Summerhill is a neighborhood directly south of Downtown Atlanta between the Atlanta Zoo and Turner Field. It is bordered by the neighborhoods of Grant Park, Mechanicsville, and Peoplestown. For those that crave InTown living and urban vibrancy, it’s still a relatively affordable option (2016). This is also an area that experienced a solid revitalization leading up to the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and hosted the opening & closing ceremonies at Turner Field (RIP 1996-2016).
In early 2017, Georgia State University and a private development team purchased Turner Field. While plans are still in the works, the 68-acre site is expected to house future Georgia State football games as well as a multi-million dollar mixed use complex.
