With a glass-half-full slogan like “One Step Ahead of the Beltline,” a sizable new townhome project in Boulevard Heights has been a hit with buyers, even before most of it’s ready for inhabitation, developers tell Curbed Atlanta.
Officials representing The Swift—a batch of some 120 residences rising from brownfields at the cusp of Grant Park—have shared project photos and news that the first three phases have sold out.
Closings of 60 contracts began in December, with prices that’d started in the $380,000s. Sizes of two and three-bedroom units range from 1,789 to 2,070 square feet.
The fourth of seven phases opens in March, priced from the high $300,000s to low $400,000s. Overall, more than half of the project has been claimed before the model home has opened, officials said.
Billed as an assault on sameness, The Swift’s “new urban architecture” incorporates “a modern Victorian color palette, bold use of metal accents, cantilevered porches, and a variety of purposeful floorplans,” per marketing materials.
Elsewhere in the community, expect numerous bike racks and unique communal aspects that include an amphitheater, pavilion, public park, fire pit, and community garden.
But buyers in the area holding out for the Southside Trail—a gateway to basically everything from West End to Piedmont Park—should be patient.
Beltline officials have said the four-mile stretch linking the Eastside and Westside trails isn’t likely to deliver for several years.
