In the blocks surrounding Georgia State University’s Center Parc Stadium, roughly 1,200 apartments and townhomes have opened—or are under construction now—since the Braves decamped for Cobb County five years ago.
On Fraser Street, about a block from stadium entries, a smaller infill project expects to join the officially “delivered” mix soon, adding six townhomes to Summerhill’s increasingly dense housing stock.
Called The Towns on Fraser, the project was designed by TSW architects and is being built by Cablik Enterprises. It’s managed to fit the half-dozen units onto a sloping, .19-acre site in the shadow of Georgia State’s football stadium, the Braves’ former Turner Field.
The project is finishing construction roughly two blocks from Georgia Avenue, where a flurry of restaurants and retail has been established as part of Carter’s 80-acre redevelopment of the previously moribund commercial district.
Prices of units listed so far range from $489,900 to $509,900, with a contract pending on one of them.
All six townhomes stand four stories, including roof decks spanning the length of buildings, with two bedrooms, two and ½ bathrooms, and one-car garages.
The project is marketed as being thoughtfully designed with oversized windows for natural light, chef’s kitchens, walk-in pantries, and owner’s bedrooms with spa-inspired bathrooms. Carl Mattison Design is handling interior finishes.
When the project was initially floated, plans called for smaller townhomes to start in the $300,000s. As with other boutique projects around the city, however, spikes in labor and material costs, coupled with Atlanta’s heating market, prompted significant price adjustments.
In nearby blocks, ongoing projects include the next phase of 100 townhomes by Hedgewood Homes, part of Carter's broader Summerhill development; a 30-townhome project by Empire Communities called Lovetree; and a 325-unit apartment complex that recently began leasing, Alexan Summerhill, by Trammel Crow Residential.
The Towns on Fraser project is on track to open later this summer, according to listings. Have a closer look in the gallery above.
