As the birthplace of America’s best-known civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., no other Atlanta neighborhood is as steeped in history as the Old 4th Ward. Located just east of downtown, it is home to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Ebenezer Baptist Church and the Sweet Auburn Historic District.
One of the most exciting Atlanta projects undertaken in quite some time has been the Atlanta Beltline – a walking trail connecting 45 neighborhoods, re-utilizing space that was previously historic railroad corridors and encircling the downtown area. Connecting neighborhoods, parks and living spaces, O4W is the first neighborhood to have the beltline completed.
Old 4th Ward Park is a new 17-acre park and is a modern, family friendly, multi-use park that is both beautiful and functional. With quick access from the beltline, this gem is centered around a large pond with organic plantings. People of all ages can find something to enjoy here with a playground, a skatepark and Saturday croquet on the event lawn. Look forward to movies in the park next summer!
Ponce City Market, a major restoration of the old Sears building on Ponce de Leon Avenue, features over 1 million square feet of retail, restaurants, office and 260 residential condominium units. To honor the building’s historic past, Jamestown Properties is renovated the building while keeping the historical elements intact. A combination of old and new – so very Atlanta.
