Amazon is focused on Atlanta’s Westside for a new development.

A developer working with the e-commerce giant has a portion of a nearly 300-acre inactive rail yard under contract. It would build the project for Amazon as part of the overall development.

The property is part of CSX Corp.’s Tilford Yard along Marietta Boulevard just north of the future Westside Park. It is one of the largest in the city and was originally pitched to Amazon back in 2018 as a possible location for HQ2.

The developer has agreed to buy a piece of the more than 60-year-old terminal northwest of Marietta Road, according to sources familiar with the plans.
