Our series of articles on businesses that lie along the 22-mile loop of the Atlanta BeltLine gets a little twist this month with a company that is building along the corridor.
If you want to live along the BeltLine, Brock Built Homes has just the community for you – West Highlands, a master planned community on the city’s Westside.
The community is adjacent to the future Westside Park, home to the former Bellwood Quarry and a dramatic pit that will become a 1.9-billlion-gallon drinking water reservoir for the City of Atlanta.
Westside Park will eclipse Piedmont Park in size with 300 acres of greenspace, multi-use trails and recreation areas along with the future transit system that will connect the BeltLine communities.
The West Highlands community also has parks, playgrounds, wide sidewalks, small lakes and an extensive network of walking trails that will connect to the existing PATH system.
Homes in West Highlands are Craftsman style home with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms starting in the high $100’s.  “West Highlands is a rare community in that it offers all the excitement of city living and the conveniences of a small town,” said Brock Built’s Tessa Jones.
Jones said that Brock Built Homes founder and CEO Steve Brock “has an extraordinary vision of what a city neighborhood can be.”
“He saw something no one else saw and took a risk when few were willing to do so,” Jones said. “He purchased land with the future in mind, so all development plans in the area that increase visibility and expose the area are a very exciting step forward in fulfilling the Brock Built vision.”
Jones said the Beltline project is important to Brock Built as it is helping to develop the areas around our communities and make them more enjoyable places for people to live, work and play.
Brock brings over 25 years of homebuilding experience to the marketplace, having built more than 1,000 homes all with a vision toward tree lined streets, neighborhood parks, sidewalks and relaxing green spaces.
“Our goal is to enrich the lives we touch by helping our buyers achieve their dreams through home ownership,” Brock said.
Brock Built has won numerous awards for its work around the city including the 2008 Homebuilder of the Year presented by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association for professionalism and excellence in home building and 2009 Earth Craft Builder of the Year.
Steve Brock served as president of the DeKalb Chapter of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and chair of the DeKalb Developers Council. He is a builder director of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association Board of Directors.
