Proximity to Little Five Points and Old Fourth Ward
Very walkable and bike-friendly


Limited apartment inventory causing increased rental rates in the area
Rush hour traffic

With its prime location just about three miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, Poncey-Highland is a popular neighborhood offering residents and visitors a variety of art galleries, dining options, and locally-owned shops. The nearby Ponce City Market provides drinks, desserts and a wide range of cuisine from famous chefs, local restaurants and pop-ups. However, most of the retail and dining options are located on Ponce de Leon Avenue to the north. The Eastside Beltline Trail features live musicians, murals, sculptures, and areas to relax while connecting Poncey-Highland to Reynoldstown and other popular areas. Stretching across most of the neighborhood, Freedom Park is home to the Poncey-Highland Playground, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, and vast green spaces to gather.

Although very walkable and bike-friendly, Poncey-Highland also provides residents with MARTA train and bus access at the North Avenue and Park-Reynolds transit stations. Mostly consisting of single-family homes, renters are lucky to find availability at one of Poncey-Highland’s very few loft buildings, and can expect to pay higher rental rates because of the area’s limited availability. 

Don’t just take our word for it. See what our friends say!

One of the most walkable neighborhoods in ATL where you can expect to see lots of cute bungalows and tree-lined streets.
