Planned across from Historic Fourth Ward Park at 690 Angier Avenue N.E., a rare new condo stack near the Beltline called Ten Park East is inching closer to reality.

First reported last June, the controversial original proposal by Live Oak Realty Investments called for a 21-story luxury condo tower on a small lot. However, revised plans indicate a smaller incarnation is in the works.

Planned are 10 residences, one per floor, each with three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Allen Snow of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty, the tower’s listing agent, said each residence will be approximately 3,457 square feet with a private terrace of approximately 475 square feet.

Although not officially on the market yet, pricing actually starts at $2.1 million (contrary to a promotional website’s numbers), he stated. No word yet on HOA fees, as those are expected to be finalized in the next two to three months, per Snow.

Residences will be outfitted with 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows in the main living area, smart technology, and a chef’s kitchen with Viking and/or Sub-Zero appliances, wine storage, and quartz countertops.

On the first two floors of the tower will be a fitness center, a boardroom and micro offices, and bike storage. Atop the tower, a rooftop SkyPark will include an outdoor lounge, kitchen, gardens, dog park, and plunge pool, according to development plans.

Parking will be available onsite using secure robotic parking, an automated parking system that moves cars throughout the parking deck as needed, officials say. A similar concept was once pitched for a downtown high-rise called Aquarius, which never launched.

The latest rendition of Ten Park East was designed by Brock Hudgins Architects, and it’s expected to be built by J.M. Wilkerson. Completion is slated for fall 2020.

When the initial project proposal was filed last year, it drew the ire of some O4W locals.

One resident in particular, Michelle Scheiner, launched an Action Network petition to lobby the Atlanta City Council and zoning review board to rethink developer ambitions.

It’s not clear if the changes to the project were a result of those efforts, but Ten Park East definitely looks to be a much smaller addition to the neighborhood than first planned.

Of course, it certainly won’t be alone, given the forthcoming New City project expected to rise across the street.

The Atlanta developer recently submitted plans for the project’s first phase, which is expected to include 350 apartments, a 140-key hotel, 600,000 square feet of office space, and 50,000 square feet of retail.
