The Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard of, say, a decade ago, was a relatively barren, post-industrial furniture district, but recent times have brought vitality by way of a hip driving range and the relocated incarnation of a top 10 Atlanta restaurant.

The corridor’s people-friendly evolution could continue in a significant way with an under-construction townhome venture called “The Chelsea Westside,” which is planned to ultimately bring 92 residences to a deep lot.

Rising along Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard, just south of attractions that include Topgolf Atlanta, Bacchanalia, and Bone Garden Cantina, the project expects to begin delivering this spring, said Pam Ahern, community sales manager with developer ICON Residential, the same group behind Reynolds Square townhomes on Moreland Avenue.

“We have just released Phase II to the public and are almost 50 percent sold between the two phases,” Ahern told Curbed Atlanta recently.

Ultimately, The Chelsea Westside will be served in four or five phases, with completion roughly projected in 2020.

Expect a price range, for now, between the low $400,000s and mid-$700,000s, with nine different floorplans.

At the cheaper end, $419,900 bags a two-bedroom, two-and-1/2-bathroom stack with 1,616 square feet, a full roof deck, and single-car garage.

The one townhome at $747,900 counts nearly 2,900 square feet, an elevator, potential three-car garage, and optional second kitchen.

Rooftop options “include things like a fireplace, a hot tub, a built-in grill with counter and cabinets, a wet bar with beverage refrigerator and cabinet, and turf,” Ahern noted.

Amenities beyond the residences include a pool, grilling area, bocce ball court, and dog park. Another perk: Homes are zoned for Buckhead’s E. Rivers Elementary, Sutton Middle, and North Atlanta High School.

Future attractions in the area will include Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry, what’ll likely be one of the last Beltline stretches, and a longterm adaptive-reuse venture by Selig Development call The Works.

But maybe, in the short term, the expected infusion of residents will spell good things for Ellsworth Industrial’s approachability by foot and bike, because it’s not exactly welcoming as is.
