A relatively large injection of new housing is taking shape within the nebulous boundaries of what’s been labeled Atlanta’s Upper Westside.
Plans call for the Stanley Martin Homes project, Westside Bend at Proctor Creek, to eventually feature 216 townhomes and standalone houses arranged around a park and communal clubhouse on James Jackson Parkway, in northwest Atlanta neighborhood Monroe Heights.
Construction has been underway at the formerly wooded site—situated just north of Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy, and south of Whittier Mill Village—for about three years. It’s positioned next to the winding banks of Proctor Creek but located due west of where the completed, three-mile Proctor Creek Greenway currently ends. (A fourth phase of the trail, totaling $4.5 million, is included on the Moving Atlanta Forward TSPLOST/bond package approved by voters last year.)
Overall, the Westside Bend project is billed as “affordable options in a great area,” with townhome prices starting from the upper-$300,000s—or what similar product in many eastside neighborhoods went for a decade ago.
According to the project’s website, 41 townhomes have sold so far, and all standalone houses will come with future phases. Listings indicate the first closings at Westside Bend at Proctor Creek are expected in March.
Those high-$300,000s price points, however, appear to be either unlisted or totally claimed now.
Current listing prices between $430,200 and $450,200 buy three-bedroom, three and ½ bathroom townhomes with 1,964 square feet. Called The Quinn, each of those three-level floorplans has a two-car garage.
Beyond the central park, communal amenities are expected to include a pool, cabana, fire pit, and pocket-park greenspaces. The first offering of townhomes features quartz countertops, living-room fireplaces, lower-level flex spaces, and half-covered decks off the main living levels.
The location is promoted as being convenient to everything from four interstates and Truist Park to the new Westside Park and, uh, Piedmont Park.
