West Midtown Real Estate Analysis

West Midtown, also known as the Westside, is an urban neighborhood located in Atlanta.  Once largely industrial, West Midtown is now the location of urban lofts, art galleries, live music venues, high-end retail and restaurants.  The borders of West Midtown are not defined officially by the city, as it encompasses several neighborhoods.  Generally, though, West Midtown is bordered to the east by Northside Drive and Georgia Tech, to the north by Buckhead, to the west by Marietta Boulevard and Marietta Road, and to the south by Hollowell Parkway.

Once a largely abandoned industrial area, West Midtown has seen large amounts of gentrification and infill, with an eclectic mix of new lofts, restaurants, shops, art galleries, salons and professional firms. However, the loft-style industrial feel of the neighborhood has been retained, as most of the new developments are restorations of once-neglected factories or warehouses that date back to the 1880s.  West Midtown has also become a popular location for high-tech companies seeking the open floor plans and loft office space, including the Atlanta offices of Facebook.

West Midtown is a popular stop for food lovers due to the fact that some of Atlanta’s trendiest high-end restaurants are located in the district.  Many of West Midtown’s dining establishments have garnered national attention and favor with local foodies such as Bacchanalia, Abattoir, Miller Union, Barcelona, Cooks & Soldiers, Bocado, Le Fat, and The Optimist.
