It’s another sign of new development in a traditionally underserved area

Bankhead continues to show interest from investors and builders, as evidenced by multiple forms of development in the community over the past couple of years.

The latest comes in the form of townhomes that recently broke ground on Paines Avenue.

A new neighborhood from an active builder on Atlanta’s Westside, BrockBuilt, Oliver Street Townhomes will feature 30 three-bedroom townhomes ranging in size from 2,000 to 2,400 square feet.

Pricing will start in the low $400,000s.

Although more specific details aren’t yet available, per BrockBuilt reps, the builder’s website states the townhomes will “boast beautiful modern and traditional architecture,” with “trendy features and finishes.”

In addition, they will have private rooftop terraces and easy access to the Beltline’s Westside Connector trail, once it’s built out.

Floorplans have yet to be revealed, but the neighborhood site plan showcases a square design with units divided into six buildings surrounded by some green space.

Oliver Street Townhomes is another forthcoming development in the traditionally underserved area that includes a second BrockBuilt townhome community called The Finley, as well as tentative mixed-use development plans known as 1080 DLH.

The latter also involves BrockBuilt, along with DeFoor Ventures and Sixty-West.

While the homes could be a boon for Bankhead, they just as likely could be the next domino falling in the area’s gentrification.

According to City of Atlanta research depicting “neighborhood gentrification pressure areas,” Bankhead is in the “dynamic stage” of gentrification, meaning it’s under “high-pressure” of gentrifying forces.
