UPDATE: November 27, 9:30 a.m. Jack Zampell of developer Jackbilt Homes sends clarification that the company has two townhome projects under construction—The Warren and Eleanor, both named for local streets—on Memorial Drive sites within blocks of each other.
Writes Zampell: “The overall development is 27 townhomes called WE Kirkwood. All 27 building permits have been issued. The Warren Kirkwood (1836 Memorial Drive, formerly The Urban by the Forest; we changed the name when we acquired the Eleanor site and wanted the names to work together) is on the north side of Memorial Drive at the corner of Dearborn [Street]. This consists of 15 units, four stories with rooftop patios, and a dog park.” (See the renderings immediately below for an exterior preview).
“The Eleanor Kirkwood (1911 Memorial Drive) is on the south side of Memorial at the intersection of Warren Street. This consists of 12, three-story townhomes with rooftop patios. The development work is almost complete and vertical construction is starting in the next 30 days. These renderings are not finalized yet but coming soon.”
Situated in the 1800 block of Memorial Drive, between the townhouse explosion near Reynoldstown’s Beltline section and more than 60 units under construction where a Kirkwood church recently stood, The Warren is nearing the home stretch of construction on 15 residences with rooftop terraces.
According to initial Ansley Atlanta Real Estate listings this week, prices at the Jackbilt Homes community begin at $549,900. That buys three bedrooms and three full bathrooms (with two half-baths) across 2,028 square feet.
On the flipside, at $629,900, the priciest units thus far will include four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms in 2,838 square feet.
Plans indicate all homes will stand four stories, with predicted delivery in April. Elevators and rooftop kitchens with gas grills are optional.
It’s a project formerly known as Urban by the Forest—a reference to the Kirkwood Urban Forest next door—at the corner of Memorial Drive and Dearborn Street. And its part of an estimated $1.5 billion in development along the booming corridor.
As the listing puts it, the project is walkable to “thriving restaurants, shops, and businesses, [and] surrounded by historic homes and preserved green spaces.”
More than half of the homes, per marketers, are available for walk-throughs now.
