With promises of “panoramic skyline views” and “modern masterpiece” design, a townhome venture in Mechanicsville is selling for prices flirting with a half-million dollars—like this is Bankhead or something.

Named “Vertical Row,” the 11-unit project by Raven Residential Group is coming together just south of downtown, where Bass and Pryor streets meet.

That’s about a block south of Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard and directly across the Connector from Center Parc Stadium and the rest of Summerhill’s explosive redevelopment. Construction started about a year ago.

Carmen Coe, a Keller Knapp Realty agent, tells Urbanize Atlanta that two units have closed so far, with three under contract and two remaining in the first building to finish. Four more townhomes in the project’s second and final building have yet to be listed.

The two claimed units sold last month for $449,900 and $479,900, sales records show. (That’s far from the neighborhood record, however, which is currently held by a 3,200-square-foot home built last year that fetched $750,000 in December.)

According to Coe, all Vertical Row townhomes span four floors, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two half-baths in 2,000 square feet. Prices now begin at $459,000 for interior units, with homes on the end of buildings asking $479,900. 

Listings tout walkability to Summerhill, The Met, Phoenix Park, the BeltLine, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Highlights include 14-foot ceilings on the top floor, where the decks bring “matchless views of the greatest city,” per marketing materials. 

First-level home offices are connected to garages (wired for EVs), and master suites have custom millwork. Overall, the homes are described as an “incredible opportunity with limitless investment potential.”

That enthusiasm continues directly across the street, where a .7-acre bare lot is asking almost $1 million now.
