HOME PARK
THE NEW DORMITORY
Welcome to Home Park, Atlanta.
Home Park is known as West Midtown Atlanta, because it is situated on the west side of the Downtown Connector. In the early 18th century, Home Park was developed as a housing area for blue-collar workers from the Atlantic Steel Mill (currently Atlantic Station), which is located adjacent to the neighborhood. In 1970s, the Georgia Tech expanded its campus by acquiring several blocks of residences in Home Park, converting it institutional use. The new development was meant to cover the growing number of students who needed housing close to campus, and the Home Park area became a popular alternative to the school dormitory. After the Atlantic Station was built, the neighborhood experienced both an increase in property values as well as a rapid influx of commercial development. While Home Park is mainly residential in nature, today the pedestrian-friendly neighborhood offers a plethora of great restaurants, retail stores, art galleries and service businesses. In addition, Home Park is home to large media organizations like CBS Atlanta, WGCL-TV and Turner Broadcasting Systems. Schools in the area are some of the highest performing ones in the city, with institutions ranging from pre-school to college level. Some of the schools include the Landon Center by Bright Horizons, The Children's Campus at Georgia Tech, Centennial Place Elementary and Inman Middle School. Older kids and young adults can attend the Grady High School, The Georgia Institute of Technology and the Savannah College of Art and Design.
