An Atlanta-based real estate company is building a multifamily apartment complex in an area of the city that will sit near the future southeast portion of the Atlanta Beltline. The 319-unit apartment complex will range from 500 square foot micro apartments to large two-story, three-bedroom apartments. The apartment complex is one of the company’s first to be constructed in an Opportunity Zone, an area consisting of economically disadvantaged communities, according to the release. The zones were created to strengthen distressed neighborhoods through economic development and job creation. Skylark is one of two developments Pollack Shoals is building in a defined Opportunity Zone. The other is the Merchant apartment complex in Charleston, South Carolina.
