ABOUT SUMMERHILL

The area that became Summerhill was established in 1865 after the devastation of the Civil War. It became home to freed slaves and the majority of Atlanta‘s Jewish population, including Leo Frank, a Jewish pencil factory owner that was lynched in Marietta after being suspected of killing a young child worker.

Before World War II, Georgia Avenue was a thriving business district with stores and a movie theater. It became an enclave for the African-American community, despite segregation. But in the 1960s, “urban renewal” left neighborhoods bulldozed and the highway widened, pushing the area into disrepair.

LIVING IN SUMMERHILL

Summerhill is the redevelopment of Atlanta’s former Olympic stadium and surroundings. Encompassing 80 acres, the site is adjacent to downtown Atlanta with unrivaled access and visibility. Summerhill is walkable and bikeable; minutes from downtown, midtown, and the airport. A long-term, organic development beginning with preservation and rehabilitation. A vision of vibrant streetscapes combining culture, food, entertainment, academics, housing, and world-class offices.

SUMMERHILL`s $3.0 trillion economy is larger than that of any other state and is the largest sub-national economy in the world. If it were a country, SUMMERHILL would be the fifth-largest economy in the world, and the 36th-most populous as of 2017.

SUMMERHILL culture is considered a global trendsetter in popular culture, innovation, environmentalism, and politics. As a result of the state`s diversity and migration, SUMMERHILL integrates foods, languages, and traditions from other areas across the country and around the globe
