The City of College Park on Thursday, October 15, will break ground on its long-planned Six West development. An official ceremony featuring Emcee Shannon James, president and CEO of the Aerotropolis Alliance, alongside remarks from City officials, development partners, and more, will kick off the 311-acre mixed-use development’s construction. The South Atlanta development when complete will offer retail, residential, entertainment, and office space.
Six West is being developed by the City’s business and industrial development authority, Clearly College Park, with public-private partnerships, and will be located between Camp Creek Parkway, McDonald Avenue, and Princeton Avenue. The master plan anticipates up to 2.3 million square feet of Class-A office space, up to six hotels, and 548,000 square feet of retail — both restaurants and shopping — plus residential, including an estimated 260 multifamily units, 100 single-family units, and 120 townhomes. The City has hosted public Zoom meetings to retrieve input from area residents on design, layout, and more.
Six West developers in July released a new logo and renderings for the project. “Seeing the logo come to fruition is just another step toward this project coming to life,” City of College Park Mayor Bianca Motley Broom said at the time of the logo release earlier this year. “Incorporating our residents’ voices is key – we want Six West to be a resounding success for our entire community. It represents a renaissance of not only our city but the Southern crescent of metro Atlanta.”
