ABOUT WEST MIDTOWN / UPPER WESTSIDE ATLANTA

west midtown

West Midtown (also known colloquially as the Upper Westside - not to be confused with the Historic Westside or West End) is an urban area of Atlanta west of I-75 inside the perimeter with rather indistinct borders depending on who you ask - south of Buckhead, west of Northside Drive or west of Georgia Tech, east of Marietta Boulevard or maybe all the way to I-285, definitely north of Downtown. But no matter who you ask, they will tell you it is one of Atlanta’s most exciting intown neighborhoods. What was once predominantly factories, warehouses, working class homes, and dilapidated industrial properties has experienced an epic revitalization. Amidst vestiges of Atlanta’s railroad days, you’ll now find an eclectic variety of renovated homes dating back as far as the 1890’s, craftsman style in-fill construction, modern urban apartments, and lively mixed-use developments featuring some of Atlanta’s hottest new restaurants, kitschy eateries, unique boutiques, and converted loft residences.

In 2005, the fanfare around the opening of Atlantic Station at the old Atlantic Steel Mill property immediately west of Midtown sparked renewed interest in Atlanta’s once overlooked Westside. Initially, many Atlantans who had been outpriced in neighboring Buckhead and Midtown sought affordable home ownership in the area. Since then, developments such as Westside Provisions District, the Westside Beltline Trail, and the highly anticipated 280-ace Westside Reservoir Park at Bellwood Quarry that is slated to open in 2019 have attracted more home buyers even as property values have soared.

The “cool vibe” of West Midtown that attracts true urban dwellers, from millennials to empty nesters, is due in part to the vibrant creative community nestled into repurposed industrial complexes like the King Plow Arts Center/Terminal West and The Goat Farm. You’ll find a diverse mix of live music venues, art galleries, working artist studios, performing arts theaters, artisans, and foundries. This attraction hasn’t been lost on the corporate world either. Many offices, including Facebook’s Atlanta office, have relocated to the desirable open floor plans of converted industrial complexes like Brickworks.

If you are looking to make your home in one of Atlanta’s hottest intown communities where Atlanta’s history and modern aspirations collide into eclectic lofts, modern condos, and historic bungalows, contact Team Sterling for help finding your new home in West Midtown.
