The developer plans to break ground soon at Confederate and Avondale avenues.

The residential development will be a brownfield redevelopment project near the Beltline‘s planned Southside Trail. RocaPoint began land remediation in 2013 for Phase 1 of the project, which will include 120 townhomes by Edward Andrews Homes. Pricing for Phase 1 units will “likely” start around $280,000, according to a press release.

Once remediation is complete for the next phase, that will include 200 apartments, a 3-acre public green space and a path connecting to the Beltline.

Patrick Leonard, principal of RocaPoint Partners, is a huge fan of the Beltline: “To be associated with the BeltLine is a huge deal in Atlanta, and people are excited to live on, and therefore develop near, the trails. It has encouraged walkability, promoted a healthy lifestyle and addressed environmental issues, and we want this community to weave seamlessly into that culture.”

A brownfield site, acccording to the Environmental Protection Agency, is a real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Over 123 acres have been enrolled in Georgia’s brownfield program.
