A block-altering residential project in Blandtown is continuing to introduce condos in a section of the city, like most, where new housing is more dominated by apartments, townhomes, and single-family builds.

The latest facet of Empire Communities’ Longreen has started coming to market in recent weeks, listing condos (some with two-story layouts) generally larger than what’s previously been offered at the project.

Marketing materials peg the new building’s Longreen Terrace location as being “steps from the BeltLine,” an “eight-minute drive to Westside Park,” and a “four-minute drive to The Works” mixed-use warehouse complex.

Listed condo offerings in the new Longreen building today range from $459,730 (two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,025 square feet, but under contract) to a two-level unit on the top floor asking $584,600 (three bedrooms, two and 1/2 bathrooms, 1,529 square feet).

Both options offer one-car garages at ground level. Monthly HOA fees are listed as $143 for the smaller condo, and $215 for the larger.

Named for a finished, .4-acre public greenspace along Booth Avenue that’s part of the development, Longreen is situated less than a block from the Northwest Trail route the BeltLine picked in 2022 to snake through the area.

The site spans three city blocks and five and ½ previously vacant acres in West Midtown’s historic Blandtown neighborhood.

Once finished, Longreen will include 179 condos and townhomes in the 900 block of Huff Road. An Atlanta Regional Commission grant lent fresh hope last year that multimodal roadway improvements could come to that corridor, allowing alternate means of travel on a road increasingly known for traffic congestion as the area fills in.

As with Empire’s Stein Steel project in Reynoldstown, Longreen has incorporated condos alongside townhomes, which were priced from the low $500,000s. (Empire officials said last summer all townhomes in Longreen’s first phase had sold out.)

Ultimately, the Longreen breakdown will be 152 condos and 27 townhomes, ranging from 600-square-foot one-bedrooms to more standard three-bedroom plans of about 1,800 square feet.

Empire closed on the property in late 2020 and broke ground the following year.

For-sale condominium products have popped up across Atlanta in recent years but remain relatively rare in comparison to new apartments. Examples range from ritzy (Graydon Buckhead) and glassy (Seven88 West Midtown) high-rises, to BeltLine-adjacent boutiques (The Roycraft) and throwback buildings (Kirkwood’s Pullman Flats) that echo their surroundings. 

More recently, for-sale condo ventures have moved forward in locales such as Chosewood Park on the southside and Sandy Springs up north.
