Memorial Drive Corridor: A New Boomtown Just East of Downtown Atlanta

By Christa DiLalo, Research Director

Atlanta’s Memorial Drive is one of the most history-rich thoroughfares in the city. Spurred by the success of the Eastside BeltLine trail, more than 1.3 million square feet of new projects or redevelopments have been completed since 2015. The ongoing demand for new office, multifamily, and retail space, coupled with the construction of the Southside trail, have primed the area for continued growth.

A new report from Cushman & Wakefield Atlanta’s research team shows the current and planned developments and improvements along the Memorial Drive corridor, spanning just over two miles from Capitol Avenue to Moreland Avenue, where $1.5 billion is currently invested in the development pipeline. The report also encompasses the latest updates on the Memorial Drive Greenway and potential redevelopment of the CSX site known as Hulsey Yards.
