Candler Flatiron Healey Hurt J. Peachtree is a train station in Atlanta , Georgia. It is currently served by Amtrak 's Crescent passenger train. The street address is Peachtree Street , Northwest, in the Brookwood section of town between Buckhead and Midtown.
Designed by architect Neel Reid , it was built in as a commuter stop on the northside of town for the Southern Railway whose main stop was Terminal Station downtown. The new station was formally named Peachtree Station by Southern; informally it was widely referred to as Brookwood Station.
Terminal Station closed in , and after the start of Amtrak in when Union Station closed, Peachtree Station became the only passenger station in Atlanta still open.
Amtrak took over the Crescent from Southern in and became the station's tenant. Designed in an Italian Renaissance style of architecture, the depot features Palladian windows and classical elements such as pilasters and a molded entablature.
Amtrak passengers often note that the station is small and is elevated far above the tracks, requiring use of a long stairway or elevator. This design reflects the original intent of the station as a suburban stop and the much smaller size of Atlanta at the turn of the 20th century.
The interior of the station underwent an extensive remodeling in preparation for the Olympics, held in Atlanta. For some time, there have been proposals for a new Amtrak station in downtown. This station is intended to serve as a hub not only for Amtrak, but for MARTA, intercity buses, and the proposed commuter rail lines as well.
