About Downtown Atlanta
Downtown Atlanta is the heart of the sprawling Metro Atlanta area and home to one of the largest business districts in the Southeast. The downtown area, with its numerous tourist attractions, entertainment centers, restaurants, hotels, and business sectors attracts millions of tourists every year while supporting hundreds of thousands of residents and business professionals on a daily basis.
The Downtown Atlanta area traces its roots back to 1826, when railroad surveyors began looking for a route between Milledgeville and Chattanooga. As a result of this survey and railroad construction, a town named Terminus was founded in 1837 in what is now Downtown Atlanta. In 1842, the thirty citizens of Terminus voted to change the town’s name to Marthasville in honor of then Governor Lumpkin’s daughter, Martha. Just five years later, in 1847, the town again changed names and became Atlanta.
The original downtown area had just seven streets: Peachtree Street, Whitehall Street, Marietta Street, Decatur Street, Pryor Street, Loyd Street (now Central Avenue), and Alabama Street.
Downtown Atlanta has grown significantly since those early days, and is now one of the largest business districts in the country with over 22 million square feet of office space.

Buckhead is anchored by an urban core of highrise office buildings, hotels, and condominiums centered around the intersection of Peachtree Road and Piedmont Road near Georgia State Route 400, Buckhead station, and Lenox Square. Buckhead is the third largest commercial center in Atlanta, behind Downtown and Midtown. Buckhead is a major commercial and financial center of the Southeast.
Residential Buckhead, comprised mostly of large single-family homes situated among dense forests and rolling hills, is among the most desirable and wealthiest places in Metro Atlanta.
Since at least the 1950s, Buckhead has been known as a district of extreme wealth, with the western and northern neighborhoods being virtually unrivaled in the Southeast. In 2011, The Gadberry Group compiled the list of the 50 wealthiest zip codes in the United States, ranking Buckhead's western zip code (30327) as the second wealthiest zip code in the South (behind Palm Beach's 33480) and the second wealthiest zip code east of California and south of Virginia. The same group reported the average household income at $280,631, with an average household net worth of $1,353,189.These 2011 figures are up from a similar 2005 study that pegged Buckhead as the wealthiest community in the South and the only settlement south of the Washington D.C. suburb of Great Falls, and east of the Phoenix suburb of Paradise Valley to be among the 50 wealthiest communities in the country. However, according to Forbes magazine, (30327) is the ninth-wealthiest zip code in the nation, with a household income in excess of $341,000.The Robb Report magazine has consistently ranked Buckhead one of the nation's 10 Top Affluent Communities due to the most beautiful mansions, best shopping, and finest restaurants in the Southeastern United States. Due to its wealth, Buckhead is sometimes promoted as the Beverly Hills of the East or Beverly Hills of the South in reference to Beverly Hills, California, an area to which it is often compared.
