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 1⁄2 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 1⁄2 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 1⁄2 to the northwest in coming years.
Drawings indicate the community will include a pool and clubhouse, if it doesn’t already.
