The enjoyment of Intown stores, restaurants, cultural venues, green spaces, amenities and the proximity to workplaces, such as the Atlanta Medical Center, attract many residents to the Old Fourth Ward, according to Kit Sutherland, president of the Fourth Ward Alliance. “I can leave my house and within a few minutes be at the Historic Fourth Ward Park or at the Atlanta BeltLine. The ample green spaces contribute greatly to the quality of life here.”
“Not to sound too much like a booster, but we’ve really got it all,” said Matthew Garbett, president of Fourth Ward Neighbors. “We've got walking and biking trails with the Freedom Park Path and the BeltLine; we've got great parks (Freedom Park, Historic Fourth Ward Park and Central Park); lots of smaller parks; two dog parks are coming online; we've got all the history of the King Birthplace and the Sweet Auburn District; we can walk to the finest dining and entertaining in the city along Edgewood and Highland; and we've got more coming with the opening of Ponce City Market. Also, all our schools are within walking distance. And if for some reason you need to leave the neighborhood, we're a five-minute drive from anywhere. And that's if you don't bike or hop on the soon-to-open streetcar. For two years in a row, we were named the best biking neighborhood.”
The $200 million Ponce City Market is scheduled to open in 2014 in the historic Sears, Roebuck & Company building with 300,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 450,000 square feet of office space and 260 resident units. In general, the Old Fourth Ward has a vibrant condominium, loft and townhouse market but the neighborhood also has single-family homes “from original 1920s shotguns to remarkably compatible new construction,” said Garbett. The homes generally range in price from the mid $100,000s to the $400,000s.
The public schools are Hope-Hill Elementary, Inman Middle and Grady High. Intown Charter is also in the Old Fourth Ward.
