About Us

Sweet Auburn Works, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to preservation-based commercial district revitalization. Our efforts are modeled on the National Main Street Center’s “Main Street” four-point approach.  (For more information on the Main Street program, click here).

We are the community-based economic development organization that leads and supports preservation and revitalization efforts within the Historic Auburn District. When Auburn Avenue was in its prime, an entrepreneurial class emerged, forming some of the businesses that would endure into the 21st century. The nature of Atlanta as a rail hub brought fresh ideas and a sense of cosmopolitanism to Auburn that infused the neighborhood with vitality unlike other similar-sized cities of the South.

Sweet Auburn Works and the greater Atlanta community are working to see that same vitality re-emerge in the Auburn District. Sweet Auburn Works envisions a dynamic, revitalized “Sweet Auburn” community, firmly rooted in the historical Auburn District experience while going forward into the 21st century with a vibrant business and entertainment district and rich and diverse community.
