On a triangular plot of land in downtown Chamblee where housing developments have sputtered before, a cluster of townhouses called “The Bristol” is aiming to plug a gap in the urbanizing city’s core.

The 17-unit project designed by TSW Architects and developed by Cablik Enterprises, which has delivered modern-style townhouses across Atlanta, aims to finish construction this fall, according to listings.

It’s rising on a plot colloquially called the Gulch, along Chamblee’s retail-studded Peachtree Road, a couple of blocks south of Chamblee City Hall and just north of a Gold Line MARTA rail transit station.

Two of the 17 units are under contract now, according to the development’s website.

The three or four-bedroom homes range from $559,900 way up to $859,900, with 10 different floorplans.

Every option is relatively large (1,800 to 3,200 square feet). Each will offer full rooftop terraces. And many will have something more centrally located townhomes usually don’t: fenced and deeded yards, per developers.

“The modern architectural influences coupled with the historic charm of Chamblee provide a unique and exciting location to call the respite of home,” reads the marketing pitch.

The listing notes the presence of Moon Bird Coffee and Southbound restaurant across the street as being walkability perks.

Meanwhile, just to the west and south, a wave of investment has brought developments including Parkview on Peachtree, Olmsted, 5211 Peachtree Boulevard, and a new office building near the city’s MARTA station.

Part of the official Bristol spiel: “Imagined with the aviation of its namesake, the British aviation company responsible for many of Britain’s most beautiful aircraft, in mind, this community draws upon the influence of transportation as well as Chamblee’s recent transformation.”
