East of downtown Atlanta, a new residential building called Signal House will provide the city with 162 units ranging from one to three bedrooms. Located on the Atlanta BeltLine, a former railway corridor, the 21-story building is part of the latest phase of Ponce City Market, a onetime Sears building and now a mixed-use complex. (View floor plans.)

Jamestown, a real estate investment and management firm, recently announced that pre-leasing is currently underway for Signal House, which is expected to be move-in ready this fall.

Signal House’s residences feature light-filled interiors, bedrooms with lounging space, efficient kitchens, and balconies with views of Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward. The building offers a smartphone app that residents can use for paying rent and for the following: 

  • Keyless entry
  • Thermostat control
  • Scheduling personal care appointments and group fitness sessions
  • Arranging a car share or ride share
  • Booking services such as maintenance, housekeeping, plant watering, dry cleaning, dog walking, and personal assistance. 
  • A community coordinator plans onsite events, classes, and gatherings, all of which are bookable via the app.

Building amenities include a pool terrace with a shaded lounge and outdoor shower, a multipurpose fitness room with a connected outdoor fitness space for group classes and private instruction, wellness rooms for personal treatments such as massages, a clubhouse lounge, and a dining room with a commercial kitchen and connected outdoor seating. 

Signal House’s common spaces also include a rooftop terrace with outdoor grilling, dining, and lounging spaces, and community garden plots.

In addition to direct access to the BeltLine, the building provides bicycle storage, a pet washroom with grooming tubs, tenant storage spaces, secure mail and package rooms, and a flex workspace with conferencing and presentation capabilities. Signal House has 3,300 sf of BeltLine-fronting retail space.

Signal House is targeting LEED certification and Fitwel Certification.
