Announced in June last year, the idea behind a cluster of townhomes called MetroVille was to bring “desirable modern qualities happening around Atlanta” to Mechanicsville for what developers called “a reasonable price,” with a larger, future goal of filling more vacant lots in an underserved neighborhood minutes from downtown.

Thus far, all’s going according to plan, say officials with Sunny Etc., the design and build team behind the townhouse project.

And they hope MetroVille is a harbinger of more residential construction to come in Mechanicsville and neighboring communities.

All eight units at MetroVille, which recently finished construction, were pre-sold for various prices less than $400,000. The remaining closings are scheduled this week, Senya Zaitsev, Sunny Etc. architect and developer, tells Curbed Atlanta.

The multi-story, semi-detached homes have taken shape on a 555 Pryor Street corner lot, across the Connector from Summerhill and Georgia State Stadium.

Zaitsev said most units offered three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in 1,650 square feet, two-car garages, and skyline views from Mercedes-Benz Stadium to the Braves’s former digs.

“It was 10 months of hard work,” Zaitsev wrote in an email, “but we look forward to doing more projects in the area and hope others do so as well.”

From the outset, developers called the MetroVille offerings some of the “most affordable handcrafted starter homes available” on this side of Atlanta.

Have a gander below at how they’ve turned out:
