In places like Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, and Edgewood, the past year has produced a housing trend that’s relatively new to intown Atlanta: communities of rental townhouses being built from the ground up.

That’s continuing now near the northern fringes of Grant Park, where a 246-unit luxury apartment project called Link is flanked by a dozen three-story townhomes, all for rent.

The Grubb Properties project has taken shape on 4 acres next to the adaptive-reuse GlenCastle creative office campus, replacing the 1930s school building that most recently housed Atlanta Arts Exchange. The two projects are linked via a green plaza.

Located a couple of blocks west of the Atlanta BeltLine, it marks the North Carolina-based developer’s 11th project under the Link name, according to Multi-Housing News.

Beyond quick access to the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, interim Southside Trail, Krobar, and what could be Georgia’s busiest Chick-fil-A, amenities at the five-story apartment building include a dog wash station, saltwater pool with sundeck, a yoga studio, and a gym that never closes.

That’ll cost, as a starting point, between $1,422 and $1,830 per month, for what’s considered a one-bedroom of 492 square feet.

Two-bedroom townhome options, meanwhile, with 1,570 square feet rent for between $3,249 and $3,564 monthly. Two-car garages and balconies come with those.

According to marketing materials, Link homes are appointed with washers and dryers, USB outlets, granite countertops, chef’s kitchens, and designer cabinetry.
