Years—even months—ago, most Atlantans weren’t using the term “Upper Westside” to define the area south of Vinings and west of Buckhead.
But with more and more development filing into the area, the unofficial Upper Westside is making a real name for itself, and an upcoming apartment complex is doing its best to bolster the cause.
On Friday, Illinois-based McShane Construction Company announced it has secured the building duties for a 271-unit apartment community being developed by TQ-UWS Apartment Homes.
Plans by architects Dynamik Design show the project will bring three wood-framed buildings—a three-, four-, and five-story structure—spanning a total of 359,000 square feet to an 11.3-acre site on Bolton Road, near Crest Lawn Memorial Park.
Called “Vue at the Quarter,” the gated community will flaunt a clubhouse, outdoor pool, grilling station, fitness facility, and “pet play yards.”
The location offers fairly easy access to Interstate 75, and the development would one day be a short bike ride from the northwestern arc of the Atlanta Beltline, which could be among the last Beltline pieces built.
Expect a two-story, precast parking deck and detached garages to accommodate more than 400 cars, according to the press release.
Construction on Vue at the Quarter launched in May and is expected to conclude by November 2019.
The development would join a groundswell of houses and townhomes in the area and the likes of Westside Village, a $40 million Upper Westside multi-use development that aims to save the “retail- and restaurant-starved” area with shops, restaurants, and residences.
