2017 is already off to a great start for Atlanta (Rise Up!) and things are just going to get better. Metro Atlanta is expected to grow by 2.5 million people by the year 2040. Where are they all going? Great question. But for the coming year, we have a pretty good idea of where people will be moving (hint: it’s all south of I-20).
1- Adair Park: Situated along the Beltline, this Southwest Atlanta neighborhood is attracting home buyers who are interested in the original 1950’s bungalows, the convenience of Intown life, and the rich history of this neighborhood. Our neighborhood expert lists his favorites about this SWATL neighborhood here.
2- West End: For architectural buffs, West End is a paradise city. Walk down one street and see craftsman homes, Queen Anne’s, bungalows, American Foursquare and more. West End is also one of the most historical areas of Atlanta and is on the National Register of Historic Places. This charming neighborhood also happens to be directly in the path of the upcoming West Side Beltline trail and new Georgia Dome, ensuring that residents have walkable access to shopping, dining, and culture.
3- College Park: College Park is truly a city of revival. In 2008, College Park reported the highest crime rate in Georgia and the population decreased by more than 30%. However, College Park was runner-up in this year’s Curbed Cup Neighborhood of the Year and for good reason. This tight-knit community is historic and homes are original and unique. And calling College Park home means you’ll be in good company. A few corporations that call College Park home include Chick-fil-A, ExpressJet, and the Federal Aviation Administration.
