The first residents will soon move into a new apartment complex with direct pedestrian access to the popular Westside Provisions District.

Broadstone Yards, made up of three mid-rise buildings with 251 studio, one- and two-bedroom units, is located at 1084 Howell Mill Road in West Midtown. Amenities include co-working spaces, a rooftop lounge and a fitness center with a Peloton bike, battle ropes, climbing rope and peg boards.

The property has a heavy emphasis on art, with a number of large-scale murals displayed throughout. A six-story abstract mural by Atlanta muralist Michael Jones towers over a saltwater pool.
