A five-story apartment community is being built near the Atlanta Eastside Beltline trail, real estate finance advisory firm Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group, announced in a news release.

Atlanta-based developers Urban Realty Partners are behind the Reynoldstown neighborhood project known as 982 Memorial, a 205-unit multifamily development comprised primarily of studio and one-bedroom units, according to the release.

The property will be located on Memorial Drive, two blocks from the Atlanta Beltline extension at Bill Kennedy Way and across from the Publix-anchored Madison Yards retail development, according to the release.

The development is expected to be complete by the first quarter of 2022, Hughes said.
