Residential project dubbed ‘Camino’ is officially a go

An infill project that will add hundreds of new housing options to Doraville is about to rev up.

Atlanta-based developer RangeWater Real Estate announced today it plans to break ground Sept. 20 on a residential venture dubbed “Camino” at a vacant parcel off Buford Highway, just inside the Interstate 285 Perimeter.

RangeWater recently closed on 7.5 acres at 3712 Stewart Road to move development forward, marking the company’s 26th project in Georgia and first in Doraville.

Plans for Camino call for a mix of 304 apartments and townhomes, all for rent. Options will range from “micro” studios of just 474 square feet to three-bedroom apartments and townhomes with more than 1,400 square feet.

The Camino site is within walking distance of Doraville’s City Hall and the sprawling new Assembly Atlanta, a TV and film-anchored project with a planned residential component that was pushed back indefinitely early this year.  

RangeWater has agreed to install a new section of the Peachtree Creek Greenway trail as part of Camino’s construction. That will serve as the community’s Stewart Road “front door” and help boost trail connectivity to City Hall and Doraville’s MARTA station, according to a project announcement today.

Amenities at Camino are expected to include a centralized pool courtyard, podcast studio, rooftop lounge, private speakeasy, a dog park, and coworking offices. Units will include quartz countertops, what’s described as “luxury vinyl tile flooring,” stainless steel appliances, and smart home technology, per RangeWater.

Elsewhere in metro Atlanta, RangeWater recently opened an apartment project with a small retail component called The Vivian along the BeltLine’s Southside Trail.  

“Atlanta continues to be a target market for our team to develop, acquire, manage, and build,” Steven Shores, RangeWater chairman and CEO, said in a prepared statement. “Doraville stands out as one of the city’s most culturally significant neighborhoods.”  

RangeWater’s in-house construction company expects to deliver Camino in spring 2025.

Elsewhere in Doraville, a $116-million, mixed-use project called Lotus Grove is also taking shape along the Buford Drive corridor. It’s replacing a former Kmart that was shuttered on the 13-acre property more than a decade ago.
