Atlantic Station is a neighborhood on the northwestern edge of Midtown Atlanta, Georgia, United States comprising a retail district, office space, condominiums, townhomes and apartment buildings. First planned in the mid-1990s and officially opened in 2005, the neighborhood's 138 acres (558,000 m²) are located on the former brownfield site of the Atlantic Steel mill.HistoryAtlantic Station is located on the site of the Atlantic Steel mill, which opened in 1901. The steel mill was nearly closed in the mid-1970s, but it remained nominally operational primarily to avoid the huge costs it would have required to remediate the soil contamination present after years of operation.Developer Jim Jacoby, who also redeveloped Florida's Marineland, began putting the project together in 1997 when his company became the property contractor of the land. The redevelopment of the land into what is now Atlantic Station was financed largely by private investment, but was heavily supplemented by a special tax district to pay for city tax bonds for public utilities (streets, sidewalks, and sewers). The development was originally planned to include 15000000sqft of retail, office, residential space as well as 11acre of public parks. Its size encouraged the Postal Service to award the neighborhood its own ZIP code: 30363.

  • Atlantic station works well for business meetings. It also is an easy walk around for a meal or shopping to break the day up. They have a large parking area underground that works well for the area. 
  • Parking is easy with ample stroller friendly access. There is a Target, Old Navy, Dillard's and more. Many places to eat and shop of various price points. There is a faux grass area with a playground ...  read more »
  • I had some time to kill one evening and needed a bite to eat, so i looked this place up as it was only a few minutes from my hotel. I was glad i did. I walked the shop lined streets and did some windo...  read more »
  • We had the best time. Mommy daughter day out. We were treated well at every place we visited. Looking for cool kids shoes check out Journeys looking for great deal Old navy is it.
  • It's really hard to feel the vibes this area clearly wants to offer. Really just a good one stop for people coming from out of town. Parking is a little haphazard and stressful, if you don't have a lot of $$$ your day/night will amount of food OR shopping. On the good side a nice selection of restaurants and stores.
  • Since my office is located on site, it's a little difficult to feel the love. Atlantic Station is best for those out-of-towners looking for a one stop shop for food, entertainment and dining. But if you are here dailiy, your meal options will add up ($$$) pretty fast. Parking can be problematic if you don't arrive early enough and the loose bricks make it difficult to get around safely in heels. I like the concept, but if I had a choice I wouldn't be here more than 2-3 times a week.
  • This place is amazing. For someone passing by, highly recommend dropping by and hitting up Land of a Thousand Hills coffee shop. The guys there are awesome. Be sure to park at the under deck parking. You can get your ticket validated for up to 3 hours I believe.
  • Came here for a date to the Bodies Exhibit. If you are planning on using the underground parking deck, get there early so you can figure out where you need to go! Was very confusing at first. Enjoyed dinner at The Pig and Pearl. The green space in the center of Atlantic Station was a great place to sit and talk. Kids had an astro-terf space to play on while parents lined the perimeter. Security guard had to clear everyone out at 10:15pm because the area was closing for the night. There are strict curfew rules that appear to be enforced as much as possible. Heavy security presence monitoring traffic flow and crowd control. It's a nice place that does have a slight "fake" feel.
