An Atlanta-based developer is kicking off construction on new apartments next to the Blue Line light rail extension, in the Optimist Park neighborhood near NoDa.

Wood Partners has closed on its acquisition of a 2.3-acre site, paying more than $5.3 million for land at 25th and Brevard streets. That’s next to the 25th Street light rail station, set to start passenger service by March 2018. The site is currently used as a truck yard.

The company is building a 261-unit apartment building, which has yet to be named. Wood Partners expects to complete the apartments by early 2019. Amenities will include a saltwater pool, lounge, game room and public kitchen area for residents.
