Key Features

Top-Notch Schools: What began largely as a suburb of Atlanta has now taken on an identity of its own. South Cobb enjoys access to an excellent school system, parks and recreation opportunities, and many tight-knit communities.

Home of the Braves: One of South Cobb’s prime amenities is the Battery, a sports and entertainment complex. This mixed-use development includes SunTrust Park, the home stadium of the Atlanta Braves, and outposts from some of Atlanta's most popular chefs. It also features the Omni, a four-star luxury hotel and the Roxy Theater, an entertainment venue with a 4,000-person capacity.
