Legions of Atlantans who’ve called for more for-sale multifamily housing options as opposed to intown rentals might want to take note of what’s happening in Reynoldstown.

Along a newly created street called Beardon Circle, a unique multifamily section of the BeltLine-adjacent Stein Steel development is starting to rise from red clay on the neighborhood’s western flank. Demolition at the former steel plant started nearly two years ago, and developer Empire Communities considers ongoing work phase two.

Three brick-clad buildings, dubbed the Stein Steel Milltown portion of the project, will be set back from the Eastside Trail, relative to other housing options around the 6.5-acre site.

The Milltown section includes single-level flats and multi-level stacks, each with parking in dedicated slots at ground level.

The first condos—err, “Stack Residences” and “Stack Quarters”—have recently started listing.

They range from, at the smallest and least expensive end, floorplans called the Friend, to multi-level options called the Composer.

For $338,825, a Friend buyer would get one bedroom, one bathroom, and perks such as quartz countertops and a “gourmet kitchen” in 691 square feet. One covered garage space at the building’s base is included, too.

The priciest and biggest floorplan to date—the Composer—offers two bedrooms, two and ½ bathrooms, and a walk-in closet, with a two-car tandem garage space down below. The asking price: $578,094.

HOA fees are noted on listings services as being $245 monthly.

Replacing land previously occupied by piles of steel, heavy equipment, and gravel lots, Stein Steel will see dozens of housing units arranged around new streets, a greenspace component, and an adaptive-reuse restaurant and bar called Breaker Breaker fronting the BeltLine. (The team overseeing the restaurant component hasn’t responded to recent inquiries about where that project stands.)
