Across from Ponce City Market, Masquerade-replacing apartments take shape

North & Line will bring hundreds of new residences to a three-acre site between the Beltline and Historic Fourth Ward Park

It’s been a little more than a year since one of Atlanta’s most famous music venues, the Masquerade, relocated from the old Excelsior Mill across from Ponce City Market to Underground Atlanta.

Much has happened in the time since, as construction crews have cleared out the site and dug down to construct new apartments along the Beltline.

The project topped out months ago along Historic Fourth Ward Park, and it now stands seven stories over North Angier Avenue. This past summer, the site was little more than a massive hole; now the facade is being added to the built-out structure.

Designed by Smith Dalia, North & Line will feature 228 one- and two-bedroom units atop a parking deck and 4,500 square feet of ground level retail space. Amenities will include a pool deck with partial skyline views and 5,000 square feet of club and gym space.

A site plan shows two courtyards facing the Beltline, while the pool will be perched atop the southern corner of the podium, providing a vista over Historic Fourth Ward Park.

Meanwhile, the old Excelsior Mill building will house a small market space, like its famous, much larger neighbor Ponce City Market.
