Pre-leasing of three apartment communities within The Battery Atlanta project will start in December, with units opening in March, just weeks before the opening of the Braves new Cobb County ballpark, the development team said Wednesday.
Apartment giant Pollack Shores said communities within the combined Home at the Battery Atlanta — The Residences, The Flats and Parkside — will each feature unique fixtures and amenities in one- and two-bedroom floor plans.
The Residences will be an 81-unit community set atop the Battery’s terrace featuring a rooftop bar and launch and wraparound balcony overlooking SunTrust Park.
Parkside, a 211-unit development closest to the stadium, will feature a premium clubhouse.
The Flats, the largest of the three communities with 239 units, will be centered in the main shopping district and include an entertainment center with a bar, billiards and cyber café.
“We’ve created this unique opportunity to not only tailgate from your patio, but also enjoy other qualities residents look for like walking and biking trails and easy access to major highways,” Steven Shores, president and co-founder of Pollack Shores, said in a news release. “It’s a truly unique residential mix with something for everyone.”
Monthly rents have not been released.
The Braves have announced a number of retail and restaurant tenants in recent months, including a Mizuno experience center showroom and a Wahlburgers restaurant by chef Paul Wahlberg and his actor brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg.
Other tenants include: a Professional Bull Riders Association Bar & Grill, Dress Up, Kings Bowl, Mountain High Outfitters, Harley-Davidson apparel store, the Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre concert venue, Antico Pizza and Tomahawk Taproom featuring Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q.
An Omni hotel and an office tower for Comcast housing about 1,000 tech workers are slated to open next year. The Braves plan to open the ballpark and the bulk of The Battery’s first phase in time for Opening Day.
