South Downtown is a neighborhood that's been long ignored and overlooked. But it's brimming with potential. The buildings are there, the density is there, and the people are arriving. South Downtown is waking up.
Our hosts at the Center for Civic Innovation are kicking off a long-term effort to shape the future of South Downtown, and Code for Atlanta is partnering with them on this goal.
We're going to get out of the building and take some walking tours of the area to get a real feel for it, then we'll hear from those who live, work, and play in South Downtown. Based on what we learn, we'll then get to business and start hacking on projects. There will be maps to make and data to open.
This is a rare opportunity to help revitalize a neighborhood at the perfect moment. South Downtown will be a great neighborhood in the near future, and you'll help shape it at CodeAcross Atlanta.
Getting There: The M. Rich Building on 115 MLK Jr. Blvd. is one block south of the Five Points MARTA station. A parking deck is next to the building on the corner of Pryor and MLK. Parking costs $3/day on weekends.
