After sparring with Virginia-Highland neighbors over whether a multifamily residential development would be a good fit for an Eastside Trail-adjacent site, developer Capital City Real Estate is moving forward with its high-end condo project.

Planned for 675 Drewry Street, a property that currently hosts a single-story building with live-work space and some retail, the new development would bring 40 condos to the Beltline’s edge, just north of Paris on Ponce.

In the spring, some neighbors around Drewry Street argued the project clashed with the goals of City of Atlanta’s Comprehensive Development Plan, the Beltline’s Subarea 6 masterplan, and the Virginia-Highland Masterplan.

But in April, the city’s Zoning Review Board sided with Capital City, ushering along the roughly 0.4-acre project.

Now, demolition work is on track to kick off in February, and site work is planned for March, officials say.

Smith Dalia Architects sent Curbed Atlanta new renderings that illustrate the vision for the condos, which would range from about 900 to 1,500 square feet in one-, two-, and three-bedroom floorplans.

Vicki Johnston, Capital City’s director of design, sales, and marketing, adds that all condos “will have balconies, and the penthouse level units will have outdoor roof decks ranging in size from 350 to 750 square feet, all with gas, water, and electric utilities.”

At the bottom, expect two levels of amenity space that open up to the Beltline, as well as parking and storage space.

Prices are expected to run from $450,000 to $1.1 million, and the condos are slated to be tenant-ready in spring 2021.
