The Amazing, Unstoppable Growth of Midtown ATL

Midtown Atlanta is one of the hottest markets in the country right now. Whether looking at the growth in business ventures, development, tourism, or population, it’s plain to see that the heart of one of America’s fastest growing cities is the best place to live, work, and invest. 

Midtown Atlanta has been described as “a mecca for the creative class and a nexus for technology and innovation.” With a strong and growing population of talented working minds, creative entrepreneurs, and daring, clever investors, midtown has positioned itself as the neighborhood of choice for exciting opportunity and shared success. 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics noted that from June 2018 – June 2019, the professional and business services industry added 19,200 jobs, up 3.7% for the largest growth with over 10,000 of those jobs in the professional, scientific, and technical services sector. That’s above the national growth of only 2.2%. And in midtown specifically, over 17,000 jobs were created from 2015-2017. This growth isn’t slowing, as development in Midtown surges with new working and living developments on every corner.

And Curbed Atlanta marks 13 developments to keep an eye on this fall. Colony Square, midtown’s first mixed use center, will be adding new office space, parking spaces, and over 160,000 square feet of retail.
