In the early 1900s, a section of downtown’s Mitchell Street was developed to accommodate travelers coming to and from Atlanta’s main railroad hub, the Terminal Station.
The lodging options are gone, but the name, Historic Hotel Row, lives on.
And as of today, Hotel Row has been injected with new activity that Newport US RE, the developer planning to transform dozens of South Downtown buildings, is calling “Pop Up Row.”
From now until July 31, a selection of the former hotel buildings will be open to pop-up patrons. Some of them still bear the names of inns that operated a century ago—Scoville, Sylvan, and Gordon Lofts, for instance.
