Renderings have emerged for high-dollar townhomes bound for Virginia-Highland, and they're … kind of exactly what you might expect. We reported in September that 23 townhouses were destined to rise where where Virginia Avenue dead-ends into Briarcliff Road, the former site of two aging, garden-style apartment complexes. Details were scarce back then, but a website has popped up to tout the project as "Virginia Place: A new collection of only 23 luxury townhomes in the heart of Historic Virginia-Highland from the low $500s." The lone exterior rendering shows the offerings are either classic or a little humdrum, depending on your taste, and nearly identical to other developments in the area — namely Virginia Park, which is nearing completion a little closer to Ponce de Leon Avenue.
That said, the interior glimpses offered of the Virginia Place project are plenty appealing, and each of four floorplans — the St. Charles, the Rosedale, the Virginia and the Hudson, naturally — will have three bedrooms and three and 1/2 bathrooms. Square footage will range from 2,376 to 2,676. "Each home features its own two-car garage with plenty of storage area and wonderful, welcoming private outdoor spaces," the website boasts.
Southeast Capital Companies and Patrick Malloy Communities are behind the development, which may very well be just another high-dollar, suburb-esque townhome project — but if you take one person's word for it, that's not all bad. "Good riddance," Curbed commenter itpsnob wrote on the original post detailing the destruction of the previous apartments on the site. "These units were awful and infested with asbestos and god knows what else. Many tenants left behind a mind-boggling amount of garbage, furniture and person belongings, all of which ended up in a festering heap at the back of the property."
