More than three acres of downtown’s historic Castleberry Hill district are being transformed into the neighborhood’s latest townhome development.
The railroad-adjacent property, a few blocks south of Mercedes-Benz Stadium along 249 Peters Street, is slated to become “Castleberry Station,” a 50-townhome community linked by a network of wide sidewalks and pocket parks.
Developed by Brock Built Homes, the project promises “upscale urban living” with three-bed, three-and-a-half-bath floorplans spanning between 2,100 and 2,300 square feet.
The complex’s all-brick exteriors are meant to “complement the rich history and creativity” of the once very industrial neighborhood, per project leaders.
The project is also being billed as “affordable housing,” but it’s not the kind of affordable that Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms would tout on her mission to produce and preserve $1 billion of cheaper housing options in the city.
With prices in the mid-to-high $400,000s, it’s “more affordable from the extent of how much home you are getting for the price and location,” says a Brock Built spokesperson.
Pre-sales begin Saturday, and the development is expected to be resident-ready in early 2020.
Castleberry Station is also a stone’s throw from the proposed Gulch—er, Centennial Yards—mega-development.
