The Residence Buckhead Atlanta begins pre-leasing apartments for fall occupancy
The Residence Buckhead Atlanta officially opened its leasing office today for the twin 20-story towers of a total 370 luxury apartment homes that are part of OliverMcMillan’s eight-acre, six-block Buckhead Atlanta development in the Village area of Buckhead. Doyle Gorman, community manager for the residential development, and Tommy Ku, property management liaison, are presently beginning pre-leasing for the studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments from the temporary leasing office at 265 Buckhead Avenue. Although pre-leasing has begun for units on the eighth through 13th floors of the North Tower, the first units will not be ready for occupancy until September and the eighth-floor amenities deck between the two towers will not be completed until October, according to Rocell Viniard, regional marketing director for OliverMcMillan. The residences feature open floor plans with views of Buckhead, floor-to-ceiling windows to provide a lot of natural light, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops, a washer and dryer in each home and terraces for indoor/outdoor entertaining, according to Viniard. Each of the units will have wide-plank wood flooring, except in the bedroom areas and some of the two-bedroom and three-bedroom units have two balcony terraces. There will be two-bedroom and three-bedroom penthouse units available, but those will not be ready for September occupancy. The Studio apartments, which range from 692 square feet to 703 square feet, start at $1,579 per month. One-bedroom apartments, which range in size from 707 to 985 square feet, range in price from $1,683 to $2,966 per month. The two-bedroom apartments come with either two bathrooms of two and half baths and range in size from 1,212 square feet starting at $2,625. There are a limited number of three-bedroom units, with two or three baths that range in size from 1,835 to just under 2,000 square feet. The two Penthouse levels will have a total of six three-bedroom/three bath units, six two-bedroom two bath units and four two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath units, split evenly between the two towers. There is a full online brochure available at www.TheResidenceBuckhead.com that includes floor plans for many of the units, although there are some 40 slight variations to the basic plans. It also describes many of the amenities. For additional information, the leasing staff are available for phone calls at 404-917-2525, the number for the leasing office at 265 Buckhead Avenue. The eight-floor amenities deck will include a heated pool and sun deck, a variety of seating and outdoor entertainment areas with grills and a fireplace and The Mansion community clubhouse, complete with a theater, fitness center, and club room with kitchen. The décor of The Mansion will include ornate white brickwork, wood shutters, a slate roof and copper detailing that set it apart from the residential towers, yet tie the two towers together into a residential community. A full brochure of The Residence Buckhead Atlanta, with floor plans for the various units, can be accessed at: www.theresidencebuckhead.com. The phone number for the residential leasing office is 404-917-2525. Viniard pointed out to BuckheadView that the residences are located in the heart of Buckhead and will have a variety of restaurants and first-to-market upscale retail right at their doorstep at Buckhead Atlanta, with gourmet grocery stores and services close by. The secured-access residential community will provide full concierge services 16 hours a day, and that will be supplemented with security service personnel 24-hours a day that can assist residents with concierge services after the concierges have gone off duty, Viniard said. The personalized services that will be provided to residents by the concierges will include arranging dinner reservations or take-in, securing limousines and event tickets, wake-up calls and arranging dry cleaning pick-up and delivery. During the summer months, the plan is to have a pool attendant who will put out towels and help create “a resort spa atmosphere,” said Viniard. Viniard told BuckheadView that, although the residences are being developed with high-end condominium appointments and materials, “there is no intention to turn these into condominium units in the future. OliverMcMillan has a tradition of developing rental properties, not condos,” she added. The two residential towers are located between East Paces Ferry Road and Buckhead Avenue, and stretch along North Fulton Drive. The first eight floors of the two 20-story towers is a 2400-space parking deck that provides secured parking spaces for the residential tenants as well as ungated parking for customers attending the restaurants and retail shops at Buckhead Atlanta.
