UPDATE (November 16, 2018): Edge Nears Completion, Announces New Amenities Including Palm Tree Oasis
North American Properties (NAP) this week broke ground on Edge, an $80 million mixed-use community on the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail.
NAP, the commercial real estate developer credited with the revitalization of Atlantic Station, is also “reimagining” Midtown’s Colony Square.
“In partnership with Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) and The Conservation Fund Partner, NAP will transform an environmentally contaminated site into a vibrant gathering place that will enhance the trail’s safety and artful energy,” according to an announcement Thursday.
Edge will offer 29,000 square feet of “experiential retail,” indoor/outdoor dining, loft offices, and a pedestrian bridge over the trail to connect it all.
Out of the 350 residential units, 30 percent will be dedicated to affordable workforce housing for the portion of the property purchased from ABI.
The retail and residential components of Edge will open in early spring 2019.
“The BeltLine has spurred exciting growth as it continues to create unique and memorable destinations such as Ponce City Market and Krog Street Market. We are excited about the opportunity to add Edge to the list of energy-driven developments creating a true sense of place,” Richard Munger, partner and vice president of development with NAP, said in the announcement.
“We have worked closely with our BeltLine neighbors to curate a gathering place that will complement the BeltLine experience and bring fresh new dining, retail, working and living options to the Eastside Trail.”
