A BeltLine-adjacent project envisioned as the antidote to stick-built midrise apartments and ubiquitous glass boxes has officially arrived.

The first residential component at New City Properties’ potentially billion-dollar, multiphase Fourth Ward Project, Overline Residences, began moving in its first residents over the summer and is now considered complete, officials tell Urbanize Atlanta in a project update that includes new photography.

The 359-unit, stair-stepped apartment stack—designed to echo Brooklyn brownstones with its red brick—is more than 40 percent leased, following a pre-leasing campaign that project leaders are calling successful.

The 18-story building, a joint venture between New City and Chicago-based LAMB Properties, marks the first in Atlanta designed by New York City’s Morris Adjmi Architects. That firm’s portfolio includes well-known works like Williamsburg’s Wythe Hotel and DUMBO’s Front & York. (Read our Q&A picking the lead architect's brain here.)

The largest Overline apartments are two and three-story “maisonettes” with private entrances that open to Historic Fourth Ward Park, some with private balconies and terraces. In-unit perks for each apartment include floor-to-ceiling windows, custom cabinetry, oversized closets, and hardwood floors.

Apartments will also include pool and spa access at the under-construction Social Club & Hotel—the lodging component of Fourth Ward Project’s initial phase—next door. Project officials say a skybridge is being installed to link the apartments with the hotel in time for its opening sometime in 2024.

Market-rate rents at the 18-story, brick-clad building start at $1,868 monthly right now. Photography by Douglas Friedman; courtesy of New City Properties

Other Overline perks are listed as valet parking, a terrace overlooking Historic Fourth Ward Park, walkability to the BeltLine and Ponce City Market, a fitness center and 24/7 rec room with a multi-sport simulator, and a subterranean parking garage with EV charging stations.

Remaining market-rate apartments at Overline Residences start at $1,868 per month. That rents a studio unit with just over 500 square feet.

The largest three-bedroom, two-bathroom options currently available cost $8,606 monthly for 2,560 square feet across four stories, including the outdoor rooftop. 

That's a tall ask as Atlanta rents go—and more than the priciest but smaller units at Ponce City Market's new Signal House tower—but it's far from the neighborhood's most expensive new apartments.
