About Atlanta

Serving as the capital of Georgia, Atlanta is a beautiful place on the south of the imposing Appalachian Mountains to live, work, go to school, raise a family or just visit. Atlanta was almost burnt to the ground during the Civil War but managed to bounce back and become a city with strong insurance, finance, manufacturing, communications, and retail sectors, and a place many large corporations like Coca-Cola call home.

At the moment, the U.S. Census estimates the city of Atlanta to have a population of more than 486,000, with the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta GA Metro Area population exceeding 5.8 million - making it the 9th largest metro area in the United States.

Relocating to Atlanta

Atlanta receives a large number of people from all over the country who choose to move to the city for a variety of reasons. Yet, housing remains affordable despite the high demand so you will find plenty of accommodation options to either rent or buy.

Compared to the national average, unemployment is slightly higher in Atlanta. Nevertheless, the presence of a wealth of companies that are headquartered here (Delta Airlines and UPS, for example) provide enough job opportunities for those that seek employment. After all, Atlanta is the city that has the 3rd largest concentration of Fortune 500 organizations.

Tip: If you’re relocating your business to Atlanta or simply moving to a nearby location, you can rent comfortable and affordable office space, or use our commercial warehouse spaces as a temporary or long-term storage solution for your business inventory.

What is even more charming about Atlanta is that although it is densely populated, green spaces occupy a big portion of the city, offering lots of opportunities for recreational activities. As for those into sports, Atlanta is a great sports town featuring the Falcons, Hawks, Braves, Dream, United FC and several great college teams.

Atlanta Neighborhoods

While staying in Atlanta, three neighborhoods definitely deserve a visit, each for its own special reason:

  • Midtown - Home to Piedmont Park, a favorite go-to place for families with kids and the grounds where most of the festivals take place, Midtown is the beating heart of Atlanta and the place that combines business with architecture and art.
  • Buckhead – This Atlanta neighborhood is sometimes referred to as the “Beverly Hills of the East” due to the high-end shopping streets, top-notch restaurants, and luxury hotels located in this affluent district.
  • Sweet Auburn – The birthplace (and burial grounds) of Martin Luther King Jr. and the site that houses the International Walk of Fame where you can find the shoe prints of iconic figures of the civil rights movement. Sweet Auburn was pronounced a national landmark in 1976.
  • Westside or West Midtown – The location with a rich history and quaint cobbled, tree-lined paths. Beautiful, restored historical buildings now serving as hip dining facilities or trendy lofts adorn the streets. Many people say that strolling the old alleyways gives them an old-world sensation when horse-drawn carriages were the only transportation seen crossing the roads.

Tip: Self-storage units are a great option to consider for those items you don’t use often (Christmas decorations, etc.) and seasonal items (camping gear, etc.) as well as jewelry, motorcycles, cars, and electronics. No matter where you move in Atlanta, we have self-storage units conveniently located off of the main roads and interstates such as I-75, I-85, and I-285. You can find us near the Perimeter Mall ( facility #847 ), Mercedes-Benz Stadium ( facility #778 and facility #407 ), the Waffle House Museum ( facility #378 ), and 20 minutes from Suntrust Park (facilities #56 , #289 and #45 ). We extend South in the city, too, as far as Peachtree City as well as Riverdale (facilities #30 and #44 ) and College Park.

Attending one of the many colleges or universities in the greater Atlanta area? We’ve got convenient locations for you, too. Facility #778 is only a four-minute drive up Decatur for Georgia State students and facility #412 is only five minutes away from Kennesaw State University.

From homes at affordable prices to deluxe, gated communities, the city has it all. And, even though the prices have slightly spiked the past few years, they are still considerably lower than the country’s median.

Tip: Self-storage units also provide you with space when you are moving to another city or renovating your home or during peak times when you need to stock extra inventory. However, it is not uncommon to see individuals running an entire business from a self-storage unit in Atlanta.
