The City of College Park is excited to unveil 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 to College Park: Six West.
Six West, which will be developed on reclaimed residential land just west of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, is set to officially break ground later this spring 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.
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 – both 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. Adjacent to the City of College Park Golf Course, which was awarded a $500,000 cleanup grant in mid-2019, Six West hopes to attract partners of all levels, from local businesses to international corporations, blending arts and entertainment with office space to meet all needs of both locals and travelers to Atlanta alike.
Six West will sit between Camp Creek Parkway, McDonald Avenue and Princeton Avenue – just minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson – and indicates yet another economic development milestone for south Atlanta. Paired with the GICC, Georgia’s second largest convention facility, along with Gateway Center Arena, home to the Atlanta Hawks’ G-League affiliate the College Park Skyhawks and WNBA Atlanta Dream, College Park continues to position itself as a true destination and facilitates positive economic growth. This project is anticipated to create thousands of jobs and strengthen the city’s reputation as a leading destination for commerce, livability and creativity.
