Underground will transform the historic four block radius into a sustainable community where people can live, work, create, and explore. The groundwork for this forward-thinking neighborhood will enhance the social fabric of downtown by bringing living spaces, commerce, and vibrant culture back to where Atlanta’s first mile was established. Underground will provide downtown neighbors with unique shops, restaurants, markets, entertainment, and a variety of workspace options. Residents and visitors alike will experience Underground feeling welcomed, energized, and inspired.
With a vision for higher density hotel, office, retail and additional housing, block 1 will be the last phase of the four-block transformation.
Here WRS will create a place, a 175,000 sf ecosystem that fosters creativity and supports Atlanta’s growing community of makers and doers.
220 student apartments and 184 affordable apartments on top of 150,000 sf of new retail. Delivering late 2020.
More than 40k sf of retail storefronts line Upper Alabama to Peachtree Street and currently house many long-term Underground Atlanta tenants.
