A year after it opened, Atlanta’s largest greenspace is again proving itself a magnet for large-scale, relatively dense development west of Midtown and downtown.

Like Brock Built’s Ten29 West project, which keeps setting sales records in Bankhead, a townhome venture by national homebuilder Ashton Woods is coming together within quick walking or biking distance of Westside Park—but on a much larger scale.  

Called Park Vue, the gated community in Rockdale is replacing a long-shuttered warehouse facility on Johnson Road with what’s planned to be nearly 300 townhomes once finished. Westside Park, which debuted its first phase of 280 acres last August, is across the street to the south.

Sales of four different floorplans at Park Vue recently began, with prices starting at $419,000 for two-story options. The largest three-story units, the Brycen plans, start at $498,000, per marketing materials. All include one-car garages, with either two or three bedrooms.

The options range from 1,362 to 1,600 square feet, so the sprawling townhome floorplans of something like Residences at Studioplex these are not. But they could make for downsizing or first-time homebuying contenders.  

The bold exterior colors shown in renderings bring to mind another rainbow-hued townhome community in the area, M West, which was built about 15 years ago. Though the similarities pretty much end there.

About 30 townhomes at Park Vue have been sold to date, according to Ashton Woods’ promotional website.

The first round of units is expected to be finished by year’s end, and others by early spring next year, per listings. Amenities will eventually include a communal pool with cabanas and an onsite pond.

A recent project announcement notes the proximity of Park Vue’s 293 planned townhomes to everything from Atlantic Station and the Georgia Aquarium to the “Mercedes Benz Superdome.”

“This charming West Midtown community is surrounded by historical legacy neighborhoods, urban lofts, local art galleries, live music venues, and booming businesses,” reads the official project spiel. “After a quick commute home from work in downtown Atlanta or Buckhead, stop into one of the local breweries, grab dinner at a trending restaurant, or take a stroll across the street to Westside Reservoir Park and unwind.”

We’ve asked for more details regarding the timeline for completing all Park Vue phases, and we’ll post additional info that comes. In the meantime, head up to the gallery for a closer look at what’s happening just beyond Westside Park’s northern fringes.
