If development keeps at this pace in Cobb County, the Cumberland area could be just a few years out from making its own bid for the Super Bowl.
Well, perhaps not.
But the once very suburban community is becoming denser and more urban by the day, making it one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Southeast, per developers fueling the growth.
Continuing the trend, Alliance Residential recently announced it had wrapped construction on the second phase of its high-end apartment complex Broadstone Ridge.
Situated a mile from the still relatively new SunTrust Park, the rental community now offers 278 apartments—163 just delivered—and more than 16,000 square feet of swanky amenity space.
Broadstone Ridge is comprised of one- and two-bedroom options with rents ranging from about $1,400 to $2,400.
The singles can be as small as 700 square feet, and larger units span about 1,400 square feet.
Features include “an elevated sky lounge with a direct view of SunTrust Park, a community coworking space, an open-air entertainment center, a resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and multiple clubrooms, courtyards, and gathering spaces,” according to a news release.
Renters can also expect places to rent bikes, inner-tubes, and other outdoor gear—an effort to capitalize on proximity to the Chattahoochee River and nearby trail systems. Plus, there’s access to the coveted, elusive Google Fiber.
Situated just north of where Interstate 75 meets the 285 Perimeter’s northwest border, Broadstone Ridge offers highway access for commuters and proximity to Cobb County job hubs, such as the TyssenKrupp Elevator headquarters planned at The Battery.
Now, if only Mary Norwood’s dream of linking Buckhead to Cobb County with a rail system would materialize, the area would really be cooking with gas.
