Atlanta Redevelopment Map: More than Just the Beltline

View as Map

Atlanta is proud of the Beltline. Sure, it's taking way too long and funding disputes between the city and the Atlanta Public Schools system are kind of embarrassing, but the project has already been a game-changer in many neighborhoods and promises to help revitalize many more. Of course, there's more to Atlanta development than just the Beltline, and this new year presents an opportune time to map some of the hottest redevelopment projects gaining (at least some modicum of) traction in 2016, according to those whose job it is to sell Atlanta. Real estate brokers The Keen Team compiled a list that tracks a few of Atlanta's other big projects that've got them all excited. As the map shows, the south and west sides are due for some major love.

1. Westside Park - Bellwood Quarry

Copy Link
W Marietta St
Atlanta, GA 30318

On the western fringes of Atlanta, the old rock quarry is slated to become a unique urban oasis featuring a 400-foot deep reservoir and 45 acres of greenspace.

2. Fort McPherson

1732 Walker Ave SW
Atlanta, GA 30310

For 126 years, the 448-acre site on the city's south side served as an army base. Soon, media-mogul Tyler Perry will transform 330 acres into a studio complex, with the remainder of the site slated for mixed use development to boost the neighborhood.

3. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive

1444 M.L.K. Jr Dr NW
Atlanta, GA 30314

Stretching 12 miles from the Capitol downtown, past Atlanta University Center and out to the western reaches of the city, the road hardly lives up to the legacy of one of Atlanta's greatest residents. Mayor Reed hopes that $250 million in bonds can help transform the thoroughfare into “one of the most attractive streets in America.”

4. Turner Field

With the Atlanta Braves' departure from intown at the end of next season, the Turner Field complex is ripe for major redevelopment. And with the recent announcement that Georgia State University and Carter will be up to bat for the project, great things should be on the horizon.

5. Underground Atlanta

50 Upper Alabama St #007

The original heart of the city, Underground and South Downtown have long struggled in terms of attracting investment. With plans for the city to sell the languishing mall, developers are turning to the neighborhood as the next big thing.
