Westside Provisions is a mixed use neighborhood located in the heart of the West Midtown area of Atlanta, Georgia, United States.[1]

History[edit]

White Provision expansion plans, 1922

Westside Provisions was formed in 2008 by the construction of a footbridge linking the Westside Urban Market to White Provision. White Provision occupies the White Provision Co. building, constructed in 1910 and expanded in 1922-1924 in the Industrial Gothic style. It served as a meat packing plant and was sold to Swift and Company. In 1963 the property was converted into a bonded warehouse and in 1991 as a U-Haul storage center and as residential lofts. Westside Urban Market is built on the site of the 1917 United Butchers Abattoir, later the site of Stovall and Co.[2] Both the abbatoir and meat packing facility were established in proximity to the Miller Union Stockyards then located in the area from the 1880s through 1940s.[3]

Retail and dining[edit]

Westside Provisions boasts top-notch dining experiences and national retailers. For retail, the development is anchored by a large Room & Board furniture store as well as Atlanta's second Anthropologie.[4][5][6] The district includes Atlanta's two top Zagat-rated restaurants, Bacchanalia and the Quinones Room.[7] It also includes a gourmet market with sections for produce, cheese, and a bakery, additional restaurants, and high end home furnishings and apparel shops.
