Fans of the Poncey-Highland landmark Manuel’s Tavern—and townhouses in general—will soon have an opportunity to live easy staggering distance from the iconic watering hole.

Developer Live Oak Realty Partners has released plans for the construction of 15 townhomes on a lot across the street from Manuel’s. (This project has been on the radar for a year now, but the floorplans are a relatively new addition to marketing materials).

The sleek, four-story units—known as Freedom Townhomes—would replace at least two old homes in the neighborhood.

Four floor plans are shown on the website, ranging from just over 3,000 square feet to more than 4,119. All four plans have four bedrooms, four-and-1/2 bathrooms, and rooftop patio spaces.

As with many new projects rising in popular intown neighborhoods, Freedom Townhomes is aiming squarely for the luxury market. Per sellers, units will begin in the $700,000s, and construction should be launching soon.

Initial projections said the townhomes would be ready for occupancy last fall. Obviously, that didn’t pan out.

Each unit will feature 10-foot ceilings, gas fireplaces, wet bars, Wi-Fi capable smart-home features, and USB outlets.

The development will back up to the Freedom Park Trail, providing residents with quick walkability and bikability to the Beltline and downtown.

Meanwhile, Manuel’s has reopened after a major overhaul last year, but a planned residential development on the bar’s parking lot has yet to materialize.
