There has been an ongoing discussion about what exactly to call the burgeoning areas that are somewhat loosely defined by the Marietta Street Artery, Howell Mill, Huff Road, Northside Drive, Tech Parkway, and Chattahoochee Avenue corridors.
Having lived here well over a year I've come to recognize that many have ventured into this area on fairly regular occasions, but still have a lack of agreement on what to call this portion of the west-side of in-town Atlanta. the area isn't quite one neighborhood but rather samplings of nearby neighborhoods, but it also seems to crave for some establishment within the city's multitude of characteristic in-town neighborhoods.
I'd be interested to see in what sorts of community programs and developments could become established as the area seeks to create a richer identity that builds upon the railroad roots that naturally wants to defines the borders- or do they?
Feel free to post comments and suggestions on what the area should be called- what helps to define the boundaries as well as what sort of events you would like to see happen for this areas.
