Edge of Tomorrow
The BeltLine’s latest development offers access to both sides of the Eastside Trail
STORIES: Claire Ruhlin
It’s no secret that developments are cropping up by the BeltLine faster than Atlantans can keep up. This surge in retail, entertainment and apartment concepts includes the likes of The Residences at Studioplex, Common Ground’s Bazati development and 725 Ponce at the site of the former Kroger on Ponce. The latest concept is Edge, a mixed-use development with access to both sides of the Eastside Trail, thanks to a pedestrian bridge over the BeltLine that links its east and west buildings. Sited between Edgewood and DeKalb avenues, Edge also offers access to two of Atlanta’s trendiest neighborhoods, Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward.
The project will feature 350 residential units as well as loft office spaces and restaurant and retail components. Already onboard are Shake Shack, Hazel Jane’s Wine & Coffee (a wine bar concept from Revelator Coffee) and chef Kevin Gillespie’s Cold Beer, a restaurant and bar similar to Gunshow, featuring shareable dishes and communal dining.
