From the edge of MARTA tracks to the bustle of Moreland Avenue and Memorial Drive, townhomes and duplexes have sprung up across Reynoldstown in recent years.
The latest semi-detached cluster is claiming an empty corner lot a couple of blocks from both Moreland and the recently extended Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail.
Collectively, the six-unit duplex community is called The Alley, and prices begin 100 bucks shy of $700,000, according to initial Keller Knapp Realty listings.
With street frontage along Arkwright Place and, yes, alley access behind, the project is coming out of the ground less than a block from Mattie Branch, another under-construction Reynoldstown multifamily community.
Listings cite everything from Madison Yards and Krog Street Market to Lang-Carson Park as proof that The Alley “provides an unparalleled intown living experience, customized for the modern lifestyle.”
Each option has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, two-car garages, and covered rooftops described as private and “matchless.”
Of the two home listings thus far, $699,900 buys 2,318 square feet (the 1100 plan below), while $749,900 gets 2,457 square feet next door.
A planned Beltline link—The Trolley Line Trail—is expected to be built along what’s basically The Alley’s doorstep, providing a PATH route that would extend to points east, including Edgewood, Kirkwood, and on to Decatur.
