Hospitality Rising: Touring Midtown's Hotel Development

Midtown's hotel industry is booming, with over 1,000 hotel rooms in the pipeline adding to the 4,000+ hotel rooms already in the 1.2 sq. mile core. Two hotel projects are already well under construction, so we decided to take a close-up look.

“TECHnology Tour” Offers Inside Look at Midtown’s Startup Scene

In the heart of Midtown, Georgia Tech’s Technology Square teems with talent, companies, and big ideas. Why? The neighborhood has a royal flush of startup incubators and accelerators, coworking spaces, corporate innovation centers, research labs, convenient access to top research university Georgia Tech (and the list goes on)—all within eight square blocks.

In an effort to bring Midtown Alliance members inside the world of Tech Square startups, Midtown Alliance organized “The Startup Story” as the first tour in its Midtown TECHnology Tour event series. Held on May 17, the event offered more than 70 attendees a behind-the-scenes look at some of the personalities, projects, spaces and companies involved in Midtown’s bustling startup scene. Read More »

MARTA’s Arts Center Station is Midtown’s busiest MARTA rail stop, and has become a destination in its own right for the nearly 7,000 people who pass through the station on a daily basis.

To celebrate this station as a gateway into the District, Midtown Alliance partnered last year with MARTA, the High Museum of Art, and local artists to enhance the plaza-turned-“Porch” at Arts Center Station. Through this partnership, Midtown Alliance commissioned site-specific art from international artist and High Museum’s Artist-in Residence Jaime Hayon. Building on The Porch’s success in 2016, a new round of activations is headed for The Porch this summer. Read More »
