Key Investment Considerations

  • Newly constructed urban, infill Class “A” six-story mid-rise apartment community located in Glenwood Park, a redeveloped, urbanist community approximately 2 miles east of downtown;
  • Adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine extension, a 22-mile developing multi-use trail, and adding more convenient walkability options and commanding significant rent premiums;
  • Centered in a walkable, authentic area with numerous recently completedtrans formative, mixed-use developments such as Ponce City Market, Inman Park Village, and Krog Street Market;
  • Bluerock has built in value creation due to the $1 million purchase price to appraised value comparison. There is also additional upside potential with the continued evolution of the neighborhood into a village concept including new major redevelopments such as the Atlanta Dairies, Beacon Atlanta, the Atlanta Stockade, and Larkin on Memorial;*
  • 51% rent growth in East Atlanta in the past 5 years, a testament to submarket desirability1; and
  • Access to award winning restaurants and trendy nightlife in the city’s most prominent retail district1.

Local Overview

East Atlanta is undergoing a transformation of infill redevelopment highlighted by several projects built around the continuing evolution of the Beltline. Completed projects include:

GLENWOOD PARK: a mixed-use neighborhood designed around the principles of New Urbanism near the BeltLine.

INMAN PARK/QUARTER: a highly desirable infill neighborhood along the BeltLine with luxury apartments as well as other housing types.

THE JANE, GRANT PARK: a recently completed mixeduse re-development in historic Grant Park with a mix of restaurants, pubs, bakeries, and coffeeshops.

KROG STREET MARKET: a re-developed 1920s warehousealong the BeltLine, where vendors sell produce, goods, andprepared foods.

PONCE CITY MARKET: a full renovation of the old Sears and Roebuck building is presently a marketplace of artisan chefs with a high-end retail, office, and residential component located along the BeltLine. 

The Atlanta BeltLine is the most comprehensive transportation and economic development effort ever undertaken in the City 
of Atlanta and among the largest, most wide-ranging urban redevelopment programs currently underway in the United States. The Atlanta BeltLine is a sustainable re-development project that is transforming the city. It will ultimately connect 45 intown neighborhoods via a 22-mile loop of multi-use trails, modern streetcars, and parks – all based on railroad corridors that formerly encircled Atlanta. When completed, it will provide first and last mile connectivity for regional transportation initiatives and put Atlanta on a path to 21st century economic growth and sustainability.


The “Millennial Generation”, at more than 86 million and already exceeding that of the “Baby Boomers” at similar ages, is expected to increase over the next 20 years as immigration (typically of young adults) continues to increase. Although they are only now beginning to live on their own, “Millennials” will likely form even more households than the “Gen-Xers” and even the “Baby Boomers”. In fact, according to a recent study by the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), the nation is projected to add 4.6 million new renter households by 2030.
