Move-ins have begun at a tucked-away residential development that’s offering some of the least expensive (though not necessarily cheap) new-build living options across the City of Decatur right now.
Continuing the slow urbanization of east Decatur, national homebuilder Toll Brothers began construction last year on New Talley Station, a community of “stacked towns” condos and townhomes being built on former parking lots off South Columbia Drive.
It’s a few blocks southeast of downtown Decatur, around the corner from MARTA’s Avondale station.
Listings records indicate about two dozen units are under contract now, priced from the low $400,000s up to $805,000.
The 141-unit project continues a push for density in Decatur’s most eastern blocks, where another multifamily Toll Brothers build, Notion, expects to open this summer, and North Carolina-developer Northwood Ravin is planning nearly 400 apartments that could consume a full block, among other projects.
New Talley Street condos (without contracts) now start at $454,995, and townhomes at $734,995. Listings indicate some condos will be ready in January 2023, with more townhomes delivering between this month and next summer.
The smaller two-bedroom flats span from 1,136 to more than 1,500 square feet. That gets either two or two and ½ bathrooms, a one-car garage, and a driveway.
Meanwhile, the more traditional, four-story townhomes will have two designs. Each includes four bedrooms, two-car garages, roof terraces, and roughly 2,540 square feet. Toll Brothers reps have pointed out that all New Talley Station options are using steel-frame construction.
As for location, the townhomes are rising across the street from sparkly new Talley Street Elementary School and close to the new East Decatur Greenway, a link toward the 19-mile PATH system between downtown Atlanta and Stone Mountain.
