This case study report addresses the problems associated with the designing of the MARTA West Lake Station Area. It describes the design and then construction of each MARTA station in terms of 3 stages that relate to track, station, and station area. Basically, the contention at West Lake centered around stage 3 design, which, in turn, impacted on the two prior steps. The West Lake Station Area reflected important elements of the evolving MARTA style of management, namely--that each MARTA station would be community-rooted. Each MARTA station would be different as required by diverse community needs, geography, and so on. This report also discusses the Transit Station Area Development (TSAD) program and states that the TSAD program has provided completed station area plans phased with detailed engineering so that MARTA system plans reflected local government and citizen involvement, preferences, and policies.
