Poncey-Highland Service Area for SafeAir Certified Mold Inspection Inc.
With easy access to Candler Park, Freedom Park and Piedmont Park by way of the Eastside Trail, Poncey-Highland is fast becoming one of Atlanta’s most walkable and connected communities. President Jimmy Carter’s library is a centerpiece of the area, as are popular destinations such as the Plaza Theater, the Clermont Hotel, the Majestic Diner and Manuel’s Tavern, all legacies of the neighborhood’s original development.
PONCEY-HIGHLAND and nearby were initially developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle and later oil in PONCEY-HIGHLAND. The construction of the Interstate Highway System reinforced PONCEY-HIGHLAND`s prominence as a transportation hub, with four major interstate highways converging in the city and a fifth interstate loop around it. PONCEY-HIGHLAND then developed as a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways and the construction of PONCEY-HIGHLAND International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.
LIVING IN PONCEY-HIGHLAND
Poncey-Highland (PoHi) is a neighborhood near and dear to the Environs Team’s hearts. Both Dawn and John spent plenty of late nights in the 90s in the local bars, ending up eating “breakfast” at the Majestic Diner at 3am. Just down the road is Manuel’s Tavern – the meeting place for local liberals and, which, famously hosted a huge inauguration party when President Obama first took office back in Jan 2009. Manuel’s was recently taken apart and reassembled to allow for future development options. John has more to say about this Atlanta icon in his review. We have friends and clients who have lived in PoHi for years. It’s exciting to have so much to write about in this fabulous community!
