The Edgewood community is located 3 miles East of downtown Atlanta in Dekalb County. It features quality shopping amenities and its location relative to other popular communities make it a very desirable place to reside. East Atlanta, Old Fourth Ward, Kirkwood, and Little Five Points are all within a stone’s throw. Proximity to public transportation and Interstate 20 also make it a desirable area for those seeking easy access to downtown and midtown Atlanta.
A large percentage of the homes in Edgewood are bungalows but the housing stock is slowly evolving. Over the last several decades, the area has also seen a steady rise in town homes, condos, and even some new construction. Many of the older homes are being renovated as well.

The Edgewood Retail District has slowly become a necessity for many living in Edgewood and the neighboring communities. Located just across Deklab Ave from Little Five Points, the retail center provides a variety of restaurants, shopping, and auxiliary services. Major tenants include Lowe’s, Target, Best Buy, Kroger, Barnes & Noble, Office Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Petco, Ross Dress for Less, and Vitamin Shoppe. The shopping center is so popular simply because it is a one stop shop for those living nearby. This retail development will remain a hugely important anchor for the Edgewood community for years to come.
