At long last, an upcoming railroad-adjacent development in Atlanta is being marketed without “Yard” in the name.
In Atlantic Station, “Atlantic Yards” is under construction, a potential project site for sale in South Downtown was just dubbed “Artisan Yards,” and a possible Westside mixed-use development would go by “Quarry Yards,” to name just a few.
In Castleberry Hill, however, a 3.32-acre parcel nestled between Peters Street and railroad tracks could evolved into “Castleberry Station,” a 50-unit townhome community that promises “chic intown living,” per developer Brock Built.
Just a stone’s throw from the Gulch development site, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and other downtown attractions, Castleberry Station would feature what developers call an “urbanist-style setting” replete with pocket parks and wide sidewalks.
The three-bed, three-and-a-half-bath units would each stand three stories and span between 2,100 and 2,300 square feet.
The residential buildings would have all-brick exteriors, which Brock Built believes would pay homage to Castleberry Hill’s industrial history.
Each unit would also be topped with a rooftop deck and go to market for the mid to high $400,000s, according to the project’s web page.
The townhomes would each come with their own garage, too.
The timeline for the project has yet to be announced, but public records show officials have recently applied for building permits.
Nearby in Castleberry Hill, construction is underway on a $19 million residential complex called “The Smith & Porter Railside Flats,” which would deliver 115 one- and two-bedroom apartments to the neighborhood.
Also close to the Castleberry Station project site, in downtown, the century-old Norfolk Southern Buildings bordering the Gulch are undergoing a $70 million adaptive reuse transformation, which will convert the old railroad company offices into residences.
