On September 20th, a variety of restaurateurs, developers, and entrepreneurs will tour southwest Atlanta. They will meet at 884 Murphy Ave at 9am and head out from there. The purpose of this bus tour is to welcome the visitors into our community, visit multiple sites, introduce them to residents and inspire them to invest their businesses in our iSWAT neighbor-hoods.

Adair Park featured in Beltline News Story

The west side trail of the Atlanta Beltline is getting underway soon! One of our own neighbors, Michelle Rushing, was featured along with Adair Park in this WSBTV recent news story. Michelle is actually a 10+ year resident of Adair Park. A little disconcerting that the money goes away if they have not broken ground by the fall, but from neighborhood meetings that seems easily attainable. Watch the video for more information.

Saporta Report – Welcome to Adair Park!

saportareport2

Maria Saporta, long-time reporter in Atlanta writing for the Atlanta Business Chronicle as well as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, recently visited Adair Park as her son, David Saporta Luse, moved into our fair neighborhood. David was drawn here after meeting a few neighbors and falling in love with the house he purchased. Maria wrote a fantastic post about David’s move into Adair Park. She paints a great picture of our great neighborhood, one we all know to be true. She also asks a great question that many of our neighbors have asked – while the neighborhood is growing and revitalizing with the new Beltline development just around the corner – are we looking out for our longer tenured residents?

This is a fantastic neighborhood and truly a gem in Atlanta that many residents love. Welcome to Adair Park David!
