Downtown Atlanta real estate is highly popular and sought after, since it nestles at the very heart of this vibrant city, and is the heart of the city of Atlanta, being the area first developed over a hundred and seventy years ago as a railroad route, and was originally called Terminus as a direct connection to its railroad origins. Changing its name twice, from Marthasville and then finally to Atlanta, it then became the state capitol, but holds on to both its railroad links, being very well connected through its rapid rail service, known as MATAS, and likewise to its history.

It is the Downtown district which is the more influential financial area of the city, and is home to a wide variety of buildings, styles and architectures, demonstrating clearly its long history. Elegantly designed and well crafted Victorian mansions grace the tree lined avenues, along with among the most sought after office space and high rise apartments anywhere in the city.

There are six distinct areas within Downtown Atlanta. These each have their own particular characteristics. If you are looking to purchase Downtown real estate, then you may well want to have some sense of what each area has to offer. The first district is known as SoNo, formerly called Bedford-Pine, and this used to become a fairly under-developed region, although a considerable amount of investment has taken place here lately, with some older buildings being replaced with newer developments, including some very smart condos. This area is home to the tallest building in the city, the Bank of America Plaza, has good links to the remaining part of the city through the rail link, and is gaining a reputation as becoming a chic area, although currently one of the quieter regions.
The Railroad district has been so called by the very property developers who've been seeking to improve this area, and help it become much more closely related to the rest of the Downtown area. Consequently, transport links are much better, and the property is new, well designed and very smart. A quiet, but increasingly thriving district, this is undoubtedly one to make money on real estate investment.
The Five-Points district is, as the name suggests, the point where all main streets converge, and is thus the very centre of the Downtown district. Predominantly commercial, and very bustling, this area is home to some very well situated condos, that place you at the very heart of this community. The Fairlie-Poplar area is primarily commercial, and is a good site for enterprises and office space, although the Georgia State University has a large amount of accommodation sites for students, and it's a good area to consider for students and young people, as property is fairly cheap compared to other areas.
If you are looking to obtain some Downtown Atlanta real estate at a very good price, and are looking at becoming part of a growing community, the Centennial Hill area offers just such an opportunity. This area was set to have a number of important developments, most of whom were scrapped, but with the Georgia Aquarium project being situated close by, it is this district which is due to have over a billion dollars' worth of investment taking place quite soon! This means that getting in early is likely to afford you a fantastic deal, and a major opportunity, if you are willing to accept the long term developments and projects likely to be taking place.
For those looking for downtown Atlanta loft or condo opportunities, then the famous Castleberry Hill district is ideal, and because it has been classed a landmark district is protected from very much development. Consequently it has managed to maintain its historic charm and cultural identity, being home to many older buildings, and a lot of cultural venues such as theatres and galleries.

This really is the heart of the city, and one that is beating ever stronger.
