Neighborhood Info

This map shows street art, murals, and graffiti in the Upper West Side of Atlanta.  Why would anyone go looking for street art in Atlanta’s Upper West Side?  It’s nothing but warehouses and industrial parks right??? … WRONG!!!  Anyone who hasn’t driven down Marietta Street for a few years is in for a surprise!  Block after block of dingy industrial property is being replaced by bright and shiny new lofts and mixed use developments.

Recent developments in this swath of Atlanta between Buckhead and the Chattahoochee River represent a one billion dollar investment. And this investment is paying dividends in the neighborhood attracting high-end shopping, restaurants, and upscale residential housing.  Plans are also in the works to turn the area bordering the Chattahoochee into a residential  river walk and waterfront destination.

Street Art in the Neighborhood

The Outerspace Project has recently favored the Upper West Side neighborhood for their annual gift of street art to Atlanta. There is a concentration of murals on and near Howell Mill Road. Recently, street art has appeared on Donald Lee Howell Parkway. One of the best collections of murals is at the Atlantic Station multi-use development including the large scale mural of a hawk by Thomas Turner looming over the I-75/85 connector. Street art is mostly spread out all over the Upper West Side. So, you’ll never see all the murals just casually walking down the street. But, follow the map and you will see everything. If you are visiting Atlantic Station and have a little extra time, check out the murals in the nearby Midtown neighborhood. Midtown is just over I-75/85 from the Upper West Side.
