Construction activity in Inman Park next to the Beltline is for a new parking deck that will serve future apartments, the Stove Works office complex and Krog Street Market, an official confirmed Monday. Krog Street Market developers Paces Properties are building the deck to absorb of an influx of traffic when the much-anticipated project opens, which is now expected to happen in late July, spokeswoman Tara Murphy told Curbed Atlanta. Paces sold an adjacent three-acre lot where they'd planned to build a Beltline-connected multifamily project. Trammel Crow Residential will now build the 222-unit "Alexan Krog Street" apartments, which will wrap the parking deck and nearly conceal it from view, Murphy said. Until then, the deck will serve office workers, Rathbun's, Krog Bar and will house overflow parking from the 30,000 square-foot marketplace at night.
One selling point, Tramwell Crow officials hope, will be the apartment project's hundreds of feet of Beltline frontage. Beltline officials are working with the developer on a suitable link between the projects. Otherwise, Beltline patrons will be able to access the Eastside Trail via ramps at the rebuilt Edgewood Avenue bridge, pending its completion.
A Trammel Crow press release describes Alexan Krog Street as "a mix of one bedroom and two bedroom units with high-end finishes, including: stainless steel appliances, full size side-by-side refrigerators, granite countertops, 42" cabinets, washer/dryers in every unit, and hardwood flooring." The on-site amenities look like they'll meet the status quo for Atlanta's new apartment wave — and that means necessities like a dog wash, bike repair shop, large clubhouse and resort-style pool. Some other added perks sound pretty cool: an outdoor rooftop patio, bocce court and … wait for it … outdoor hammock garden.
