Gains in the Gulch – New Phase Brings Centennial Yards Closer to Completion

Atlantans have been anticipating transformation of the gulch for quite some time. From unusable wasteland to a revenue generating, downtown transforming, excitement providing entertainment district.

They’ve seen this happen before in other places, with particular irritation over losing the Braves to the north metro, and the rather expedient development of The Battery. These things do take time, and the landscape of the gulch presents a particular challenge. Just keep us up to date with realistic schedules, I say. Here’s an update.

Centennial Yards is intent on completing the project by the time Atlanta hosts The World Cup in 2026.

“We partnered with one of the best architecture firms in the world, Gensler, to create a stunning site plan that integrates beautifully with nearby transit (multiple MARTA stations, cycling lanes, and the new BRT line). The district will feature communal spaces & walkways, interwoven with greenery and pedestrian-focused design elements. It will also pay tribute to the site’s rich railroad heritage.”

They’re hoping to break ground this summer on the first phase, an 8 acre project which is just 15% of the total planned real estate. This section is located in a strategic spot, immediately accessible to both Mercedes-Benz Stadium and State Farm Arena.

The 8 acres spot will host 470,000 sq. ft. of entertainment, retail, and restaurant space, including a flagship hotel.
