Atlantic Station Guide


Welcome to 30363, one of Atlanta’s leading zip codes. Modern apartments? Check. Top-quality shopping? Check. Incredible restaurants? Check. Unparalleled events? Check. Atlantic Station residents can enjoy all that city life has to offer without ever leaving the neighborhood.

Atlantic Station sits on the former Atlantic Steel Mill site, which was headquartered in Atlanta beginning in 1901. Everything from cotton bale ties and barrel hoops to nails, rivets, and fence posts were produced at the mill, and it was a thriving part of Atlanta’s industrial economy. But, when the company was acquired and moved to Canada in 1979, operations here all but stopped. Fast forward to the 21st century: Jacoby Development purchased the mill, reimagined it, and Atlantic station as we know it was born in 2005.

Today’s Atlantic Station is a far cry from its mill origins. As one of the first mixed-use development areas, the neighborhood capitalized on the idea that people could live, work, and play with ease, all without adding to Atlanta’s already congested thoroughfares. The area was designed to be an environmentally friendly place to live where pollution was minimized thanks to walkability. Many of the buildings in the neighborhood are LEED-certified, too. Since its inception, Atlantic Station has been a desirable place to call home. K-12 students in Atlantic Station attend Rivers Elementary School, Springdale Park Elementary School, Inman Middle School, and Midtown High School.

The neighborhood is smartly divided into distinct areas. There’s the Commons, where you’ll find many of the residential homes, condos, and apartments in Atlantic Station. There’s the District, the central shopping and dining area where residents can enjoy dinner and a movie, visit your favorite retailers or a museum. Finally, there’s The Village, anchored by Atlanta’s IKEA.
