Plans call for nearly 200,000 square feet of loft office space in a six-story building, topped by a restaurant with sweeping views of the city. The offices will likely house many startups coming out of Georgia Tech, which owns the land, and the affiliated Georgia Advanced Technology Ventures.

In addition to offices, the development could boast 90,000 square feet of retail, nearly 400 residences, and a 140-room hotel. Bucking the trend of exclusively rental options for residents, the venture has potential for 40 for-sale flats and 18 townhomes.

*cough* It's in Blandtown.
Quote:
Rising along Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard, just south of attractions that include Topgolf Atlanta, Bacchanalia, and Bone Garden Cantina, the project expects to begin delivering this spring, said Pam Ahern, community sales manager with developer ICON Residential, the same group behind Reynolds Square townhomes on Moreland Avenue.

“We have just released Phase II to the public and are almost 50 percent sold between the two phases,” Ahern told Curbed Atlanta recently.

Ultimately, The Chelsea Westside will be served in four or five phases, with completion roughly projected in 2020.

Expect a price range, for now, between the low $400,000s and mid-$700,000s, with nine different floorplans.

At the cheaper end, $419,900 bags a two-bedroom, two-and-1/2-bathroom stack with 1,616 square feet, a full roof deck, and single-car garage

Blandtown is a crappy name, and should be abandoned. Quit fighting the forward progress of change.

Excuse me if I recognize this area existed, has history, and residents before developers pegged it as being cool. If that is your stance, then accept SoNo.

I'm Pro-SoNo. You're confusing me with Aries or somebody.

That is type of thinking that upsets long time residents of neighborhoods, when new residents who refuse or do not recognize the history of the area, come in and try and rebrand it or change it into the image thee newcomers think it should be.

I doubt there are many long-term residents are of this area, if ANY at all:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bl...!4d-84.4251439

There aren't even any houses SFH neighborhoods that I can see. This area was a warehouse district for a long time, industrial wasteland, until the last decade when new apartments and gentrification came. I bet the majority of the residents of Blandtown don't know they live in Blandtown, have never even heard of Blandtown.

What it used to be a long time ago is irrelevant. What it is now is the Westside. (Personally I like Westside better than West Midtown, but I guess they're the same)

These SF homes are really nice, but they are also new:
