East Side Beltline Trail
The Eastside Beltline Trail is one of the best amenities of Intown Atlanta living. It provides walkable accessibility to some of best Intown culture, restaurants, shops, and markets to anyone living in proximity.
If you’re new to Atlanta, the Eastside Trail is the ongoing project that connects a multi-use trail from Midtown to Reynoldstown.
The trail has ignited both business and real-estate growth in the surrounding neighborhoods. According to beltline.org, there’s been more than $4.1 billion in private redevelopment and over 11,000 permanent jobs created for the area.
This boom has allowed for an explosion of new local restaurants and shops as well as two significant mixed-use developments, Ponce City Market and Krog Street Market. These developments now house some of Atlanta’s best restaurants and headquarter some of Atlanta’s most sought-after places to work. For example, MailChimp, a leading Atlanta tech company, calls Ponce City Market it’s home, attracting top work talent into the surrounding urban areas.
Inman Park & Old Fourth Ward
The increase in economic development from the Eastside trail has spurred the rise of two of my favorite Intown neighborhoods. Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward.
According to an analysis done by Knock, these two sought-after neighborhoods continue to outpace the Atlanta market in terms of home value. This highlights the confidence that both home buyers and developers have in future property growth opportunities. In fact, in attempting to meet demand, Curbed Atlanta recently noted that there are four new residential developments just within a 2.5 mile stretch on Boulevard, the main artery of Old Fourth Ward.
What’s special about these two neighborhoods though is their diversity and history. There’s really something for everyone. Whether you’re a family looking for a home and yard or you want the convenience of a modern condo, you can find it all.
Intermingled among the tree-lined streets of homes dating back to the 1920’s are local coffee shops, yoga studios, and amazing restaurants. And with the Eastside trail accessible, almost as you step out your door, you can take a quick bike ride or walk to piedmont park and midtown, getting the full Intown experience whenever you want.
If these diverse neighborhoods and eastside trail living appeal to you then I would love to help you find the perfect home or investment property. I just recently listed an immaculately renovated 2bd 2bth loft in Old 4th Ward, that’s perfectly located less than two blocks from the Eastside Trail.
