The swath of north Atlanta west of I-75 inside I-285—now known as the Upper Westside—was developed in the 19th century as an industrial hub around the CSX line. The area is home to quiet neighborhoods—including Bolton, Riverside, and Whittier Mill Village—and filled with a mix of historic mill worker homes, bungalows, and squat apartment complexes. But lately development, from warehouse conversions to a much-needed grocery store, has been booming in the area. “It’s one of Atlanta’s best-kept secrets,” says Dustin Hillis, a former Riverside Neighborhood Association president. “But that’s rightfully changing.”
