New Apartments on East Andrews Drive Bring Luxury, Hubris To Former The Paces Site

Say goodbye to old and cheap(er), and hello to new and luxurious in Buckhead’s West Village. BuckheadView has the latest scoop on the design of the future luxury apartments that will take the place of the old Paces complex on East Andrews Drive, which is set to be demolished within days. Needless to say, it’ll be a complete turnaround from the asbestos-laden, but affordable, apartment buildings that have occupied the site since 1967. Phase I calls for development of the interior of the 30 acre site with two apartment buildings housing 367 units, one more high end than the other, as well as a helping of three to four story townhomes. The developer’s goal is to preserve as many trees as possible, while the buildings themselves will be inspired by the classical stylings of the venerable Neel Reid. Don’t expect the place to become the new Melrose Place; according to the developer, the targeted demographic is the upscale empty nester that doesn’t want the downsides of owning a large house. Unofficial Mayor of Buckhead Sam Massell is even quoted as saying that Midtown could lose some population due to the desirability of the new accomodations. Yeah, he went there.
