276-Unit Property in Historic Fourth Ward Offers Gigabit Internet
By Balazs Szekely, Associate Editor
Developed by North American Properties, BOHO4W, as the project is called, is the first residential property in Atlanta to embrace the lightning-speed gigabit technology. The 276-unit community at Historic Fourth Ward Park is a so-called fiber-to-the-home or FTTH multifamily project that beside its innovative network, also keeps walkability in focus.
NAP is a privately-held, multi-regional real estate operating company that has acquired, developed and managed more than $4.5 billion worth of multifamily, mixed-use, retail and office properties across the United States. Its multifamily portfolio includes in excess of 15,000 apartment units in 13 states and it currently has $700 million of development underway.
The ultra-high-speed broadband connectivity is the same technology Google Fiber is considering bringing to Atlanta, and it allows for transfer speeds about 100 times faster compared to conventional data services. The necessary fiber optic network and all collateral services are provided by Hotwire Communications.
Also, NAP calls its newest urban neighborhood walkable for a reason. With a Walk Score of 79, BOHO4W is in the sixth most walkable neighborhood in Atlanta. It is steps away from Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, just a short walk from Ponce City Market and just across Ponce de Leon Avenue from Whole Foods Market.
Community amenities include a resort-style salt-water swimming pool overlooking Historic Fourth Ward Park, a clubroom overlooking the pool deck, a fitness center, a fully equipped spin/yoga room with complimentary classes, an outdoor lounge with grilling and dining area, a pet spa with washing and drying stations, a resident art studio with complimentary art classes, a conference room with computers and printers and a cyber café – with gigabit internet of course.
