The garden-style community features 320 apartment homes near the Chattahoochee River and Sweetwater Creek State Park offering an unmatched destination lifestyle, and easy access to neighborhood schools, employers and prime transportation routes. Phase II of the community will deliver in September 2023 and includes an additional 105 apartment homes including 25 townhomes.
Emblem communities were created by Quarterra to help address the nationwide shortage of attainable housing available to middle-income renters – making Emblem Riverside’s central location within Atlanta’s top logistics and ecommerce corridor, and immediate connectivity to major job centers throughout Atlanta providing access to over 525,000 workers, is even more vital.
“Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing housing markets in the country, and Emblem Riverside puts residents within easy reach of the city while offering the intimate feel and lifestyle of a suburban community,” said Ray Crocker, Senior Vice President of Development with Quarterra. “The community features the top-flight amenities package and a modern living experience that has become the trademark of the Emblem brand. We’re excited to bring this opportunity to Douglasville, and further enhance an already thriving community.”
Emblem Riverside residents will find convenient retailers and well-known restaurant options located along Thornton Road, with unique dining establishments and boutique shops a short distance away in Downtown Douglasville. Recreational opportunities abound, with Tributary Tennis Center, Chattahoochee River and Sweetwater Creek State Park, with its historic ruins, hiking trails, and camping, boating and fishing at 215-acre George Sparks Reservoir.
Situated at 1551 Riverside Highway, Emblem Riverside affords easy connectivity to Interstates 20 (east-west) and 285 (north-south), as well as local thoroughfares like Fulton Industrial Blvd. and Riverside. The Douglas Connect bus route runs along Riverside Parkway, providing connections to the Marta bus line and the greater Atlanta Metro Area, including neighboring Mableton, Villa Rica and South Fulton.
