More than four years since the demolition of a former warehouse on site, a unique residential infill project is continuing to expand its footprint where Edgewood meets Kirkwood on Atlanta’s eastside.

Billed as “Atlanta’s premiere, for-lease, luxury townhome and condo community,” the LaFrance Square project has continued to erect new buildings this year where its namesake LaFrance Street meets Arizona Avenue.

The site is located a block west of the Pullman Yards food and entertainment district, a little less than a mile from MARTA’s Edgewood-Candler Park station.

Promising “the buzz of Kirkwood,” current rental options at LaFrance Square start at $3,450 monthly. (Only townhomes are marketed as being available now.)

That rents a two-bedroom, two and ½-bathroom floorplan called the Oakford with 1,661 square feet—spread across a whopping five stories, including the rooftop terrace.

The community’s largest options, the four-story Whitefoord plan, have three bedrooms and three and ½ bathrooms in 1,800 square feet. Those start at $4,000 monthly.

Developers with The Ardent Companies have previously said LaFrance Square will include 102 units when finished.

We’ve reached out to Ardent officials for more information on construction, and we’ll update this story should that come. RangeWater Real Estate now lists the project among its portfolio online, too.

LaFrance Square joins hundreds of other rental townhome options that have been popping up across the city in recent years

From Peoplestown and Pittsburgh to Grant Park and the ever-changing eastside, residential developers have been making substantial bets on what’s marketed as the best of both worlds for renters: Units large enough to offer “the privacy and comfort of owning a home” but with “all the flexibility and convenience of leasing,” as LaFrance Square’s website puts it.
