A large batch of new townhomes taking shape in East Atlanta is being billed as an affordable ownership alternative for intown dwellers.

Construction launched last month at a community called Eastland Gates, located about a mile and 12 south of the EAV—basically equidistant to the village and Starlight Drive-In Theatre, off Moreland Avenue.

The new project will bring 84 units to the existing homes on site, which have stood for at least a decade.

Two different, three-level floorplans are being offered—the Lawson and the Lynden—and each unit will start at $274,900. Prices can climb to the low $300,000s depending on end-unit premiums and upgrade options, David Bascoe, a real estate advisor with Engel & Volkers, tells Curbed Atlanta.

Homes are expected (ambitiously) to be ready by January, Bascoe said.

It’s the work of Brookhaven-based Rockhaven Homes, a builder with projects that span from Virginia-Highland to Chastain and Johns Creek.

All homes will tally 1,850 square feet with three and 12 bathrooms, though layouts can be four or three bedrooms. The complex is gated, and each unit will have two-car, rear-entry garages.

Per marketing materials, amenities include “amazing proximity to all that Atlanta offers from the Beltline to Grant Park!” The Beltline’s planned Southside Trail will cut about a mile and 12 to the northwest in coming years.

Drawings indicate the community will include a pool and clubhouse, if it doesn’t already.
