A new building on the Westside called Theory West Midtown has broken ground this month. It will consist of two 5-level apartment buildings, a retail space, and parking.
The builder, developed by Peak Campus, will be reserved for Georgia Tech students. There will be one to five bedroom apartments that are fully furnished.
There will be a resort-style pool, roof top deck, fitness center, business center, study/conference areas, package locker system, and bike storage.
The retail space will be 10,500 square feet. Raku Ramen has signed a lease so far. The building is set to open in the fall of 2019. The exact address is 806 Marietta St. To see what it’s like to live on the Westside, see here.
The Painted Duck, a bowling and gaming establishment in the Westside’s Stockyards, opened a few weeks ago.
Started by the same owners of The Painted Pin in Atlanta, The Painted Duck has old-school games like Duckpin bowling (with 16 lanes), shuffleboard, horseshoe, Belgian feather bowling, and more!
For food, the cuisine centers on small plates and wood-fired meats, signature cocktails, artisanal wines, and local and craft beers.

The plans for Phase One of the Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry were unveiled last week.
The park which will be 100 acres larger than Piedmont Park will “transform a historic property on the Westside and bring something incredible to the community to all of Atlanta,” Mayor Reed said.
Phase One includes a gateway entrance at the intersection of Johnson Road and Grove Park Place on the north side of the park. The restoration of Grove Park Place will include resurfacing of the roadway and the rehabilitation and enhancement of greenery along the corridor. Grove Park will have a grand overlook area to maximize views of the quarry-turned-reservoir and a beautiful view of the Atlanta skyline.
The first phase of the park should open in 2019.
A new watering hole is being developed on the new Westside Trail of the Beltline.
Being built around an old warehouse, this spot called Lee + White will be at 933 Lee Street, and will be 22,000 square feet, by the current Monday Night Brewing.
There will also be an outpost with a focus on sour brews (by Decatur-based Wild Heaven Beer & Banyon Roots Brewing Co.), as well as a new whiskey outpost for Buckhead-based ASW Distillery.
Other businesses that have joined are: Golda Kombucha, Southern Aged Cheese, Doux South Pickles, and Honeysuckle Gelato and the United Way. For more info about what it’s like the live in the Westside, click here!
