Summerhill, the redevelopment of the neighborhood around Georgia State University Stadium, is ramping up with a slate of new homes announced for the mixed-use project.
Carter, in partnership with King & Company and Healey Weatherholtz Properties, broke ground this week on a 306-unit multifamily community at 565 Hank Aaron Drive. The first units are set to deliver in late spring 2021 with the full development, which includes 8,000 square feet of ground-level retail, opening in fall. The building will overlook the site of Georgia State University’s future baseball park.
The 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. To complement the architectural style of the buildings along Georgia Avenue, the exterior will feature a mix of red and charcoal brick.
Designed to bring neighbors together, two exterior courtyards will feature a variety of amenities for residents to enjoy, 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, a full range of weight machines and cardio equipment. For added convenience, the apartment building will also feature a package room with a full-service management system and a secured, structured parking deck.
Not far away, Alliance Residential has purchased five acres at 100 Fulton Street to create Broadstone Summerhill apartments. Construction will begin before year’s end and is scheduled to be open for residents in 2021.
Broadstone Summerhill will consist of three five-story buildings, containing 276 studio, one and two-bedroom apartments averaging 729 square feet. The development will pull design elements from the Victorian accents of Historic Grant Park homes and inspiration from boutique retailers along Georgia Avenue. Modern multi-use amenities will include a resort-style pool, clubroom, fitness center, flexible indoor /outdoor spaces and a top-floor sky lounge with views of the Atlanta skyline.
Hedgewood Homes is already building a community of 100 homes simply known as Summerhill at the intersection of Fraser and Bass streets featuring two and three story residences with community and private gardens, porches, and rooftops decks. The first homes are expected to be complete by year’s end with prices starting in the $300,000 range.
