Most ATL apartments are found on the eastern side of the city, highly concentrated in the business districts around Downtown and Midtown. These areas are perfect for people who enjoy the fast-paced urban vibe, making them ideal spots for singles and young professionals. With top colleges like Georgia State, Georgia Tech and Emory University nearby, these districts are also highly favored by students.

Prices for apartment rentals in Downtown and Midtown are generally high, depending on the size. Many of them are modern, high-rise apartments with resort-style amenities and accents including stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the city. A studio apartment option offers great amenities at a slightly lower rate, if you are willing to compromise on space. A condo or apartment in this area has an average monthly rent of $1,500, on the low side. Find out the monthly rent range for popular neighborhoods in these districts below.

  • SoNo: between $1,400 and $1,800
  • Midtown Proper: between $1,600 and $2,000
  • Tech Square: between $1,500 and $2,000

Homes in Downtown and Midtown put residents right in the center of the action. In these business districts, commuters and students enjoy easy access to the public transportation system managed by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). There are also plenty of local attractions to enjoy within walking distance, from the World of Coca Cola museum, CNN Studios and the Mercedez-Benz Stadium, to a wealth of unique restaurants and small businesses.

Spreading out to the east and west of the city center, the neighborhoods grow less urban and more quiet and picturesque. Some neighborhoods in these historic districts date back as far as the late 1800s, but apartment rentals here are as trendy as ever. Expect to pay top-dollar for apartments in converted historic buildings, though a one bedroom apartment in newer buildings usually ranges between $1,000 and $1,200. Amenities frequently include hardwood floors, exposed brick and rooftop terraces with views of the beautifully renovated Victorian homes and cobblestone pathways. Popular neighborhoods in East and West Atlanta include:

  • Old Fourth Ward
  • Inman Park
  • Virginia Highland
  • West End
  • Vine City

Properties in East and West Atlanta are great for young couples, families and individuals who enjoy the eclectic combination of city attractions and a small town feel. Many of these neighborhoods are known as some of the safest in the city. Throughout the year, locals enjoy the frequently warm, sunny weather while exploring the abundance of gardens, boutiques and historical sites, like the childhood home and resting place of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Atlanta BeltLine runs through a few of these neighborhoods as well, a former railway corridor that now provides miles of trail for local joggers, bikers and walkers to explore.

If you prefer the tranquility of the suburbs but still gravitate towards apartment-style housing, consider moving northward into areas like Buckhead. Neighborhoods in Buckhead range from elegant residential areas to quiet communities nestled in the forest landscape.

Many of these complexes and low-rise privately owned apartments do not provide the same top-notch amenities as the luxury apartments in Virginia Highland and Tech Square, but you can easily save over $1,000 a month in rent for the same size space. Renters can find a two bedroom apartment for the same price as a single bedroom in other areas. Consider properties in these popular neighborhoods for more space and savings:

  • Brookhaven
  • Buckhead Village
  • Lenox Park
  • Lindbergh

While the Red and Gold MARTA lines run from Downtown through the Buckhead area, you don’t want to rely only on public transportation here. Having a car is essential to get around these northern neighborhoods.
