Atlantic Station is a new complex in Atlanta, directly west of Midtown. Opened in 2005, its property's location was once nothing more than an old steel mill, which a portion of it was preserved as a monument in its central park. This mixed-use development is one of the largest live, work, and play areas in Atlanta, and has even earned the motto "a city within a city".
Atlantic Station is accessible by a free shuttle provided that departs from the MARTA Arts Center Station approximately every 5-15 minutes. The MARTA Bus Route #23 also serves Atlantic Station. By car, from Interstate 75/85 Northbound exit at 14th Street, from Interstate 75 Southbound exit at 16th Street, and from Interstate 85 Southbound exit at 17th Street.
Anchored by Dillard's and Ikea, shopping includes chain stores such as DSW, City Sports, Express, and Old Navy, as well as nani Sensorium. There is also the Taste Clothing Boutique, and White House/Black Market for women.
