Atlanta is part of the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. and a key interconnection hub for the southeastern U.S. The city has developed as a transportation hub since 1837 at the intersection of two railroad lines. The on-going $2.8 billion Beltline Project is converting a former 22-mile freight railroad loop surrounding the city into a multi-use trail which will increase the city’s park space by 40%. Atlanta remains a key transportation hub with the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, having served over 104 million passengers in 2016, the world’s busiest airport since 1998. Regional economic drivers include hospitality, healthcare and technology. In addition, Atlanta has a business-friendly climate with relatively low costs of doing business.
