A once-tired 1960s apartment complex emerged in Sweet Auburn with a new name (The Avery) and look last year, touting skyline views, Beltline and MARTA walkability, and one-block proximity to Edgewood Avenue attractions. Now, it’s set a sales record.
In the 1920s and 1930s, Sweet Auburn was the heart of African American Atlanta, providing housing, shopping, and cultural attractions. Now, that legacy will be revisited with the Sweet Auburn Ballroom, planned to enliven Jesse Hill Jr. Drive, just a block from Edgewood Avenue.
This particular unit, listed last week at $625,000, is full of wide-open spaces and sleek, non-Depot finishes that don’t smack as cliche. With three bedrooms and four and 1⁄2 bathrooms, it counts 2,373 square feet, a two-car garage, and at least three outdoor spaces.
