This image is a perfect depiction of the Atlanta Beltline as it showcases the Beltline being a mixed-use trail. The Atlanta Beltline in this picture shows local residents, biking, running, and walking and a very diverse age range of people utilizing it. Many people use it for commuting to work, going shopping, exercise, or even for leisure time. This picture is also important because it includes a view of the once up and running business in the background which usually stands today as apartments or businesses along the Beltline. The revamping of these abandoned warehouses has proven to only expand the success of the Beltline by bringing in tax revenue and also bringing in new residents to the area. The revamping of local warehouses to bring revenue into the Beltline is exampled by the renewal of the Sears, Roebuck & Co. building in Atlanta into the Ponce City Market.
