As part of ongoing Best of Atlanta 2022 coverage, Urbanize’s second-annual Best Atlanta Neighborhood tournament is kicking off with 16 places vying for the prestige of being called the city’s greatest. (Note: Seeding from 1 to 16 was determined by reader nominations this month, so no pitchforks, please.)
For each Round 1 contest, voting will be open for just 24 hours. Please, let’s keep the tourney fun and positive, as one neighborhood rises above the rest in very public fashion. The eliminations begin now!
CAPITOL VIEW (2)
Highest home sale of 2022: $595K, for a revived 1920s bungalow a block from the BeltLine
Lowest: $200K, for a three-bedroom fixer-upper
Median sales price decrease year-over-year: 7 percent (November)
As one of two Best Atlanta Neighborhood contestants this year with direct Southside Trail access, Capitol View has not surprisingly undergone recent changes both small and large, but its abundant greenspace and enviable old housing stock remains. On Sylvan Road there’s Triton Yards, a food truck park where nobody’s counting calories (thankfully), while up the road RangeWater Real Estate’s rising The Vivian project promises to bring hundreds of new residents to the Capitol View mix. Also in 2022, a 58-unit affordable housing venture broke ground in the shadow of a MARTA station, while another new building with throwback vibes aims to add workforce housing along Metropolitan Parkway.
As nominator Courtney put it last week: “Capitol View/Capitol View Manor is a secret gem of the city. Easy access to all parts of metro Atlanta, BeltLine, a cozy community, [with] active community members. It is home to the new Vivian development, the Atlanta Music Project, Perkerson Park (which has the largest disc golf courses in the city), some of Atlanta’s most beautiful historic homes, and so much more!!”
This tourney has zero criteria, of course, but that certainly sounds like the makings of a top neighborhood.
EAST ATLANTA (15)
Highest home sale of 2022: $925K, for a modern-style four-bedroom with 3,600 square feet
Lowest: $289K, for a 1950s fixer-upper
