Downtown Decatur has densified considerably in the last couple of years, and this thriving ITP city is in for another heaping helping — shaped like a pie, no less — of apartments soon.

At 245 Trinity Place, on land once occupied by an old-fashioned Dairy Queen, the ARLO is now leasing its 210 units, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Amenities will include a "skyline lounge and terrace," a "hotel-inspired pool," and on-site bike shop, plus a park and spa just for the pooches.

About pricing: Studios with 640 square feet start at $1,405. On the top end, two-bedroom units with 1,075 square feet begin at $2,055. The building will offer eight other floorplans in between those two poles. Ceiling heights range from nine to 12 feet, and all countertops are quartz, according to marketing materials.
