Atlanta’s Selig Enterprises announced plans to build a pedestrian bridge enhancing direct access to the Atlanta BeltLine’s Northeast Trail for Ansley Park, Piedmont Heights neighborhoods adjacent to Ansley Mall. Some suggest improved access for as many as 45 neighborhoods as Midtown Atlanta is continuing in a rapid growth phase.

Selig acquired Ansley Mall in 1972 as a well-known, well-positioned asset in its portfolio. Mindy Selig, senior vice president of Selig Enterprises, stated, “Our family has owned Ansley Mall for over 50 years, and it has been one of the ‘jewel box’ properties in our portfolio. Our vision is to create an enhanced experience with the new Atlanta BeltLine connection. Our customers and the surrounding communities will have direct access to many of Atlanta’s unique neighborhoods through the trail network.”

Selig Enterprises, one of the largest privately-owned real estate companies in the Southeast, announced on Nov. 2 this plan to undertake the addition of a pedestrian bridge to link Ansley Mall to the forthcoming Atlanta BeltLine’s Northeast Trail that will run adjacent to the property. The new BeltLine link is part of a larger capital improvement plan for the 16-acre, open-air shopping center to enhance the destination and provide the surrounding community with a useful and fun retail and restaurant mix, improved connectivity, elevated programming and new activated outdoor space as the “front door” to the BeltLine.

The second phase of the Atlanta BeltLine Northeast Trail will include 1.2 miles of paved trail, lighting, and security cameras. The pedestrian bridge will allow Ansley Park and Piedmont Heights residents direct access to the multi-use trail. The bridge will span 105 feet and will avoid any environmental impact to the surrounding nature. Selig is in the conceptual stage of determining capital improvements to enhance what is now the rear of the property to create a warm and inviting sense of arrival to the property. The Ansley Mall BeltLine bridge is slated to open in late 2023.

Ansley is known as a neighborhood hub, home to local shops like The Cook’s Warehouse, Ansley Wine Merchants, Phidippides, Brooklyn Bagel, Intaglia Home Collection, Publix, CVS and many more. Ansley is located at the corner of Piedmont and Monroe drives, a stone’s throw from The Atlanta Botanical Garden, Piedmont Park and the prestigious Piedmont Driving Club. Ansley originally opened in 1964 and was anchored by Woolworth’s, Colonial Food Store, and a movie theatre. It was renovated in 2010.

Selig’s retail portfolio spans approximately 4 million square feet across the Southeast, with key centers in the Midtown, Upper Westside and Buckhead markets, including Buckhead Triangle, Brookwood Place, Buckhead Square I and II, The Shops of Buckhead, Buckhead Commons and Peachtree Plaza. Selig also led the development of The Works, its 80-acre, adaptive reuse mixed-use development, on Atlanta’s Upper Westside as well as 1105 West Peachtree in Midtown.
