A sprawling site where College Park officials previously envisioned the largest mixed-use development ever constructed south of Interstate 20 is up for grabs.

The City of College Park’s Business and Industrial Development Authority recently selected Stream Realty Partners—a national commercial real estate firm with a track record in quickly developing Atlanta neighborhoods—to market and sell the 311-acre parcel known as Six West.

Located just west of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the Six West property was previously called ATL Airport City. The scope changed over the years, but a masterplan approved by the College Park City Council in 2019 called for a mixed-use hub with enough density to double the size of Atlantic Station, costing in the ballpark of $1.5 billion.

College Park has finished assembling the property and completing entitlements for it. Its boundaries include the College Park Historic District to the east, Camp Creek Parkway to the south, Herschel Road to the west, and Redwine Avenue to the north.  

Stream, whose intown projects include the Lee + White District in West End and Centennial Yards’ first adaptive-reuse apartments, is being tasked with marketing the Six West site, seeking acceptable prices from potential buyers, and counseling College Park officials on comparable properties.

According to Stream officials, the Six West property can be purchased in total, as separate parcels, or as neighborhood districts.

College Park’s plan for the site stresses that any development should include live-work-play elements and remain accessible to the public, while also becoming a “global destination.”

Six West has been divided into five districts. Within its boundaries today are local and national restaurants, multiple hotels, greenspaces, retail stores, the upgraded Historic College Park Golf Course, and more. The development vision also calls for tech incubators, office space for international headquarters, medical offices, research centers, and local university satellite campuses, per Stream.

In an announcement this week, Stream officials pointed to the Georgia International Convention Center and new Gateway Center (home to the WNBA Atlanta Dream and Hawks’ NBA G League team, College Park Skyhawks), two MARTA stations, and access to Interstate 85 and the world’s busiest airport as additional perks around the southside city of 14,000 people.

College Park officials consider the partnership with Stream a step toward advancing the Six West vision.

“The iconic developments [Stream has] created across metro Atlanta reflect the vision we have for our community,” said College Park Mayor Bianca Motley Broom in a prepared statement. “We are thrilled they have partnered with us to help activate Six West and build on the exciting growth underway all around the airport.”
