In case you haven’t heard the news, we’re bringing three brand new communities to Atlanta in some of Intown’s most well-known neighborhoods. Well-situated in West Midtown, Reynoldstown and Chosewood Park, you can enjoy the very best of what the city has to offer with a home at Longreen, Stein Steel or Zephyr.


To get a feel for whether or not one of our newest communities is right for you, we encourage you to get out and explore the many hot spots that are steps away from your potential home. Whether it’s by grabbing a coffee at one of the neighborhood’s local shops, attending a yoga class in the area, or going on a walk with your dog, you’ll be able to get a sense of what the community has to offer before even purchasing a home. Here’s what’s within 5 miles of our three new communities in Atlanta.

The Works: Fox Bros Bar-B-Que

This twin-brother duo opened The Works: Fox Bros Bar-B-Que to replicate the southern flavors they grew up with. Their restaurant now serves up smoked brisket, pulled pork, wings and original side dishes seven days a week.


Bacchanalia has earned a reputation for being Atlanta’s most-celebrated restaurant since it opened in 1993. Not only is it consistently rated one of Atlanta’s top restaurants, but its menu boasts organic ingredients that are sourced from the owners’ farm.

Bone Garden Cantina

If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food that’s made from scratch every day, Bone Garden Cantina won’t disappoint. If not for the food, stop by to appreciate their restaurant interior, decked out in colorful folk art inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead.

JCT. Kitchen Revamp

The beloved JCT Kitchen at Westside Provisions closed down in late 2021, but only to welcome a new restaurant this year. While owner Ford Fry is keeping details hush hush, he says “JCT Kitchen was always a neighborhood restaurant and what is coming will also act in that same vein, but it will be in a fresh new way.”

Forza Storico

Transport yourself to Italy at Forza Storico — a traditional Italian restaurant. Classic Roman dishes like Carbonara, Amatriciana and Cacio e Pepe are what you’ll find on their menu.


A first-rate steakhouse and bar by Ford Fry, Marcel is the place to be when it comes to celebrating special occasions. They have a reputation in Atlanta for being where you can find the best steaks that money can buy.

The Works

Located in the upper westside of Atlanta is The Works — an 80-acre mixed-use development that’s loved by locals. Shop to your heart’s content, dine until your belly is full, and enjoy live entertainment and events.

Westside Provisions

Westside Provisions is where you’ll find some of the finest furnishings in Atlanta and fashion pieces too. The grounds are also home to a plethora of restaurants that are celebrated across the city.

The Interlock

Another favorite mixed-use development among Atlanteans is The Interlock — where you get the best of boutique stores, office spaces and residences, and mouth-watering restaurants.

Westside Paper: Opening Soon

Westside Paper is opening soon and Atlanta natives are eagerly awaiting its launch date. The grounds boast 21,400 sq.ft. of entertainment, restaurant and retail space, and that doesn’t even cover the half of it.

Westside Reservoir Park

The new $44 million Westside Park is home to Atlanta’s largest greenspace, spanning 280 acres. Take a visit to relish panoramic views of the reservoir and the Atlanta skyline.

Proctor Creek Greenway

Travel from the Bankhead MARTA station to Grove Park West Highlands neighborhood via the Proctor Creek Greenway. It’s perfect for those who enjoy spending time outdoors.

Con Leche

Con Leche Coffee is a cafe located in Reynoldstown — right next to Stein Steel. It’s perfect for residents who need a quick morning pick-me-up or a toast to go.


Muchacho is the neighborhood go-to for all things tacos, grain bowls and cocktails. But the atmosphere is the cherry on top of the ice cream, boasting an outdoor terrace that patrons can use.

Revolution Doughnuts

Think about your favorite American treat but all natural, trans-fat free and made by people instead of machines. At Revolution Doughtnuts, you get all that and more. Their tasty sweets are made with real ingredients including premium chocolate, organic flour and seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Nina & Rafi

This Italian eatery has a rustic vibe that patrons can’t seem to get enough of. Enjoy their specialty pizzas for brunch, or grab a drink at their bar that has an extensive Amaro collection.


