Here and there, examples of for-sale condominium products have popped up across Atlanta in recent years, ranging from ritzy (Graydon Buckhead) and glassy (Seven88 West Midtown) high-rises, to BeltLine-adjacent boutiques (The Roycraft) and throwback mid-rises (Kirkwood’s Pullman Flats).
But still, new condos remain a relatively rare bird.
A project spanning three city blocks and five and ½ previously vacant acres in West Midtown’s historic Blandtown neighborhood is helping to change that, introducing condos in a section of Atlanta where new housing is more dominated by townhomes and single-family builds.
In recent weeks, stacked condo options at Empire Communities’ Longreen project have started coming to market en masse.
Project officials tell Urbanize Atlanta options include both one and two-story units, with between one and three bedrooms and prices from the low $300,000s to $600,000s.
The newest options include rooftop terraces and views of the changing skyline near Howell Mill Road, according to Empire officials.
The least expensive option—priced at $319,115 for 640 square feet—is under contract, along with a handful of other Longreen condos.
The largest Longreen floorplan, the Executive, includes three bedrooms and two and 1/2 bathrooms across two stories. Listing services peg square footages for these units around 1,850.
The project’s name is a nod to a .4-acre public greenspace along Booth Avenue that’s part of the development. It’s situated less than a block from the Northwest Trail route the BeltLine picked last year to snake through the area.
As with Empire’s Stein Steel project in Reynoldstown, Longreen has incorporated condos alongside townhomes, which were priced from the low $500,000s. We’re told that all townhomes in Longreen’s first phase have sold out.
Once finished, Longreen will include 179 condos and townhomes in the 900 block of Huff Road, where a recent Atlanta Regional Commission grant has lent hope that multimodal roadway improvements could come, allowing alternate means of travel on a corridor increasingly known for traffic congestion.
The Longreen breakdown will be 152 condos and 27 townhomes, ranging from the 600-square-foot one-bedrooms to more standard three-bedroom plans of about 1,800 square feet. Empire closed on the property in late 2020 and broke ground the following year.
