CityScape Looks South to Atlanta’s Next Hot Neighborhood
ATLANTA (May 19, 2017) – Imagine driving down I-85 South and exiting at Cleveland Avenue or University Avenue to get to your home – your new home – after a long day at work. Atlantans familiar with these neighborhoods’ unsafe reputation may have a hard time picturing themselves calling these communities home, but that is exactly what CityScape envisions for the city’s next wave of redevelopment.
“We’ve had our share of naysayers, but we feel the time to reclaim these neighborhoods is long overdue,” says Robb Jones, of CityScape. “The management of CityScape has had tremendous success in contributing to the revitalization of neighborhoods such as Reynoldstown and Summerhill, and we look forward to continuing that tradition with these two new south Atlanta communities, with many more to come in the future.”
While south Fulton County has experienced a past boom in growth, CityScape communities will offer a distinct location advantage over more southern areas of the county. Residents will be just minutes from Downtown Atlanta’s shopping, dining, entertainment and other key attractions. And for downtown professionals looking to break away from grueling commutes, CityScape communities offer an escape from the city’s notoriously long rush hour gridlock to the suburbs.
While the Southside neighborhoods currently lack the popular retail and dining districts common in other intown areas, Jones points out, “In Atlanta’s revitalized neighborhoods, when the residential growth continues, the commercial growth is quick to follow as it has already begun.”
Those looking to be among Atlanta’s next wave of urban pioneers in the city’s next hot community can start calling CityScape’s Southside communities home sweet home.
