Brookhaven/Oglethorpe (originally Brookhaven) is a train station in Brookhaven, Georgia, on the Gold Line of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. An elevated station, it is located one mile south of Oglethorpe University. The station provides connecting bus service to North Druid Hills, Toco Hills, North DeKalb Mall, the Peachtree Boulevard business district, and the Georgia Department of Labor.

In the 2010s, the station was planned to become a "city center" for Brookhaven on the property composed of mixed use, office, retail, civic and public space. The plan was canceled in 2017.

Development[edit]

MARTA and the City of Brookhaven planned to build a transit-oriented "city center" on the station's parking lot in 2014. The proposal entailed a development composed of mixed uses, offices, retailers, and civic and public space.[1][2] The project was canceled in early 2017, after plans by Brookhaven's mayor to suspend their work on the project and delay rezoning and tax incentives for the property's development.[3]
