The idea for Freedom Bridge Atlanta — a means for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other non-drivers to safety travel to and from Freedom Park over Moreland — started gaining traction two years ago. Now, it has a visual.
Listed this week at $949,900, the circa-1920, light-green property casts a handsome and gutter-free visage in a neighborhood known for traditional jaw-droppers. The listing agent shouts, simply, "This is it!"
MARTA is barreling down the tracks with station-adjacent transit oriented developments, breaking ground Monday on a $40 million mixed-use center featuring a performing arts center, apartments, and retail, adjacent to Edgewood/Candler Park station.
Christened "Spoke," the TOD will erase underutilized parking spaces — of 25,000 at all MARTA stations, less than half are actually used — at Edgewood/Candler Park station and erect 224 "premium apartment homes" by early 2018. No word yet on rent.
This five-building project is consuming a deep lot on LaFrance Street. Renderings suggest the buildings will be three stories each with multiple outdoor spaces and drive-under garages. A new sidewalk will flank the residences.
A one-minute stumble from Little Five Points, this expanded and upgraded Candler Park bungalow should check a lot of boxes for Atlanta homebuyers on the prowl for authenticity, vintage style, and sheer living space.
It seems to be one of the higher priced pieces of real estate nearby, so will "pristine hardwood floors, wood staircase with iron balusters, gorgeous heavy trim and molding beautiful accented doors" as described in the listing make it a worthy buy?