Parkgrounds is a neighborhood cafe which future Stein Steel residents will be happy to know is located right next to the community. Get your morning caffeine boost in here, enjoy breakfast until 2:00 p.m. and belly up on sandwiches all day.

Home Grown

Who else offers tasty breakfast options in the area? That would be none other than Home Grown — a neighborhood hotspot that uses locally grown produce. Their menu offerings are well-priced too.

Wonder Kid

A retro-style diner and lounge, Wonder Kid is unlike any other restaurant in Reynoldstown. Take a trip down memory lane or flash back to an older time when red leather seats and stainless steel tables were the norm.

Paved BeltLine

When you call Stein Steel home, you’re choosing to live along the paved east-side BeltLine. What does this mean, you ask? Only that the best of Atlanta’s restaurants, entertainment venues and shops are moments from home.

Stumpery Garden

The Stumpery is a whimsical garden space that’s located on the Eastside Trail — one of the largest of its kind spanning 12,000 sq.ft. It’s home to over 100 pieces of trunks and tree stumps.

Cabbagetown Park

Once the grounds of an elementary school that closed down in 1976, Cabbagetown Park is now well-known for its abundance of green space and its annual Chomp and Stomp Bluegrass Festival — a competition of local chilis.

The Eastern

Where do Reynoldstown residents watch their favorite artists perform? At The Eastern, of course. Check out who’s performing at this live music venue in the coming months.

Atlanta Dairies

Atlanta Dairies is made up of specialty shops, restaurants and entertainment venues connected by greenspace. It’s a gathering place for those who want to have a meal, enjoy drinks or partake in games outdoors, and discover the talents of local artists each week.


Get from A to B with ease thanks to MARTA — the principal transport operator in the Atlanta metro area which operates a network of bus routes. Did we mention it’s walkable from Stein Steel?

Carroll Street Cafe

Whether you’re in the mood for food, coffee or cocktails, Carroll Street Cafe is the neighborhood go-to. They have a bar, an eclectic wine collection and new specials daily.

Three Taverns Brewery

Tour the Three Taverns Brewery or sample their menu of Belgian-style beers in their on-site tasting room.

Eventide Brewing

What started out as an experiment with homemade pickles, mustard, cheese and beer has turned into one of Atlanta’s most popular breweries. P.S. you can bring your pets or kids along too.

Red’s Beer Garden

Just steps from the Southside BeltLine is Red’s Beer Garden which boasts self-serve refrigerators with more than 300 beverages. Choose from wine, ciders or hard seltzers, and enjoy a hot dog, pulled pork sandwich or tots.

Little Bear

A small neighborhood restaurant in Summerhill, Little Bear is all about sourcing hyper-local ingredients, small production wine, craft cocktails and more. Fun fact: Little Bear is named after the restaurant owner’s dog who is also the restaurant’s furry “proprietor.”

Bennett’s Market & Deli

From breakfast foods to soups and salads, sandwiches, prepared foods and gluten-free alternatives too, Bennett’s Market & Deli has something on their menu for everyone.


If you couldn’t tell from its name, Mediterranea’s menu revolves around the Mediterranean diet. They cook with vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, olive oil, beans and legumes in addition to seafood and poultry.

The Beacon

Once an industrial area, The Beacon is now home to nine acres of walkable areas. Here you’ll find a slew of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, daycares and healthcare facilities.

Non-Paved Beltline

The Atlanta BeltLine’s unpaved trails are the perfect way to immerse yourself in nature, without ever leaving the city. You can walk, bike and explore the best of Atlanta’s destinations right next to home.

Grant Park

A 131-acre green space and recreational area, Grant Park is the fourth-largest park in the city behind Chastain Park, Freedom Park and Piedmont Park.

Chosewood Park

Tennis courts, basketball courts, a children’s playground and baseball field — oh my! There’s a number of activities you can partake in at Chosewood Park so that no moment bores.

Future BeltLine Park

Located just across the street from Empire Zephyr is the BeltLine Park which will be constructed in the near future. It’s the perfect place for local residents to get their morning meditation session in or practice some yoga.
