Welcome to West End, a residential community, originally established as White Hall in 1835. Located just 3 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta, where Interstates 75/85 and Interstate 20 meet, West End was one of the first streetcar suburbs of Atlanta.
Today, West End is a unique urban community that brings together the perfect mix of the conveniences of intown living with southern hospitality, old-fashioned neighborliness and a strong historic identity. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and one of Atlanta’s Historic Districts, West End is amid a sort of renaissance. Many homes in West End are historic and represent a variety of turn-of-the-century architectural styles, and resident homeowners are proudly and painstakingly restoring these houses to their original glory.
West End is a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood, with many trees as old as some of the historic houses. West End boasts five City of Atlanta parks and more than a mile-long stretch of the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail. Cost of living is still surprisingly affordable in West End as compared to similar historic neighborhoods across Atlanta, and the commercial district affords tremendous growth potential for new and existing businesses. Furthermore, West End has great access to public transportation options and will also be one of the first residential neighborhoods in Atlanta to offer a Bike Share terminal when the program officially launches in mid-2016.
Families with children residing in the West End have a variety of public educational opportunities, in addition to Atlanta Public Schools (Washington High School Cluster). Multiple high performing and award-winning charter schools also serve West End and surrounding communities, including a KIPP Metro Atlanta School, The Kindezi School and Westside Atlanta Charter School.
Ask just about any resident and they’ll tell you West End life is second to none. Interested in learning more about the West End?
