A spokesperson for a hot new townhome development along the Beltline said there's only one thing delaying construction — demand. Several hefty-sized properties have already gone up at Highland Park, an in-demand project wedged next to North Highland Avenue and the Beltline where Inman Park and the Old Fourth Ward collide. Jennifer Nillson, marketing VP with developer John Wieland Homes, said a dozen more homes — all of which have been sold — are currently under construction. About 30 more, she said, are still coming. The number of people who have joined a VIP list via a "small refundable deposit" is roughly double that, which (according to the developer) was a factor in the project's staggered completion.
The townhomes, billed as "the only NEW" ones being built along the Beltline, range in price from just shy of $400,000 to the $600Ks. Specific floorplans aren't posted online, but the units listed on Wieland's website are all three-bedroom and 3.5-bathroom and are up to 3,400 square feet. "We anticipate the next construction release at Highland Park will take place after the first of the year," Nillson said, "and the neighborhood is expected to sell out in 2014." A Curbed tipster on the waiting list complained about being held in limbo for so long, but it appears that's just part of the process.
