The “Upper Westside” moniker for a section of northwest Atlanta south of Vinings and west of Buckhead has taken flak over the years for, according to critics, attempting to evoke Manhattan in what used to be a warehouse and railroad district.
But the Upper Westside counts its own Community Improvement District, a giant branding mural, and mixed-use hits like the 19-acre Westside Village and The Works (voted Atlanta’s best project opening of 2021) that proudly brandish the nickname.
In another sign that Upper Westside branding could be all but permanent, the area’s latest multifamily development has the tagline baked into its name.
As the latest project in Alliance Residential Company’s growing portfolio around Atlanta, Broadstone Upper Westside officially opened in recent weeks with 314 units in the Bolton neighborhood.
Apartments in the seven-story complex range from studios (starting at $1,490), to one-bedrooms ($1,670) up to two-bedrooms ($2,250), according to Alliance reps.
Spread across 12 acres, the complex is tucked off Marietta Boulevard, just north of Crest Lawn Cemetery.
Food-and-drink attractions in the immediate area include Nuevo Laredo Cantina, Scofflaw Brewing Co., Hankook Taqueria, and Round Trip Brewing Company. Competing apartments Vue at the Quarter opened around the corner, also on Bolton Drive, a couple of years ago.
Pulte Homes’ Altus at the Quarter townhomes are also next door, priced from the $700,000s for two to four-bedroom options.
Alliance’s managing director Noah Randall says the Broadstone Upper Westside property’s attributes include 15-minute proximity to downtown and a peaceful setting situated off a main artery.
Amenity areas are certainly dotted with interesting touches. Those include a tennis ball dispenser in the requisite pet spa. A dry-cleaning kiosk. A lounge with a record player and vintage vinyl. A Skee-Ball machine and vintage video arcade in the game room. And, continuing the throwback theme, what’s described as a retro-inspired TV den.
Elsewhere in Atlanta, Alliance has most recently began a 278-unit apartment project off Memorial Drive near Oakland Cemetery and finished Broadstone Pullman in Kirkwood.
Other Alliance projects include Broadstone Summerhill, The Irby in Buckhead, and Broadstone communities near the town centers of Norcross and Sugar Hill in Gwinnett.
