Welcome to West End, Neighborhood of the Year
Atlanta’s West End is a vibrant community known for the diversity of its residents, who represent many different economic, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. The spirit of neighborhood is reflected in a strong sense of community and enthusiastic resident involvement.
Named 2017 & 2015 Curbed Cup Champion and the hottest neighborhood in Atlanta of 2016 by Redfin, the burgeoning, yet historic community of West End is quickly becoming one of Atlanta’s most talked about and sought after neighborhoods for young professionals and families.
Whether you are seeking a pedestrian- and bike-friendly community along the Atlanta BeltLine or you’re looking for a neighborhood convenient to major thoroughfares, West End has it all.

From WABE Atlanta read about the West End, Past and Present… One of the oldest homes in Atlanta is about a mile and a half south of downtown in a community called the West End. It’s a two story greyish-blue home with white trim, a front porch, and a fireplace.
Oak trees shade the yard and stairs lead to the property from a charming brick sidewalk. The home sits back on its lot behind a wrought iron fence on Peeples Street, although that specific fence wasn’t there when the house was built in 1856. Read more.
West End bungalow renovation took teamwork and patience, owner says. Emi Piez originally thought she would buy a turnkey house. When she saw the eclectic and historic homes in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood, with its access to MARTA and the Beltline, she decided to tackle a renovation. Read more.
The West End MARTA station is more than just a stop for commuters. It’s a hub of sorts. Located at the bustling intersection of Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard and Lee Street.
The trains that pass by follow almost the exact same route the streetcar once did. Back when West End was one of the city’s first suburbs. Read more.
The West End has as strong a sense of self as it does of community. Despite all the change that has happened in the neighborhood in the past few years, the neighbors remain committed to their diverse and inclusive community.
WABE’s “Only In Atlanta” series takes a deep-dive look at life in West End. View the video.
The City of Atlanta’s Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), the Department of City Planning (DCP), and West End Neighborhood Development (WEND) are seeking creative professional artists to propose designs for two street murals. The street murals will reside on the West End section of White Street SW as a part of the City’s Placemaking Program.
A monetary award of $2,000 will be awarded for each design. The deadline to submit your proposal is Noon (12 pm) on Friday, Dec. 6, 2019.
The City of Atlanta’s Placemaking Program is a community-driven initiative to transform Atlanta streets and public spaces. The program also works to improve transportation safety while enhancing the physical, cultural, and social identities of our public areas.
Local and regional professional visual artists are encouraged to propose street mural designs for the intersections of White Street SW and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard SW and White Street SW and Hopkins Street SW.
There is no expectation of the artist(s) to install the artwork. The DCP will procure a contractor to install the murals per the finalized design.
For any questions regarding the project or the proposal submission, please contact Chris McIntosh at email@example.com.
