Condo and townhome market brightens along the BeltLine

Nowhere in Atlanta is the rebounding condo and townhome market more evident than along the soon-to-open Eastside BeltLine Trail. There you'll find -- gasp! -- new construction. This was inconceivable just a few months ago given the glut of condos and townhomes for sale. Location (x3) overcomes sluggish market forces on this amenity-rich linear park.

First place for supreme placement of new home construction goes to Highland Park, a new development of 66 townhomes by John Wieland Homes at the juncture of Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward. The development sits across the trail from Inman Park Village and will feature direct access to the trail. This location also links to the Freedom Parkway trail system.

These homes will be built facing the BeltLine, a practice sure to be adopted by existing buildings and commercial space along the bicycle superhighway and future transit line. These structures presented their less attractive side to the corridor when it was a freight line. Now they will have secondary storefronts and fascades to welcome trail and transit users.

Owners of traditionally-styled Highland Park homes will have easy access by foot or bicycle to some of the best parks, shopping, and dining that Atlanta has to offer like the Historic Old Fourth Ward Park and Ponce City Market, now under construction.

Stay tuned as we cover other exciting new construction along the Eastside trail. All of this adds up to a compelling example of the BeltLine as an upgrade of our city to Atlanta 2.0.
