"An Eclectic Mix of Eateries and Shopping"

The neighborhood may be one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets! If you are looking for an affordable place to live that is close to everything this is the place. The only downside at the moment is the large student population because of Georiga Tech and Georgia State University but that is rapidly changing.

This is a 100 year old community that was established to accommodate the Atlantic Steel Company workers. It was a thriving community with stores, eateries, and places of worship. The mill closed and the neighborhood went down. In the 1990s there was renewed interest because of the Olympics and the Atlantic Station development.

At the same time Georgia Tech was expanding and needed more housing for the influx of students. They turned their attention to the Home Park area since it was an adjacent community. Most of the living space was turned into student-friendly housing so there are now very few individually owned homes.

Despite the student population it is still a thriving area. The neighborhood association has made marked improvements and the retail shops are some of the best around.

You can’t beat Sublime Donuts for the best donuts in town. The nightlife scene is very active whether you want sports, comedy, or a quiet evening.

Home Park is zoned for some of the best schools in the city so it is a great place to raise kids. It is also convenient to the major highways and great activities in the downtown area.
