East Lake is nestled in between the Oakhurst Village and Downtown Kirkwood. While many residents enjoyed walking or biking to the nearby neighborhoods, everyone dreamed of having their own little 'village.' That dream came true when a developer revitalized the three corners of Hosea Williams and 2nd Avenue. Now referred to as "Hosea + 2nd" this amazing new area received the Award of Excellence from the Atlanta Urban Design Commission. It was also a 2017 finalist for an American Institute of Architects (Georgia) design and honor award for renovation/restoration.
