For a couple of years now, spacious Old Fourth Ward townhomes with rooftop extravagances priced north of $800,000 have been a real thing.
That’s increasingly becoming the norm. And such properties are increasingly coming in pairs.
In the last couple of weeks, two duplexes have debuted on opposite sides of Historic Fourth Ward Park—a chief neighborhood attraction—with asking prices substantially more than $800,000.
Both offerings will be built in 2017, per listings. Neither specifies their square footages yet.
Let’s have a look ...
669 East Ave.
Developer: Trident Intown Development
Location: East Avenue, just south of Historic Fourth Ward Park and roughly a block from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail.
The 411: Billed, of course, as “modern masterpieces,” these homes will marry white cement siding with wood on the exteriors, boasting wraparound balconies and rooftop decks that promise skyline views. Kitchens are described as gourmet, the tile custom, and floors hardwood. Garages allegedly fit two cars.
The pitch: “One of O4W's best streets with new construction all around. Act quickly and pick your finishes and customize this modern gem to make it your own!”

650 Kennesaw Ave., Units A & B
Developer: Hudson Development Group
Location: Off North Avenue, about a block from both Ponce City Market and Boulevard
The 411: Here on Kennesaw Avenue, the rooftops are described as outdoor living rooms (kitchens optional), the floorplans open, and the homes collectively “stunning.” The garages fit two cars side-by-side, but a buyer’s gluteus maximus could take a beating getting from there to the roof.
The pitch: “Perched on one of the highest points in O4W, this magnificent modern townhouse will capture spectacular views in every direction, including the Midtown skyline and Ponce City Market rooftop and tower.”
