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.
