Initial phase of Plateau West community aims to set pricing benchmark for area

For all the building activity in and around Midtown, the development hot zone isn’t exactly overflowing with new townhome options. Especially ones with pricing well into the $800,000s.

But that’s the ask for larger, well-appointed offerings at a new community called Plateau West, which will eventually include 18 homes arranged around a U-shape drive.

Poised on a Loring Heights hill that overlooks Atlantic Station, Midtown, and downtown, it’s a project by Monte Hewett Homes, the builder behind St. Andrews in Buckhead and a smattering of other upscale communities in the northern suburbs, such as the for-sale residential component at Avalon.

The idea is that skyline views and loaded four-story floorplans with rooftop kitchens and (optional) elevators will entice buyers to set the area’s pricing benchmark.

A photo of the site as ground broke in spring 2018 lends an idea of views today.

The designer model unit and largest offering so far was listed via Custom Realty Group this week for $848,900.

It’s pegged as a mere two-bedroom, though a media/flex room at ground level could act as a third lodging quarters.

Other pertinent numbers: 2,466 square feet, three and a half bathrooms, and a two-car garage. It’s one of the first 10 homes. HOA fees are $210 monthly. And the 56 WalkScore, with so much retail next door and park space nearby, leaves something to be desired.

The site plan shows a future row of homes just to the south.

Even the least expensive units listed so far (at $694,900 and dropping) count full-blown grilling kitchens and outdoor living rooms on the roof, which helps distinguish this townhome cluster from many others around the city.

Astute lovers of city views might keep an eye on proposed development in the area, although the existing elevation with four stories atop it might mean that rooftop vistas are spared.

The model unit includes a family room with a custom, granite fireplace surround and wide-plank flooring. An elevator servicing all four levels is also part of the package.
