Formerly woodsy or post-industrial barren, the stretch of the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail between Edgewood Avenue and Irwin Street could now be described as a canyon of housing, offices, and retail options, with more to come.
Adding most noticeably to a sense of new investment in all directions is the 678 Edgewood project, which has topped out alongside its namesake bridge with frontage along the popular trail.
Dillon Baynes, Columbia Ventures’ managing partner, tells Urbanize Atlanta the seven-story apartment project completed vertical construction about a month ago and is on track to open in the second quarter of next year. It broke ground in fall 2021 and, upon last check in July, was just starting to come out of the ground.
The $37-million Studioplex project is claiming one of the last remaining open parcels for large-scale development on the Eastside Trail. Its ground-floor plans call for continuing a row of retail facing the BeltLine that includes Shake Shack, Pour Taproom, Guac y Margys,and Nina and Rafi pizza, among other establishments.
