PEACHTREE CENTER
HOTEL CONVENTION BLOCK
Welcome to Peachtree Center, Atlanta.
This neighborhood is located in Downtown Atlanta, with most structures designed by renowned architect John C. Portman. One of the more defining characteristics of Peachtree is the network of pedestrian sky bridges that hover above street-level. There are mixed feelings around the bridges, and critics mean that they discourage pedestrian street life. Peachtree Center was originally meant to be the new downtown, but instead it evolved as its own eclectic district with convention hotels, shopping galleries and office buildings. The neighborhood stands out with its distinct and united architecture, in a style that was modern during the 1970's. The most notable feature however, is the sky-bridges and the fact that they conveniently allow a new form of pedestrian activity. Visitors who come to the this heart of downtown area can choose between a large plethora of shops, restaurants and services, including Chik-fil-A, Naturalizer, CVS, Caribou Coffee and many more. But the commercial district isn't the largest source of economy in Peachtree the hotel-conventions are. Even during times when Downtown Atlanta deteriorated in the mid 80s, Peachtree thrived as a hotel-convention district; and hence, this is what the neighborhood is mainly known for. Peach Tree Center is also hoe to one of the busiest stations on the Red/Gold MARTA Lines, with over 15,000 people passing through daily. The station is also the deepest one in the network, laying 120 feet below Peachtree Street.
