In the shadow of Drew Charter School’s modernistic campus, sales have launched for a new East Lake townhome community developers say is designed to encourage neighborly interactions.
Offering 32 homes in what’s described as a playful, fresh, modern-farmhouse style, Bixton by EA Homes will be walkable to the commercial villages of East Lake (the evolving 2nd + Hosea, that is), Kirkwood, and—for the adventurous—Oakhurst.
It’s under construction between Cottage Grove Avenue and Memorial Drive.
Bixton will offer two and three-bedroom floorplans ranging from 2,400 to 2,600 square feet, with prices beginning in the low $500,000s, according to developers.
Some residences will feature detached garages, and the project’s nucleus with be a communal green space dubbed “the backyard.”
“Designed to face outward toward the community yet create its own sense of place, Bixton brings a porch-sitting, kids-playing, street-light-popping-on kind of life to intown Atlanta,” reads a marketing spiel. “The architecture at Bixton is simple and clean, inspired by a comfort-driven approach to beautiful design for single-family homes.”
Other attractions—beyond the bold promise of “joy around every corner”—include fresh wall murals a few steps away “by local and emerging artists,” per developers.
Among other projects, EA Homes is also building a large offering of townhomes called The Swift that neighbors the Beltline’s Southside Trail and Grant Park, and a community of 33 townhomes at Lindbergh.
The company had established itself as a suburban builder, focused largely on Atlanta’s northern arc, but more recently has shifted intown as buyers demanded walkability and transit-connectivity.
