Dotted with construction sites, fresh multifamily builds, hulking houses that’ve listed for nearly $1 million, and a hip dog park-bar hangout, Atlanta’s Boulevard corridor isn’t exactly what it used to be.
Now, on Boulevard’s southern Old Fourth Ward reaches, the neighborhood’s latest example of modern residential architecture is aiming to continue the trend of noticeable change.
Marketed as an “exquisite modern ... showstopper” that’s chockfull of “impeccable detailing,” the three-bedroom offering is under construction where Boulevard meets Gartrell Street, between Edgewood Avenue and Decatur Street, per the listing.
Beneath a prominent cantilever, the Boulevard-facing terrace (one of two elevated recreational spaces) is said to offer downtown skyline views, despite the apartments stacked across the street.
Around back, a two-vehicle carport is in the offing, and the listing promises a “fully fenced-in yard” that renderings don’t.
Records show the empty corner lot itself sold for $133,000 last year, and this long, relatively thin, 2,440-square-foot contemporary listed in recent days for $800,000 even.
The bathroom count is two full, two half. The architect isn’t specified. And the WalkScore is a sterling 92, reflecting walkable nightlife, food, and transit options.
Other highlights: green aspects that include NEST thermostats, a dedicated circuit for electric-vehicle charging, and pro-grade landscaping.
The double-height living room should make for an inspiring space—but at the cost of usable square footage, which floorplans suggest will result in smallish ancillary bedrooms.
Meanwhile, across the street, the most significant Boulevard development in at least a decade—a $70 million, seven-story office building with a hotel, townhomes, and retail mixed in—could start construction next year.
