In this new installment of Curbed Comparisons, we’re examining two closely matched in-town townhouses situated within a few streets of one another.

Both are recent properties, with one brand new to the area, which means they both contain plenty of up-to-date features and decor. That translates into clean, contemporary lines, modern light fixtures, and technological amenities.

Following the mid-March announcement that the city and Atlanta Beltline have bought the four-mile, crescent-shaped Southside Trail corridor from longtime owner CSX, it seemed imperative to explore the route (with guided permission) before work launches to rip out the inactive railroad tracks.

For the uninitiated, this fascinating, 63-acre tapestry of landscapes impresses.

“Slated to include 250,000 square feet of office space and 330 residential units, the project would mean big changes for a long-abandoned lot. But with no lead tenant for the office tower, the project seemed unlikely to begin construction soon.

Turns out that’s not the case.

According to multiple sources, developer Greenstone Properties intends to build the two-pronged project without a lead tenant. The group filed plans with a special administrative permit (SAP), indicating the project could move forward in the fall.”

The largest undeveloped piece of land on Atlanta’s eastside is having a moment in the spotlight.

Dotted with nearly a dozen inimitable old structures, Kirkwood’s 27-acre Pratt-Pullman Yard should soon begin its transformation from a blighted, postindustrial filming location into a mixed-use hub with a Hollywood twist.

“Last year, MARTA began construction on an array of new mixed-use developments at stations across their network. Now, several of these transit oriented developments (that’s TODs, for short) are barreling toward completion, illustrating their transformative nature.
