Westside Update: New homes, mixed-used developments on the way

Westside, West Midtown, Upper Westside – these are the new monikers you’ll be seeing more of as the former industrial area continues to transform into Intown’s hippest new area to live, work and play. Here’s a roundup of some of the projects underway, including apartments, townhomes and mixed-use developments.

Quarry Yards
Urban Creek Partners unveiled plans and renderings for this 70-acre mixed-use development in West Midtown a year ago this month. The project, which could finally break ground in the second quarter of 2019, would become a master-planned gateway to Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry, the city’s new park and reservoir along the Atlanta BeltLine. The project, which is adjacent to the Bankhead MARTA Station on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, will include 575,000 square feet of office space, 850 residential units, a 300 room hotel, and 75,000 square feet of retail and restaurants.

Work is slated to begin this month on this new mixed-use development at 8th Street and Howell Mill Road from Gateway Ventures and Atlantic Capital Properties. The project will feature 175,000 square feet of office space, 25,000 square feet of retail and 264 apartments from Trammell Crow Residential.
