These 26 projects will radically transform Memorial Drive
Atlanta Magazine | March 28, 2016

Since early 2014, the two-mile stretch of Memorial Drive east of the Downtown Connector has become the site of one of Atlanta's biggest development booms. Given its proximity to both downtown and the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail, an assortment of builders plans to spend north of $600 million-more than double the expected redevelopment costs for Turner Field-on more than two dozen projects along the former industrial corridor.

"We're going to see investment in this area for the foreseeable future," says Greg Giuffrida, Central Atlanta Progress's point person for Memorial Drive planning and outreach.

With more than 1,300 apartments and condos under development, Paces Properties CEO David Cochran envisions the strip becoming "the next Inman Park."
