Construction on Six West, the planned $1.5 billion College Park mixed-use, is officially underway after a groundbreaking event Thursday. The massive development is more than twice the size of Atlantic Station (which celebrates its 15th anniversary this month) at 311-acres — versus 138 for comparison.
Six West — originally called “Airport City” — will offer a mix of uses once complete: 2.3 million square feet of office, six hotels, and other amenities, 550,000 square feet of commercial space, 260 multi-family units, 100 single-family units, and 120 townhomes.
The project’s first phase is expected to bring one of the six planned hotels and some of the apartments, and would open in late-2025 or even early-2026. The multi-phased project in its entirety would take nearly 15 to 20 years to complete, likely finishing sometime between 2035 and 2040.
Thursday’s event was Emceed by Shannon James, president and CEO of the Aerotropolis Alliance. There were also remarks from City officials, development partners, and others. Officials briefly removed their masks to commemorate the moment the ground was ceremonially broken. 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.
