Connectivity and Community: Have It All With These 3 West Midtown Developments
Atlanta is evolving at a rapid pace. From finance to movie production, industries across the spectrum are skyrocketing. Young professionals are growing their careers. Residents of all ages are seeking new areas to explore. And to keep up with it all: commercial real estate is booming.
Atlanta is a huge city. But with multiple vibrant neighborhoods, what is the neighborhood that drives the most buzz, excitement and popularity - and has the real estate to continually attract newcomers? It’s a neighborhood that has it all: West Midtown.
Atlanta can expand in only so many directions before taking over the state of Georgia. And while areas north of Atlanta, such as Alpharetta and Cumming, have experienced a surge in development over the last several years, not every Atlantan wants to live over 40 minutes outside of the city.
In today’s world, people want many things: a cool residence, a vibrant office, stunning retail options, innovative dining options, bustling entertainment areas and inviting active spaces. And in West Midtown, tenants and visitors really can have it all.
The neighborhoods west of Atlanta, including West Midtown and Westside, have surged with growth and development for the past 5 years. Formerly an area for industrial plants, these neighborhoods have since been revitalized and filled with office space, retail space, hotels, multi-family units and entertainment spaces, while maintaining the character, look and feel of its previous use as an industrial site.
The energy in Atlanta’s western neighborhoods is addictive. And with three thriving adaptive reuse developments in the pipeline, each with its unique mix of retail, office and residential space, unmatched amenities and convenience to active areas, entertainment and more, it’s no surprise that West Midtown is the perfect neighborhood to have it all.
Connectivity is everything at Quarry Yards. As the only major Atlanta site to offer direct connectivity to MARTA and the future Westside Beltline, Quarry Yards connects visitors to surrounding natural environments including West Quarry Park and the Proctor Creek Greenway.
This development is located less than two miles from Georgia Tech and the additional vibrant amenities and residential options in West Midtown.
Connectivity doesn’t stop with Quarry Yards’ convenient location. The unique dining experiences available at Quarry Yards will drive a sense of community as daily food trucks, fast-casual restaurants, a self-serve urban garden and on-site, chef-driving dining options will become a food destination for tenants and visitors alike.
Meet the next generation of makers, creators and explorers at The Works. With 970 linear feet of spur gathering area, 13 acres of greenspace and 350,000 square feet of retail space, including a maker’s building, it’s no surprise that The Works will become home to the newest crafters, artists, designers and innovators of Atlanta. And with 99,000 square feet of entertainment area built from adaptive reuse, The Works may just give competitive entertainment venues across the city a run for their money.
The Works is expected to deliver in the fall 2019.
Take the workplace to a whole new level at Star Metals. With 260,000 square feet of office space, 30,000 square feet of retail, cafes and showroom space, iconic architectural and unparalleled amenities, Star Metals transforms Class A office space into A+ space. Providing panoramic views of Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown Atlanta via its landscaped outdoor terraces, sky park and rooftop restaurant, you may ask yourself if you’re actually at work or out exploring the city.
With notable neighbors including Westside Provisions District, Georgia Tech and Northside Tavern, Star Metals is expected to deliver in early 2021.
With connectivity to everything Atlantans love - vibrant restaurants, walkable areas, entertainment and more - why live anywhere else in Atlanta? With these three developments in West Midtown, you really can have it all.
