Carter, in partnership with King & Company and Healey Weatherholtz Properties, has started construction on a 306-unit multifamily community in Atlanta’s Summerhill neighborhood, according to a press release Thursday.
The first units are set to deliver in late spring 2021 and the full development, which includes 8,000 square feet of ground-level retail, is expected to open by fall 2021, overlooking the site of Georgia State University’s future baseball park.
The yet-to-be-named five-story multifamily property will include a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as six live-work units.
Of the one- and two-bedroom residences available, 31 will be reserved for those earning 80 percent of the area median income.
Its exterior will feature a mix of red and charcoal brick to “complement the architectural style of the buildings along Georgia Avenue.”
Most of the units will include balconies and those located on the corner of Glenn Street and Hank Aaron Drive will feature floor-to-ceiling windows.
“This groundbreaking marks another milestone in Summerhill’s growth story, and we’re excited to bring new homes to this dynamic and diverse neighborhood,” Jerome Hagley, executive vice president at Carter, said in the release.
“We remain committed to investing in Atlanta’s Southside and look forward to delivering a place that reflects the character of the historic architecture and the strong sense of community felt in Summerhill.”
Two exterior courtyards will feature a variety of amenities including a pool, multiple seating areas, grilling stations, a fire pit, a dog park, and a pet grooming station.
Residents will also have access to a two-story clubroom with a fireplace, kitchen and meeting space.
Additional amenities include a fitness center with a yoga and spin room, weight machines, and cardio equipment.
The ground-level retail along Hank Aaron Drive will include a mix of restaurants and service providers.
Within walking distance of the apartment community is a string of new eateries along Georgia Avenue including Little Tart Bakeshop, Big Softie, Wood’s Chapel BBQ, Junior’s Pizza, Halfway Crooks, and the soon-to-open Little Bear, D Boca N Boca, Concept, Hero Doughnuts, and Hot Dog Pete’s.
