More detailed renderings lend a fresh perspective on how 60 residences, offices, retail spaces, and 63 embedded parking spaces are materializing on less than an acre of Kirkwood land right now.

Vertical construction has begun on Pullman Flats, a boutique mixed-use project across the street from Pratt Pullman District that’s being called eastside Atlanta’s first ground-up new condo building in a decade.

The Proxima Residential project was designed by McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture, which has published the renderings. The overall look of the building nods to the historic, 27-acre Pratt Pullman District across the street, where large-scale development and other work is moving forward after film production group Atomic Entertainment purchased the site in early 2017 for $8 million.

The architecture firm—in operation since 1955, with offices speckled around the Carolinas in addition to Atlanta's—also recently designed The Maxwell mixed-use venture in downtown Alpharetta and another called 100 Prince in Athens.

LaCressa Morrow, a Keller Williams Realty agent handling Pullman Flats presales, told Urbanize Atlanta earlier this month a quarter of the Pullman Flats condos are under contract.

One-bedroom options now start at $294,900 and two-bedrooms at $369,900.

Sales for the remaining studios—with plans of 441 square feet that previously offered rare new sub-$200,000 eastside buying options—are now on hold, Morrow said.

At street level, shop spaces are expected to span 2,200 square feet total, with another 7,700 square feet of offices or other commercial spaces on the second and third floors in front.

Elsewhere, the building’s plans call for a rooftop deck and grilling station, a clubroom with a bar, a communal terrace on the fourth floor, a fitness center, and a dog-washing room.

Meanwhile, across the street at Pratt Pullman District, Alliance Residential is building 354 apartments expected to deliver early next year, and an immersion event into the world of Vincent Van Gogh has created a national buzz months before its North American debut.

Since the Great Recession, apartments have sprung up by the thousands in eastside neighborhoods, but multifamily builds with for-sale units have lagged that trend.

Beyond Kirkwood, full condo buildings and apartment conversions have landed financing and materialized in Midtown and Buckhead, and plans for smaller condo ventures are also moving forward in Old Fourth Ward (Airline) and elsewhere (The Roycraft in Virginia-Highland) along the BeltLine.
