The latest crop of uber-swank Old Fourth Ward townhomes will be sited so far west its developers are touting proximity to the Fox Theatre and Piedmont Park.
Expected to break ground a block west of Boulevard next month, the “Views at O4W” will entail 27 units with modern lines and rooftop decks promising Midtown and downtown vistas. And private backyards for frolicking pets.
Sizes will range between 1,790 and 1,862 square feet with up to three bedrooms (or two bedrooms plus a flex space). Prices will start in the low $600,000s, according to developer Foyer Urban, a local homebuilder “dedicated to building exceptional product in desirable locations,” per marketing materials.
Speaking of location, developers have calculated that Ponce City Market is three blocks away from the site, while Piedmont Park is 10 blocks north and the Fabulous Fox a little more than a half-mile west.
Elsewhere in the Old Fourth Ward, other townhouse ventures—420 Parkway and this cheaper, traditional-style project—have popped up recently in the same neck of the woods, between Boulevard and Midtown.
Other facets of Views at O4W will include bike racks, two-car garages, and what’s described as a “centralized mew constructed out of environmentally friendly permeable pavers” that all units will face.
“This particular site is walkable to some of the best shopping and eating in the city,” Dave Odom, Foyer Urban’s president, said in a press release. “We’re excited about the trend of people moving back to the city and we want to be a part of it.”
Renderings predict the community will be a hit with social, bike-riding millennials and a real hive of diversity.
