Exploring ATL's "Ring of Fire" Projects
A mind-blowing collection of large-scale real estate projects that are transforming Downtown ATL right before our eyes...
This is Part Two of a 2-part newsletter that describes ATL’s Ring of Fire. Part One provides an overview of what the Ring of Fire is and why it’s important. Part Two (below) goes into detail about ten transformative projects that are planned or being built along the Ring of Fire. I also created an interactive map to help you explore this area. Thank you.
Now entering the “Ring of Fire”
The ATL Ring of Fire boundary (denoted with a black line on this map) is somewhat arbitrary. The area is roughly defined by Northside Drive on the west, North Avenue (appropriately) to the north, Marietta Street to the east, and Whitehall and McDaniel Streets to the south/southwest.
My map includes ten transformative projects: Underground Atlanta, South Downtown, Freight House Flats, Centennial Yards, Artisan Yards, Smith & Porter, Reverb Hotel, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, State Farm Arena, and the Margaritaville Hotel. The map also identifies twelve additional projects that are just outside the RoF boundary.
