Atlanta Real Estate Focus: West Midtown

Once dominated by industrial and warehouse developments, West Midtown is now a highly sought after area for retail, office and residential developments.

The character of the warehouses and cotton mills has helped the area transcend into a hip, urban place for multi-family residences and has become home to some of the city’s most popular restaurants, art galleries and trendy shops. Additionally, the upcoming completion of the Westside Trail of the beltline in 2016 will connect ten neighborhoods and provide residents and visitors access to 30 acres of green space.

Given these unique characteristics, it’s predicted that the explosion of real estate development along the belt line will only continue along this Westside corridor.  Due to its rising popularity, developers are finding it increasingly difficult to find land to buy, and businesses find enormous challenges in available office space to lease. These factors are contributing to more vertical development with buyers or current owners tearing down and rebuilding in order to expand.

Midtown Atlanta is one of the key areas in metro Atlanta in which we specialize.  McWhirter Realty Partners represents buyers of office and flex space in West Midtown Atlanta. Recent transactions include 380 14th Street for a proposed hotel and a relocation for a loft/office tenant at Howell Mill and 11th Street. While there are no defined boundaries of West Midtown by the city of Atlanta, the popularity and demand are pushing the limits beyond Northside Drive to the east and Marietta Boulevard to the west.
