DRIVE | Episode 9 | Atlanta, Georgia (downtown) Part 1

Downtown Atlanta is the central business district of Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The largest of the city’s three commercial districts, it is the location of many corporate or regional headquarters; city, county, state and federal government facilities; Georgia State University; sporting venues; and most of Atlanta’s tourist attractions. It measures approximately four square miles, and had 26,700 residents as of 2010. Similar to other central business districts in the United States, it has recently undergone a transformation that included the construction of new condos and lofts, renovation of historic buildings, and arrival of new residents and businesses.

Downtown is home to most of the city’s major sporting venues. Mercedes-Benz Stadium is home to the Atlanta Falcons, the city’s NFL team, and Atlanta United FC, the city’s MLS team. Mercedes-Benz Stadium also hosts major college football events, including the annual Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, the SEC Championship Game, and the Peach Bowl. In its vicinity is State Farm Arena, the home of the Atlanta Hawks, the city’s NBA team, and the Atlanta Dream, the city’s WNBA team. It is located directly across Centennial Olympic Park Drive from the CNN Center. Just south of Interstate 20 are the Georgia State University baseball and football stadiums—the latter built from the legacy of the defunct Centennial Olympic Stadium and Turner Field.
