Uptown Atlanta is the mixed-use destination surrounding the Lindbergh Center MARTA Station. The Lawn at Uptown is situated in front of Pike Nurseries (between Camellia Ln. and Garson Dr.) and is accessible via MARTA and walking and bike paths.

Connecting communities through transit, soccer, and leadership training.
Station Soccer is a program run by Atlanta not-for-profit, Soccer in the Streets. The organization was established in 1989 and provides free soccer programs for underserved youth in the metro Atlanta area. In 2016 Station Soccer was launched on the plaza level at Five Points Station resulting in the first soccer field project inside a train station in the world. After the success of Five Points - Station Soccer, the program was expanded to include West End Station in 2018. Further Station Soccer projects will be announced over the next year as part of “The League of Stations”. Communities will represent their stations and play each other via the MARTA transit network. Partners in the project include The Atlanta United Foundation, MARTA and The City of Atlanta.
Hambidge Cross-Pollination Art Lab
At the close of 2020, Hambidge launched the Cross-Pollination Art Lab in Atlanta. This initiative aims to bring together visual artists, dancers, writers, poets, and musicians to share ideas and experiment. Four separate but connected spaces totaling 18,000 square feet will serve as a community hub for creatives, meeting and Zoom conference room space, exhibition and performance spaces. An additional area within the development will provide multidisciplinary studio spaces. This donated space, with direct access to the MARTA Lindbergh Station, is located at Uptown Atlanta, a mixed-use development adjacent to Piedmont Road, at 2450 Piedmont Road, Atlanta GA 30324.
Our plan is to create a space that will be valuable to the entire creative community, making necessary adjustments for safety during the pandemic. We will offer dedicated space to collaborate, host events and lectures, and facilitate meaningful conversations on topics relevant to both art and the world around us; studios for artists and writers; a gallery space; experimental installation and performance space; and co-work spaces for meetings and workshops.
