Mostly Mixed-use Mid-rise, MARTA, Not Skyscrapers, Making Atlanta Move In 2015

In 2015, Atlanta will see multitudes of urbane mid-rise projects opening– overtaking parking lots that have existed since the destruction during the automobile-crazed 1950’s.

The focus is on walkability, sense of place, and retail storefronts on the street.  From Downtown and Midtown Atlanta, north to Sandy Springs and Buckhead, east to Inman Park/Reynoldstown and the westside of Midtown, Atlanta is filling its under-used spaces with mixed-use pedestrian-oriented developments.  Most located near MARTA transit stations, which will get their own upgrades this year, too.

The first-class retail projects like Ponce City Market, Buckhead Atlanta, Avalon and Krog Street Market will continue to open top chef restaurants and world-class boutiques. But Many dynamic skyscrapers under construction may not be completed this year. Very likely, several enormous state-of-the-art movie production studios will be constructed. Overall, however, 2015 will see the completion of many important urban infill projects to go alongside the major landmark projects of 2014– such as the Center for Civil & Human Rights, College Football Hall of Fame and the Atlanta Streetcar.

The following projects should be nearly completed or opening this year:
