Downtown Atlanta Neighborhood Guide

Action-Packed · City Living · Public Transportation · Nightlife · Parks


Downtown Atlanta is the ultimate in urban living. From the Victorian era buildings to the brand new skyscrapers, it’s the center of action in the city. While you won’t see much new construction Downtown, there’s lots of adaptive reuse going on. The city is in the middle of a massive, planned revitalization and it’s changing the entire face of Downtown. In recent years the city has invested in numerous clean-ups, repairs, landscaping, and Sculptural Playgrounds.


Traffic in Atlanta is notoriously hectic, which makes living in Downtown even more desirable to those who work here. This neighborhood has always had MARTA access, but last-mile connectivity wasn’t necessarily there. Now, the new Atlanta Streetcar runs on a 2.7-mile loop, connecting Centennial Olympic Park with the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site and nearby neighborhoods. You can also rent bikes or scooters along the road to speed up your walk.


Many residents of Downtown Atlanta are business professionals who enjoy the ability to avoid traffic and walk to work. Because Georgia State University occupies the west side of Downtown, this area is also popular among students and faculty. Downtown Atlanta is an eclectic, lively hub of culture, entertainment, and Southern charm. (Pro tip: if you'd like to keep the downtown convenience, but want a more suburban feel, you might like Buckhead. It is located directly north of Downtown and has become a major business hub in recent years.)

Absolutely! Downtown has a walk score of 90/100, so don't expect to have to drive to everything you want to see in Atlanta's beautiful downtown.
Connecting with a local Atlanta apartment expert is the best & fastest way to find apartments in Atlanta. You’ll get access to all the current rent specials in Atlanta, get a custom list of recommended buildings (some of which you might not even know about), and sign your next lease with confidence.
Apartment policies regarding AirBnB change frequently, so for the most accurate list, we recommend reaching out to one of our Locators for the most up-to-date information.
It is best to start looking for apartments in Atlanta 10 weeks before your move-in date. 10 weeks will allow you to see all of the inventory available, and also give you plenty of time to tour units and consider your options.
Apartment listing websites can be great for preliminary research, but working with a Locator allows you to ask questions, get personalized suggestions, find buildings you might not have found on your own, find the best rent discounts, and ultimately sign a lease in a place that you love with zero stress and absolute confidence.
