A homebuilder known for erecting “comfortable luxury” housing across Atlanta’s cushy northern ‘burbs is switching focus to the intown frenzy, where their next products can offer coveted, inimitable perks such as urban walkability and transit connectivity, officials say.

Edward Andrews Homes (EA Homes) lifted the veil this week on what they’re calling Broadview Place, an enclave of 33 townhomes across the street from the Lindbergh MARTA hub, next to Home Depot-anchored Lindbergh Plaza.

As for the logic behind the location, a rep tells Curbed Atlanta via email, “EA Homes, typically a suburban builder, is choosing to move intown to take advantage of the opportunity to build for-sale townhomes near MARTA, in a walkable neighborhood, as buyers are increasingly seeking that lifestyle.”

Beyond the MARTA station, developers are touting easy-breezy proximity to Target, Starbucks, a new Kroger (with beer and wine bar), and the future PATH400 Trail.

“These sophisticated townhomes provide a rare opportunity to own a new home in Buckhead where buyers can live, shop, see, and be seen,” reads a marketing blurb.

The townhomes will be situated near the collapsed I-85 bridge that was recently torched by mounds of flammable construction materials a homeless dude’s chair.

Starting prices of $377,900 will bag a little more than 1,300 square feet, two bedrooms, and two and 12 bathrooms. The priciest homes will top out in the $400,000s, per marketing materials. Each unit will have three levels.

The community, which will also boast a wee on-site greenspace and “strolling sidewalks,” opened for sales earlier this month. No construction timeline was provided.

“Townhomes in a walkable, lively neighborhood are becoming increasingly sought-after,” Caroline Simmel, senior vice president of marketing at EA Homes, said in a release. “Broadview Place provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for buyers to own a beautiful Buckhead home, connect to Morningside and Midtown, and embrace a new, exciting lifestyle in the city.”
