Selig Enterprises Monday announced construction has begun on 550 North Highland, a new 16-unit townhome community adjacent Manuel’s Tavern.
Homes will feature three and four-bedroom plans and average 2,400 square feet each.
Pricing has not yet been disclosed.
The community will be exclusively marketed and sold by Engel & Völkers Atlanta.
“Actively developing in this neighborhood is something Selig is very proud of,” Steve Baile, chief operating and development officer of Selig Development, said in the announcement.
“Manuel’s Tavern is an Atlanta institution. When we were approached to help continue the legacy of the tavern and also have the opportunity to build new homes in the walkable, vibrant Poncey-Highland neighborhood, we knew it was a great opportunity.”
550 North Highland townhomes were designed by Atlanta-based architect Jerry Spangler of TSW and will be constructed by Monte Hewett Homes as the general contractor.
The three-story townhomes will feature partially covered rooftop patios.
Streetscape improvements will include sidewalk widening, landscaping, replanting of mature trees, and improved street lighting.
Additionally, Selig will be realigning Williams Mill Road, installing a crosswalk for the eastern parking lot of Manuel’s Tavern and adding a large patio for the tavern.
Construction is underway and will finish late 2020.
In 2015, Selig purchased three parcels of property from the Maloof family, owners of Manuel’s Tavern, with plans to first complete renovations on the restaurant followed by new development on the adjacent property.
Selig managed renovation construction for Manuel’s Tavern which reopened in late 2016.
Manuel’s Tavern entered a long-term lease with Selig.
Selig in 2018 had the property rezoned and construction began in May 2019.
