The property sits at the edge of an industrial area, just north of the historic Boulevard neighborhood, one of Athens’ original streetcar suburbs. The railroad line it borders is still active, providing a tangible connection to its industrial past. It is a quick drive from downtown and includes many community amenities in easy walking distance, including the nearby Normaltown commercial district, the new UGA Health Sciences campus at the former Navy Supply Corps School, and Chase Street Elementary School.
Close to the Athens’ perimeter expressway (which abuts it on the back property line) and served by a public bus line, the site provides convenient access to multiple transportation options. Several nearby converted industrial properties border the same rail line – including the Chase Park Warehouses and the Leathers Building – and further enhance the site’s potential, showing that Athens can support this type of development.
