Big things are coming to Buckhead! Maybe not so big - but they do have a big price tag.
Buckhead is the leader of all things luxury in Atlanta. The center of business, entertainment, shopping, dining, and living. Home to the affluent streets of West Paces Ferry, Tuxedo Road, Northside Drive, Blackland Road, and more. The appeal of living in a Buckhead zip code draws all ages: college grads, young families, empty nesters...
How long will Buckhead's massive popularity last? With a shift toward a more modern lifestyle, the elite area is facing stiff competition. Midtown continues to grow and develop its high-end urban lifestyle. Intown developments, including One Museum Place and No2 Opus Place, now threaten Buckhead's dominance in luxury living.
To keep up with the times, Buckhead is bringing on big developments. Take a look at The Charles and Emerson, two new construction ultra-luxury condominiums, that will change the perception of Buckhead and its passé reputation.
With 57 units starting at $1.3 million, The Charles is re-imagining the heart of Buckhead. As of this week, The Charles has contracts on 21 units that will not be ready for move-in until 2019. Great things are to be expected from these homes, including quartz countertops, Gaggenau appliances, and private outdoor space. Featuring a full floor of amenities, you will find an infinity pool, yoga studio, and more on the terrace level. Let's not forget - these benefits will cost you $2,532 a month in HOA fees. The mixed-use development will feature 26,000 square feet of retail space below. The walkable location is surrounded by some of Buckhead's best restaurants, bars, and shopping - most notably The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.
Emerson is a true rarity. Pushing architectural boundaries for Atlanta's high rises with its modern aesthetic, Emerson will be a fresh addition to the city's skyline. The 22-story building holds 44 units that begin at $1.8 million. Key features of Emerson's design include exterior glass and expansive terraces. Just a few of the impeccable amenities will be a heated lap pool and tranquil zen garden. The penthouse could be one of the most expensive sales of an unfinished condo building in the city's history at $6 million.
The minimalist way of life continues to encourage downsizing.
Buyers are seeking a smaller space with higher quality details, as opposed to the typical McMansion. This shift means 3 million dollars may be better spent on a 2,000 square foot walkable space rather than a 10,000 square foot traditional estate.
The key to the luxury condo is providing customizable high-end features, concierge service, resort amenities - all while offering the maximum level of privacy for owners.
