The City of College Park Tuesday unveiled that Six West will be the official name of the forthcoming “Airport City” project, a 311-acre mixed-use development set to bring retail, residential, hotel, entertainment and class-A office space.
The naming approval comes after a Mayor and City Council meeting last week.
Six West, which will be developed on reclaimed residential land just west of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, is set to officially break ground late-spring 2020 on Camp Creek Parkway, across from the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) and newly opened Gateway Center Arena.
The property is being developed by the City’s Business and Industrial Development Authority, Clearly College Park, with public-private partnerships.
“West of downtown College Park and just west of the airport, Six West covers six historic avenues, all of which pay homage to five Ivy League schools and civic leader John Wesley,” Artie Jones III, director of economic development for the City of College Park and executive director of Clearly College Park, said in Tuesday’s announcement.
“We aim to memorialize the site’s past while developing its future. This development is a testament to the redefined economic growth of College Park, and we hope its thunderous impact on our reputation and economy stands to share the next 100 years.”
The master plan was approved in August 2019 and anticipates up to 3 million square feet of class-A office space, up to six hotels, 548,000 square feet of retail (restaurants and shopping), 450 residential units including apartments, townhomes, single-family homes and senior living, plus additional mixed-use space.
One hotel and one residential project are currently under contract.
