The latest evidence of investment in Mechanicsville comes with rare promises of rooftop views to not Ponce City Market or Midtown but Georgia’s statehouse, the Gold Dome.
A project called Vertical Row is moving forward just south of downtown in Mechanicsville, where Bass and Pryor streets meet, about a block south of Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard and directly across the Connector from Georgia State Stadium, a project rep tells Curbed Atlanta.
The gated community—an 11-unit venture by Raven Residential Group—is promising unobstructed views of downtown from generous rooftops. The location, per a promotional website, is “ideal for access to restaurants, schools, shopping, and the Beltline.”
Prices are expected to begin in the $400,000s.
Expect three bedrooms with each option, plus two full and two half-bathrooms, in just shy of 1,900 square feet.
Planned perks beyond the downtown views: quartz waterfall islands in kitchens, optional electric-car chargers, and vaulted ceilings in media rooms that adjoin the rooftop decks.
While changes haven’t been as pronounced as those in neighboring communities, such as Summerhill, Mechanicsville has seen its share of home renovations in recent years, with some listings pegging it as the city’s next hot locale.
On nearby Crumley Street, it’s worth noting, a corner-lot project consisting of modern-style Mechanicsville duplexes saw larger units fetch close to $400,000 in 2018.
UPDATE: April 9, 1:37 p.m. This article has been updated to reflect that the townhomes will begin in the $400,00s, and not the high $400,000s, as stated on a promotional website.
