It appears prep work has begun on the site destined to become SkyHouse Buckhead. Proposed in August for a lot tucked behind Maggiano's Little Italy at Peachtree and Stratford roads, the 26-story, 364-unit apartment tower would be the SkyHouse line's third in Atlanta. Attempts to confirm recent progress with developer Novare were unsuccessful, but fencing has indeed gone up at the Buckhead site in the last week or so. The tower, not far from the Buckhead MARTA station and adjacent to the pedestrian bridge over Ga. 400, has been pitched as a rental haven for Millenials and Generation Y folks that aren't looking to buy property just yet.
According to BuckheadView's recap of an August meeting, SkyHouse Buckhead would boast one-, two- and three-bedroom units with "high-end finishes and floor-to-ceiling glass." The first floor is a common area; up top, there's a rooftop amenities deck. An open-air terrace and tennis court will crown the parking structure. If SkyHouse South (as in Midtown South) is any kind of indicator, a one-bedroom apartment would be in the neighborhood of 700 square feet and cost residents anywhere from $798 to $1610 in rent. That project is, at least according to its website, currently "pre-leasing for January 2014."
