What are your opinions?
Those neighborhoods are definitely making a lot of buzz. Adair Park, Pittsburgh and Capital View also are well poised (due to their proximity to the Beltline) to become "hot" neighborhoods as well. I see them as this decade's Cabbagetown, East Atlanta and Kirkwood.

Roswell and Suwanee are "up and coming?" Maybe in the 90s....

2013
1. Inman Park/Va-Hi
2. Midtown


Fall of 2014
1. Buckhead
2. Inman Park/Va Hi
3. West Midtown
4. Midtown


IMO, Atlanta is at a standstill until Mid 2014

I agree that as the beltline is further built out, neighborhoods around it will definitely be the ones to grow. I also think the far southern end of Grant Park and Boulevard Heights are poised to grow and increase in property values. Grant Park is obviously already popular, but I feel like people tend to underestimate the area south of Atlanta Ave and just across the railroad tracks (future beltline).

I think you're right.

I also agree that Buckhead is going to become a hot neighborhood again, with people realizing that it was never actually "out." But I do think it's going to figure out how to become popular with the young people again and attract more art and culture. The cream always rises to the top.

Buckhead IMO will be the hottest spot in Atlanta. There are at least 60 bars/restaurants in the immediate area. BA plans on opening 75-80 stores. There are at least 20 stores in the immediate area that are closed. Once BA is complete that entire area will have at least 100 new businesses. The only thing IMO that area needs is another hotel that isn't as expensive as the St Regis, a huge park and a real plan to deal with all the traffic that this area will have. Traffic is bad in that area now and it's going to be HORRIBLE once BA opens. Traffic during the day is going to be like how the Buckhead club district used to be at night traffic wise.

Yes, they do have to figure out how to deal with traffic.

But the fact remains that Buckhead is one of the few intown addresses you can have where you can actually send your kids to really good public schools, at least elementary.

I think Buckhead's biggest problem is that it is bisected by GA 400 and there aren't enough ways under it. I think a lot of the residential growth will be around the Chastain area where you are still in Buckhead but immune to all the stuff on Peachtree, or up Peachtree past Lenox where it starts transitioning to Brookhaven. If I could afford a reasonable 3 bedroom home in this area, I wouldn't think twice about purchasing it.

I agree that Buckhead may see some resurgence, but they've got to get a better pedestrian feel going. For how dense it is, parts of Buckhead still seem pretty spread out and car dependent. They also need to figure out how to diversify their draw, as the bar scene has gotten WAY too fratty IMO.

As far as intown goes, West Midtown and Old Fourth Ward seem to have the best combination of momentum and room-for-growth right now. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on your perspective), I also think these neighborhoods benefit immensely from proximity to the northern and eastern parts of the city (esp. proximity to Midtown and the northern parts of the Beltline). The northern parts of the city already have more money and development going for them, so it just seems like "gentrification" will happen sooner in nearby areas than, say, SW Atlanta.

Lol, Atlanta is so pathetic that they name suburban cities for neighborhoods instead of actual neighborhoods within the city limits. I lol'd.

Which suburban cities in the Atlanta metro are named after neighborhoods in the City of Atlanta?
