Coming soon to the Atlanta BeltLine in Adair Park!

“Adair Park is Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret.”

On Friday, October 17th 2014, our Red Robin Group Agents and staff took a three hour tour of the Atlanta BeltLine.  We had an opportunity to view some incredible additions to the Atlanta BeltLine as well as find some incredible neighborhoods that should be on every agents “HOT” list.  This little neighborhood has some cute homes, and the close proximity to the Atlanta BeltLine is surely going to be a huge draw for buyers moving into town. 

There are few places in Atlanta, much less America, similar in style as the dwellings in Adair Park. They speak of an era when the residents were the heart of Atlanta’s middle class. They recall too, the grand days of the city’s most powerful real estate dynasty.

Construction begins in just a few weeks!

The Westside Trail, a 3-mile trail to be developed in the Atlanta BeltLine’s southwest corridor, will run from University Avenue in Adair Park north to Lena Avenue at Washington Park. For a half mile along White Street, the trail will use the existing West End Trail.

The project funding includes 14 points of entry (11 of which will be ADA-accessible) with ramp and stair systems, greenway, and preservation for future transit. The construction is expected to start in the fall of 2014.

History of Adair Park:

The bungalow suburb of Adair Park was developed between the 1890’s and the 1940’s, when Atlanta was transitioning from a “railroad town” to an urban area.  Shortly after the Civil War, Land speculators, notably George Washington Adair, John Thrasher and Thomas Alexander, began purchasing land in the area anticipating future growth.  To increase the land value, Adair joined Richard Peters in 1870 to form the Atlanta Street Railway company to provide horsecar access to the area.  He also established the Atlanta Real Estate Company, and continued purchasing land for development.  Adair’s company became the largest Real Estate developer of property in Atlanta before he died in 1889.  His sons, George and Forrest, continued the company and began the Adair Park subdivision in 1910.  Adair Park developed into a small working-class neighborhood of modest homes.
