A step forward for Enota Park expansion

Here at Red Robin, we’ve been eagerly watching as the market develops along the Beltline’s Westside Trail.  This is a super hot area for investors, and savvy buyers are taking notice of the charming and reasonably priced (at least for a little longer) homes.

Westview has long been on the radar as a neighborhood to watch — cute historic homes, nestled along the Beltline and Westview Cemetery.  Now, we are one step closer to adding an expanded Enota Park to the mix, which will certainly be a highlight of the neighborhood.

In December 2010, the Atlanta City Council approved the Master Plan for Enota Park.  Last week, Atlanta Beltline Inc called for firms to submit design plans for the park expansion.  (Proposals are due by October 30).  Currently, the park is 1/3 acre, but the expansion will include more than 8 acres.  Ideas for the park include an event lawn, splash pad, walking trails and a public entrance to the Beltline Westside Trail.

The park will be bordered by I-20, the Beltline Westside Trail, Lucille Ave and Enota Place.  View the Master Plan.

Opposite the park, just across the Westside Trail, along Langhorn Street is a plan for 3 multi-family residential develoments.  It will be interesting to see if these residential units include Affordable (Workforce) Housing — something that has been quite the controversy with developments along the Beltline.

If you are thinking of buying a home that’s a great investment (whether you plan to live there, or rent it out), let us take you on a tour of the west side. Great neighborhoods and upcoming developments are going to put this area of Atlanta on the map!  Contact Us for more info.

When Melissa Wakamo began her real estate career in 2004, her goal was to focus on her immediate area and get to know her neighbors. "I've had a lot of fun over the years helping my neighbors sell their homes and helping newcomers become a part of our community."

Melissa quickly became one of metro Atlanta's top producing agents and consistently performed in the top 1% of all Atlanta agents. By 2009, Melissa's real estate team had grown to include several agents and support staff, dedicated to providing exceptional service to buyers and sellers in Atlanta's intown neighborhoods.

In 2010, Melissa transitioned Red Robin REALTORS® into an independently owned boutique brokerage. Even in the tough real estate market during that time, Red Robin REALTORS® continued to outperform other small brokerages and was able to help buyers and sellers adapt to the rapid changes in the market.

In 2017, Melissa had the opportunity to merge the Red Robin REALTORS team with another like-minded boutique brokerage, Keller Knapp Realty. The two community-focused organizations bring together more than 100 agents, including 3 of the top 10 agents in metro Atlanta. With offices in Oakhurst, Ormewood Park and Midtown, Keller Knapp Realty and Red Robin REALTORS team are the top boutique real estate firm in Atlanta.

In her role as Managing Broker, Melissa provides agent training, marketing and strategic oversight for the Brokerage, ensuring that the brokerage maintains its focus and commitment to the intown market.

Melissa's active participation in various neighborhood organizations and charitable efforts, as well as her passion for antiques, cooking, and gardening, keep her busy and in touch with the community.
