According to the building permit filings, the cost of construction of the clubhouse alone is $1,830,362, while phase one of a five-story multifamily building with 69-units is expected to cost $8,561,979. Several of the other building permits do not have costs listed.

When completed, the project will be comprised of 325 multifamily apartments, including 65 affordable units, according to RangeWater Real Estate. The residential buildings will feature 3-to-5 story buildings with studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments starting at $1,200 for a market rate unit. In addition, the complex will also feature a pool, fitness center, club house and dog park.

The project is located in the Capitol View neighborhood on an 8.5 acre site that was previously home to the Exide Technologies Battery Factory. According to property records, the site was purchased by Allene Avenue LLC for $175,000 in 2006, nearly two decades after Exide Technologies closed the battery factory in 1988. 

Today, the site is in a prime location just south of the Atlanta BeltLine Southside Trail, between Metropolitan Parkway and Allene Avenue. Its within walking distance to the Pittsburgh Yards project, Atlanta Metropolitan State College, Adair Park I, and numerous other destinations in the previously industrial neighborhood.
