Lincoln Property Company recently announced that VIBE at Echo Street West, a 292-unit apartment community, will begin first resident move-ins in January 2023.
With construction nearing completion at VIBE, the first phase of Echo Street West, including creative office space, retail and restaurant space, an events venue, artist colony and 3.4 acres of outdoor entertainment and greenspace, is on target to fully deliver in the summer of 2023.
Pre-leasing for VIBE has begun with 20 percent of the units affordable at 80 percent area median income (AMI). The community features a mix of floor plans consisting of studios and one and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 455 to 1,634 square feet. On the street level of the five-floor building will be 25,000 square feet of retail, including outdoor dining and vibrant storefronts fronting Echo Street and the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Connector Trail.
Echo Street West is already home to Guardian Works, an adaptive reuse event venue, Guardian Studios, a former factory warehouse turned artist community, and Westside Motor Lounge, a new indoor-outdoor entertainment venue. The four-story, 300,000-square-foot office building at Echo Street West, 765 Echo, is also on track for completion this spring.
“The cornerstone of any mixed-use development is the community,” Tony Bartlett, executive vice president at Lincoln Property Company, said in a press release. “This wave of residents at VIBE will be the first to experience ‘the village of ideas’ right at their doorstep. Whether it’s an art exhibit at Guardian Studios, dinner and drinks at Westside Motor Lounge or walk along the BeltLine, VIBE residents will experience the vibrancy of the Westside without ever having to get in their car.”
VIBE offers numerous entries and exits as part of Echo Street West’s “no front door” concept, integrating the resident experience with the rest of the village’s retail, restaurant, entertainment and greenspace amenities.
Additionally, residents will enjoy rooftop decks and balconies with views of the BeltLine, wine fridges and a modern pool with cabanas. Future residents will have access to amenities that “elevate their living experience,” such as a bicycle storage area with repair shop that can accommodate up to 100 bikes, a podcast studio, maker’s room, pet spa, outdoor courtyard for open-air workouts, fitness center, and 4,000 square feet of rooftop space.
