John Wieland Homes has released renderings of their latest intown townhouse development where many had hoped an adaptive-reusue project would happen. Billed as "The Square at Glen Iris," the homes will rise on an entire block in the Old Fourth Ward, not far from the Beltline. Renderings end two years of speculation as to what exactly would replace a historic building that formerly occupied the site. In early January, wrecking crews took down the abandoned, circa-1929 James G. Dodson's Ironized Yeast Company factory and aggravated some neighbors in the process.
Plans call for a community of two dozen townhomes to colonize the former factory site. The first eight properties for sale feature three bedrooms and four-and-1/2 bathrooms apiece, ranging in price from the low-$600,000s to the low-$700,000s. The designs look reminicent of many other Wieland projects and feature amenities just like the under-construction Aldredge community in Brookhaven: each unit will feature a rooftop terrace, a two-car garage and 10-foot ceilings on the main living floors. With construction in its early stages, it'll be some time before ex-suburbanites with full-cash offers will be able to move in.
