Towering over Ponce de Leon Avenue, near Briarcliff Road and the underrated chain of Olmsted Parks, a trio of four-story townhouses called “Oculus on Ponce” has finished construction.
Marketed as having “distinct architectural details” that set them apart from intown’s latest townhome wave, these stylish residences replace a dilapidated structure that festered for years in the 1100 block of Ponce.
The first big piggy to market—Unit 1, on the left end—listed this week at $809,900, touting a (gated) two-car garage and rooftop terrace with optional wet bar. The facts: four bedrooms, four and 1⁄2 bathrooms, 2,622 square feet, and one jazzy stair railing.
Circular powder rooms on the main level are an interesting touch that extend the oculus theme down from the architectural holes over rooftop terraces. Other unique facets include 12-foot ceilings on the main, Porcelanosa cabinetry, and Pella windows that climb 11 feet high.
The street these units face might be busy and noisy at most hours of the day, but the commercial, leisure, and transportation options that surround Ponce afford the location a dy-no-mite 87 WalkScore.
Announced in summer 2016, this TSW-designed trio was originally predicted to start in the mid-$800,000s, developer Cablik Enterprises (which partnered with AU1 Properties on this one) said at the time.
So could it be they’ve actually gotten cheaper than predictions? In Atlanta? In 2017?
