Amtrak eyes Doraville station

Another major addition could be coming to rejuvenate the old GM plant site in Doraville.

Amtrak is in talks with both MARTA and Norfolk Southern to put a new train stop at the Assembly project near I-285 and Buford Highway, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

It would make the area a major transportation hub.

It would be in addition to the millions of square feet of shops, offices and residential areas planned for the site of the former GM plant. Demolition was expected to be finished this year.

The project may also include a movie and sound studio.

Amtrak reportedly tried a couple years ago to move out of its historic station in the Brookwood area on Peachtree Street.
