Years in the making, a boutique community of Poncey-Highland townhomes that claimed what used to be Manuel’s Tavern’s main parking lot is coming to market.

Despite a citywide shelter-in-place order in light of coronavirus concerns, Engel & Völkers Atlanta reps report that 550 North Highland, a 16-townhome Selig Development project, is still expected to see its first units delivered this summer.

The three-story offerings, built by Monte Hewett Homes, will average about 2,400 square feet with three or four bedrooms where North Highland Avenue meets Williams Mill Road. Prices are expected to range from the high $700,000s to mid-$800,000s.

Each townhome will be fronted by a small private courtyard and topped with indoor and outdoor terraces.

Listings so far span from a three-bedroom option for $805,000 to a four-bedroom asking $865,000. Both span 2,731 square feet, with four and a half bathrooms and monthly HOA commitments of $283, per listings.

The overall look and choice of finishes is meant to be “a key differentiator that adds to the exclusivity of the community and creates an environment that feels independent of current trends,” Sam Morgan, Engel & Volkers Atlanta’s sales director, said in a recent announcement.

The project marks the first boutique townhome community for Selig, a firm with Atlanta roots dating to 1918.
