Why Do People Live In West Midtown?
West Midtown is most known for its industrial feel, mainly because the area was (and parts still are) in industrial area with much of the railroad activity in and out of Atlanta occurring in this area. The Marietta Street corridor was primarily industrial and warehouses, but in the 1990’s, several adaptive reuse projects like Hastings Seed Company, King Plow Arts Center and such signaled the beginning of changes to the area. Much of the area had become abandoned, but has now seen large amounts of infill development with a mix of new lofts, restaurants, retail, art galleries and more.
West Midtown has seen a surge in new development (2018-2019) and also is home to many of Atlanta’s trendiest high-end restaurants. The White Provision District took former warehouse/industrial space and converted it to retail and offices. Part of this development is White Provision Condominiums.

What Are the Neighborhoods Like?
West Midtown features numerous neighborhoods or communities. Brock Built has been a major player in the development of new home communities in the area that include West Highlands, Westside Station, Dupont Commons and Westtown. More established neighborhoods (including townhome communities) include Riverside, Home Park, Underwood Hills, Berkeley Park and Westover Plantation. Atlantic Station, a redevelopment of the former Atlantic Steel Mill at 17th and the Downtown Connector is also considered part of West Midtown, but it actually has its own zip code.
The redevelopment of the Bellwood Quarry into the Westside Park will be a major catalyst for additional development. When completed, it will have the old quarry serving as an additional water reservoir for the City of Atlanta, but will be a park larger in size than Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta.

Well…a whole heck of a lot! New construction seems to be on every corner, from office space to lofts and apartments, and more.
West Midtown has an arts scene that rivals Midtown, Atlanta’s premier arts district. However, unlike Midtown, which is focused more on classical art, West Midtown is home to an “ad hoc group of contemporary art galleries that have styled themselves as a more intellectual alternative.” Prominent art galleries include Saltworks Gallery, which shows works by both local and international artists; the Sandler Hudson Gallery, which has represented contemporary artists since 1989; the Emily Amy Gallery, known for emerging artists from across the country; and the Jennifer Schwartz Gallery, known for fine art photography with regular rotating exhibitions.
