Mid-City Modern

ARTICLE BY: LEAH ALEXANDER

Evolving Homes and Lifestyles of Midtown Atlanta


While the South is still synonymous with ladies who luncheon, sweet tea and antebellum architecture, modern is the mission for many new home buyers in flourishing parts of Atlanta, which is why modern homesteads are cropping up like crazy.

Among these bustling boroughs in Midtown near the popular walking trail with restaurants, nightlife, street art and artists, the Beltline; Ponce City Market – a shopping and dining destination; and Mercedes Benz Stadium, host to the 2019 Super Bowl, are the Upper Westside, Hills Park, Underwood Park, and Home Park.

Never heard of them? That’s because these ever-changing areas are as dynamic as the people who live in them and are teeming with chic eateries, art, culture and higher-priced real estate than ever before.


If you’re hoping to call Hills Park or a nearby area home, here’s what you should know.

The number of active Modern home listings in this area was at a 5-year high in late 2019, in excess of a 400% increase, with new construction trailing closely behind at around a 385% increase.


On average, property values have climbed from the $250k range circa 2016 to some 2019 monthly home sale averages of upwards of $550k according to FMLS stats gathered by Atlanta real estate agent, LaDonna Suggs.


With these new price tags come custom interiors like these in a newly completed six-home development in Hills Park.


Light, airy and far from builder grade finishes, homes in this part of town are becoming synonymous with style and approachable sophistication.


If clean lines and modern takes on classic finishes are your cups of sweet tea, then you might be in for surprise and delight on the Upper Westside.
