More and more opportunities are emerging to live like a champion — a Curbed Cup champion, that is. Fresh on the market is the first unit available at Moda Reynoldstown, a townhome and condo development around the corner from the Beltline's future Eastside Trail extension. Relatively speaking, the asking price of $264,900 (plus $117 in HOA fees) is affordable housing for a modern-style, three-story townhome with two bedrooms, two and ½ bathrooms, a two-car garage and 1,400 square feet. (Comparably sized units next door, in the heart of Inman Park, are selling for $100,000 more, though the neighborhoods' retail offerings are apples-oranges at this point). The units sound swanky enough, with wide-planks floors, quartz countertops and smart wiring. Eventually, Moda Reynoldstown will have 45 townhomes and 20 condos, bordering CSX's Hulsey Yard, with a solar-heated pool and community gardens. In an interview with Curbed last fall, the developer said the largest units (about 1,900 square feet) will cost around $319,000, and he called the project "very reasonably priced." It's the latest in a wave of new residential offerings — standalone homes, duplexes, apartments, you name it — planned for a neighborhood with glorious fake hardware on its mantel.
