Love it or hate it, one corner of Moreland Avenue is typifying the evolution of intown residential architecture right now in many BeltLine neighborhoods. Especially on the eastside. And especially in Reynoldstown.

Just south of Little Five Points, the corner in question is the northwest quadrant of where busy Moreland Avenue meets Boulevard Drive and Hosea Williams Boulevard, an area that’s been flush with modern-style townhome and single-family home construction for more than a decade. 

Previously, two 1920s bungalows had stood at that prominent corner; by 2021, when both properties came to market, they’d been shuttered and graffiti-strewn for a couple of years. It was a contrast to One Moreland, a restored commercial building across the street that's now home to Whoopsie’s restaurant (formerly Hodgepodge Coffeehouse), Chi Chi Vegan Taco Shop, Cutters Lounge, and Project: Body ATL.

Where the two quintessentially Atlanta homes stood at 10 and 14 Moreland Avenue, four infill housing units have risen. The southernmost duplex, now painted black, includes two massive top-floor patios overlooking the businesses next door and other points south.

Neither duplex has come to market yet, and specifics including pricing aren’t yet known. The northernmost plot sold in summer 2021 for $350,000 at lot value, records show.

According to previous marketing materials, each “gorgeous” duplex unit will feature high ceilings, rooftop decks, open layouts, and two-car garages. Specific plans for the northernmost lot showed three-bedroom units with 2,300 square feet for $650,000 even—but that pricing was flaunted in early 2021, or eons ago, relatively speaking.

In addition to eats next door, the location counts a strong 89 Walk Score, with a Transit Score (60) and Bike Score (65) both qualifying as good.

Boosting those numbers are the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail roughly three blocks west and the Edgewood Retail District, located a bit closer to the north.
