ENGLISH AVENUE
A GREAT PLACE TO INVEST
Welcome to English Avenue, Atlanta.
English Avenue is closely linked with Vine City, because the two more or less intertwine. Technically, they both make up the same neighborhood unit and are often cited together in regards to shared issues and redevelopment schemes. The area of English Avenue has a population of around 3,600 people, and was founded in 1891 by the son of Atlanta mayor James W. English. It was originally developed as a white blue-collar neighborhood, with Simpson Road situated as a race barrier. Today, the city has largely invested in revitalizing the area to promote a more positive image. Multiple efforts are underway to encourage people to purchase property around English Avenue and Vine City. In fact, the focus on increased home ownership is so serious that Invest Atlanta provides up to 10% of the down payment on a buyers first house. Home Atlanta 4.0 is another funding organization, which offers up to 5% of the house cost, but waves the first-time buyer requirement. In addition, Invest Atlanta and the Arthur M. Blank Foundation has partnered in a project to provide $30 million in funds for non-profit organizations aimed to transform the two neighborhoods. The conjoined neighborhoods of English Avenue and Vine City have recently begun a new tradition, in the form of the Historic Westside Village Festival. This festive event features educational seminars, food vendors, concerts and fun kids activities, with all proceeds going to local charities. Another annual event is the English Avenue Festival of Lights, a community exhibition encouraging people to be the light in their neighborhood. The festival features a Children's pavilion, free food and drinks, and highlights local non-profits.
