A townhome project coming to market in northwest Atlanta’s Riverside community is being billed as a relatively cheap entrée into Buckhead schools in an underdeveloped area.

The Brock Built Homes venture is called Riverline in homage to the city’s historic (and long-extinct) streetcar system.

Plans call for 52 townhomes to ultimately be built where West Hollywood Road meets Spink Street, between the new Westside Park, the Chattahoochee River, and beyond that, OTP attractions that include The Battery Atlanta.

Brock Built made waves this year with a townhome project in traditionally underserved Bankhead, Ten29 West, with prices topping out near a record $700,000. All listed homes, it should be noted, are under contract there.

While only slightly smaller, Riverline’s initial offerings are priced significantly less than those in Bankhead.

Available homes range from about $520,000 to $532,000 right now, according to recent listings. At least three units (priced from the $490,000s) are under contract, according to Brock Built’s website.

All three-story townhomes listed so far have three bedrooms, three and ½ bathrooms, and more than 2,000 square feet. Each also has a two-car garage and elevated deck.

According to promotional materials, the Riverside community “has seen a great transformation in the last several years” but still “sports charm, luxury, a local garden, five parks, and minimal traffic.” (Woodsy, tucked-away Spink-Collins Park is just around the corner.)

But the chief draw to the area—for families, at least—could be districting that allows kids to attend highly rated Buckhead schools, such as Bolton Academy and North Atlanta High School.

We’ve asked Riverline project reps for updates on where construction stands and pricing details on forthcoming homes. We’ll update this story with any additional info that comes.
