After selling out its first batch of homes in Boulevard Heights, Empire Communities may be on a fast track to doing the same with Phase II of Empire Swift, a 198-unit townhome community still rising near the edges of the Grant Park neighborhood.
The developer has sold 20 of 76 second-phase homes since selling out the entire 122-home Phase I, Saba Loghman, Empire Communities’ director of acquisitions, tells What Now Atlanta. Sales for the additional 76 homes started in November, with prices for the two- and three-bedroom townhomes – which range from 1,100 to 1,400 square feet – starting in the high $300,000s.
The Swift development as a whole is one of Atlanta’s largest for-sale projects to deliver in recent years, rising on an over one-acre parcel along Avondale Avenue SE. With an array of colors and styles and amenities like an amphitheater, community garden, and pavilion, the community is being marketed to anyone from millennials to new empty nesters, according to the developer.
Empire Swift is also within about half a mile of the Southside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine Southside Trail by way of its own spur trail running through the community.
Empire Swift marks one of a handful the developer lays claim to in the Atlanta market. Others include 4Forty4, with prices starting from the low $400,000s in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, and Albright, where homes start in the $400,000s in Vinings. The company is also move-in ready in the Kirkwood neighborhood with its 66-unit Paintbox community, where prices start in the mid $300,000s.
