These days we’re focused on lots of development – new houses, new businesses, and new neighbors. As we grow, we need resources to support our growth and ensure the safety and preservation of our neighborhood.

Piedmont Heights Named in Top 7 of Best Neighborhoods in Atlanta 2020 



We always knew that our neighborhood was special, now the entire state knows it too! Thank you Curbed Atlanta for naming Piedmont Heights one of the best neighborhoods in Atlanta!Curbed Atlanta

THE DRAW: A feeling of being tucked away, in the middle of it all

SIMILAR NEIGHBORHOODS: Morningside-Lenox Park; Peachtree Hills

TYPES OF HOMES: High-dollar new construction; handsome brick townhomes; garden-style condos

An icicle-shaped neighborhood bounded by Piedmont Avenue, Interstate 85, and the former railroad line that cuts through Piedmont Park, Piedmont Heights is under-appreciated. This tony neighborhood is a segue between trendy Midtown and the old/new money of Buckhead, with enviable proximity to Piedmont Park and all the scuzzy wonders of Cheshire Bridge Road. Its roster of attractions includes venerable Smith’s Olde Bar and Ford Fry’s Little Rey, plus a stock of truly lovely, smaller houses that can be attained in the ballpark of $500,000.

There is history aplenty; Atlanta’s second-oldest home—the Liddell House,http://bit.ly/LiddellHouse a classic, clapboard-sided antebellum farmhouse with a porte cochère—is located on Montgomery Ferry Road. But for all its aspirational residences and marquee location, not every Atlantan could point out Piedmont Heights on a map, which boosts the cachet.

Bonus: Piedmont Heights is getting its own Beltline segment

http://bit.ly/PiedmontHeightsBeltline—a stretch of the Northeast Trail, behind the neighborhood’s Ansley Mall—that launched construction last fall. The result should be a combination of Beltline and interstate access second only to West End and Reynoldstown. And locals know not to miss Grindhouse Killer Burgers, which opened its “flagship” location here on Piedmont Avenue in 2011.

Piedmont Heights mourns the loss of our beloved Jean Johnson who passed away quietly on February 4 th after a short illness. Jean moved to Piedmont Heights in 1972. She joined the Piedmont Heights Civic Association a few years later, and served on its Board of Directors for 35 years. She chaired and served on many committees and task forces, never seeking high post nor personal recognition. She was always the calm voice of experience and reason, never excited nor angry, led by example, and offered wise counsel. Her dedication to community extended far beyond our neighborhood. She served many years as Piedmont Heights’ representative to Neighborhood Planning Unit F, garnering much public recognition. In 2016 she received an Atlanta Planning Advisory Board Award for the City of Atlanta’s “Neighborhoods Matter” program.

Jean was at heart a teacher. Her professional career in Atlanta included three major educational organizations, the Southern Regional Education Board, the Southern Education Foundation, and the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, retiring in 2000. Jean never married but the many friends she made in Piedmont Heights became her loving family.

In 2013, to recognize her long service to our neighborhood, the PHCA Board created and awarded her the “Jean Johnson Award”, which since has been awarded annually to a PHCA Board Member for outstanding service. When asked about the highlights of her life, Jean responded without hesitation, friends made and her years of service to Piedmont Heights.

We thank Jean from the bottoms of our hearts for being such a good neighbor and wish her a fond farewell. We will sorely miss her but her spirit and example will always be with us.

Atlanta Police Department Zone Boundaries Change Affects Piedmont Heights

Effective Sunday, March 17, 2017, Atlanta Police Department’s change to its Zone boundaries changed the Zones responsible for Piedmont Heights coverage.

Piedmont Heights and Morningside now have portions of their neighborhoods in both Zones 2 and 6. Former Beat 213, which includes much of Piedmont Heights and Morningside became Beat 613 in Zone 6. In Piedmont Heights, Wimbledon and areas to the north remain in Zone 2 in Beat 212. Rock Springs and areas south moved to Zone 6, Beat 613. We coordinated with both Zone Commanders on March 18 to voice our concern over the split coverage. Both Zone Commanders assured us the change will mean faster patrol response in our area because Police Dispatch will send the closest unit on a call, no matter which Zone it is in. The change will also mean both Zones 2 and 6 will patrol Cheshire Bridge Road.

We will continue to coordinate with both Zones 2 and 6 and will keep you informed of changes as they occur. This Zone change will not affect the Piedmont Heights Security Patrol. A new Atlanta Police Zone and Beat map is available at

The City of Atlanta Department of Public Works announces that beginning April 1, all bulk pick-ups must be scheduled. There will be a maximum of 12 scheduled bulk pick-ups per year. Bulk collection can be scheduled by contacting ATL311 at least one business day in advance. Learn more at www.atlantaga.gov/solidwaste

    Construction will take place overnight starting in April 20 and last 24 weeks.

    The Kroger adjacent Ansley Mall, at 1700 Monroe Dr. NE in the Piedmont Heights neighborhood of Atlanta, will soon begin interior renovations to the tune of $1,500,000.

    Planned improvements to the 64,788 square-foot supermarket include replacement and relocation of sales floor fixtures, display cases, some deli-prep modifications, and the relocation of the in-house pharmacy.

    Kroger will remain open and in operation during the remodel.

    “The contractors will work on the renovations overnight so there will be no change in opening hours and no disruption for our customers,” a Kroger associate shared with What Now Atlanta over the phone this week.

    Construction is expected to span 24 weeks, starting in April 2020 and ending in November.

    Kroger’s Piedmont Heights renovation comes just months after the Murder Kroger redux at 725 Ponce.
