia Tech and Atlanta Braves baseball star Mark Teixeira and his partners. It was slated for a highly publicized mixed-use development in a low-income area that is drawing intense interest from developers. The land is at the convergence of three of Atlanta’s highly touted greenspace initiatives under development — Bellwood Quarry Park, the Beltline and the Proctor Creek Greenway.

“If you all knew the work that had to go into acquiring the property in the first place more than 15 years ago, you would not believe it,” said Rob Brawner, the executive director for the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership. Brawner thanked the Trust for Public Land and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, which gave a $17.5 million grant to help build the park. (Source: www.ajc.com)
