Located at 842 Berne St. SE, just south of Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School, the five-story project will include 194 apartments, with 88 one-bedroom units, 95 two-bedrooms, and 11 three-bedrooms across 227,700 square feet of floor area, the latest site plans show. The project will provide a 300-space parking deck along with 20 bicycle spaces.

Permit filings indicate a slightly smaller project than was initially planned. Avila had proposed a 220-unit project at the BeltLine-adjacent site in 2016, What Now Atlanta reported at the time. Based in Atlanta, Avila, which has about 6,000 residential units under management in the city, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Avila’s latest progress at 842 Berne follows issuance in June of a permit for land development and infrastructure at the approximately 135,000-square-foot project site. Amenities at 842 Berne will include a club room, fitness center, and resort-style pool, according to the developer’s website.

I’ve seen some activity on that site and was hoping it was going to be literally anything other than another 5-story McPartment building.
