A few blocks east of the Beltline’s Eastside Trail and Ponce City Market, and mere feet from Freedom Park, a longstanding Moe’s Southwest Grill could be on the chopping block.

A 45-unit condo building has been proposed for the site at 863 Ponce de Leon Avenue, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Pitched by C4 Developers, the complex would feature one-and two-bedroom units ranging from $299,000 to $359,000.

Exactly how spacious the condos would be hasn’t been specified, but proximity to the Freedom Park Trail and Beltline would allow for room to get outside and stretch.

The project was briefly detailed in a rezoning request filed by local architect Kevin Maher, of Place Maker Design. It would also include 1,800 square feet of commercial space, per the paper.

The site’s proposed redevelopment, of course, comes at a transformative time for the Ponce de Leon corridor, which is booming with activity from Ponce City Market, the restored Hotel Clermont, and, soon, 725 Ponce, an office stack being completed above an urbanized, soon-to-open Kroger.

News of this potential Poncey-Highland project also comes on the heels of another condo development in the same corridor.

Developer Urban Eco Group is working on the 72-unit Leon on Ponce a few blocks west, in Old Fourth Ward, according to What Now Atlanta.

Those dwellings would sell between the $300,000s and the $600,000s.
