Atlantans who live and work in the Midtown area will have a new green space to call their own this spring. Real estate investment firm Jamestown has partnered with Midtown Alliance to open a “pop-up pocket park” next to John Marshall Law School.

Previously, the space housed two dilapidated, abandoned buildings. This new pop-up pocket park replaces these structures and will encompass the central area between 1412 West Peachtree Street and 10 18th Street, giving people in one of Midtown’s busiest areas a quarter-acre of green space to enjoy.

Plans for the park will preserve the large Magnolia tree on site and add green space, as well as add outdoor furnishings for casual dining, communing, and space for students to study in the park. John Marshall Law School will be contributing sustainable landscaping throughout the park, including drought-tolerant native plants. Winter jasmine, colorful purple vitex and red maple trees will surround the communal area.

The park will be the first physical incarnation of the new Greenprint Midtown plan to make the neighborhood an “urban eco-district.”
