Days are numbered for a long-vacant corner lot where two coveted intown neighborhoods meet.

Atlanta-based Ballast Design Build has broken ground on an infill townhome project at 460 Connally St. SE, a property raised from the street that’s been an empty lot for more than 15 years.

The Grant Park site is located at the southeast corner of Connally Street’s intersection with Fulton Street, about two blocks west of Hill Street and just south of Interstate 20.

Summerhill’s commercial hotspot Georgia Avenue is half a dozen blocks to the south.

Building permit records indicate four townhomes will be built on the Summerhill corner, each standing three stories on the .29-acre property.

Fulton County property records indicate Ballast purchased the lot for $675,000 in the fall of 2022. Company signage has been installed at the site for more than a year.

We’ve reached out to Ballast for more information on the townhomes and construction timelines, and we’ll update this story should further details come. For now, find a closer look in the gallery above.

[UPDATE: 12:40 p.m. Jan. 16: Ballast's Adam Laverack responds with the following; see additional blueprints in the gallery now as well: "We are currently working on the [land development] phase of the project and intend to be 100 percent completed in about nine months. All four of the units will be for sale."]
