“Seasoned developers will tell you Atlanta has been known for decades as something of an anomaly in the business world, in that top executives are often friendly competitors—if not actual friends—who collaborate on larger issues.

Now, it sounds like two of the city’s most powerful business captains could work collaboratively to see one of Atlanta’s urban low-points—The Gulch—take flight.”

The Beltline has brought with it massive changes in the Old Fourth Ward, with Ponce City Market, Historic Fourth Ward Park, the 725 Ponce Development, and the redevelopment of the Masquerade site all within a few blocks.

And now, the future of one of the largest tracts of land still undeveloped in the area is becoming a little clearer.

SNEAK PEEK – DAR House. If you’ve been wondering what will fill in the space of the now vacant DAR House location across from the Piedmont Driving Club, here is a sneak peek. Three ultra luxury townhomes designed by TaC Studios and developed by PacificPoint Realty will fill the void and feature luxury finishes not seen in Atlanta before. Homes will also feature rooftop decks with views of Piedmont Park and the Midtown skyline. Pricing will start around $1.6 million. Contact me if you want to be added to the VIP list.

Per Curbed Atlanta, a new hotel is set to rise on the site of old Georgia Dome.

“According to the GWCC website, a new four-star hotel could bring between 800 and 1,000 rooms to the southern end of the convention center, near Northside Drive. That would rank the new lodge between the fifth largest hotel in Atlanta (Omni Atlanta Hotel; 1,038 rooms) and the current sixth (Sheraton Atlanta Hotel; 749 rooms).

As shown, the glassy concept would fill the northern portion of the Georgia Dome’s current site, leaving plenty of space for the “Home Depot Backyard”—a park-parking lot hybrid announced earlier this year.”

I am proud to announce Minerva’s latest development, Hutchinson Street. Hutchinson Street is a quaint community of 4 townhomes located in the heart of Edgewood and mere steps from the new “Spoke” MARTA mixed-used development by Columbia Ventures, http://columbiaven.com/projects/spoke/ and only blocks away from the many exciting mixed-used developments underway on the Memorial Drive Corridor.

Hutchinson Street is comprised of two 2-story duplex townhomes each with 4 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms ranging in size from 2694 to 2953 square feet + unfinished basements. Homes feature 2-car garages, Gourmet Kitchens with Bosch stainless steel appliance package including stacked single oven & convection microwave combo, 5-burner gas cooktop w/ sleek vent hood, 42-inch upper cabinetry w/shaker crown, dovetail drawers, soft-close doors & drawers, under cabinet accent lighting, quartz countertops, and large island & zero-edge stainless steel 30” single-bowl sink. Comfortable oversized Owner Suites feature trey ceilings, can lighting, enormous walk-in closets, soaking tub, frameless glass enclosed showers with wall tiled to the ceiling, raised double vanities with rectangular undermount sinks, quartz countertops, soft-close doors & drawers, & framed mirrors. Well appointed Great Rooms with 10’ ceilings, 5-inch hardwood floors, 36-inch direct-vent gas fireplace with custom surround options, & flat panel TV prep.

Hutchinson Street’s floor plans, design, and architecture are reminiscent of Minerva’s Old 4th Ward development, East Avenue Cottages, http://allensnowrealty.com/property/east-avenue-cottages/. Priced well from the high-$500s to mid-$600s, Hutchinson Street will sell fast like Minerva’s nearby project The Whitefoord, http://allensnowrealty.com/property/the-whitefoord/. Call, email, or text me to schedule a personal hard hat tour.

Two high-rises could soon swallow an entire Midtown block.
