Another wave — nay, a tsunami! — of apartments is washing through the approval process in Buckhead. In what could be the largest dose of rentals in the multifamily boom, AMLI Residential is moving forward with two neighboring projects that could bring roughly 650 apartments to a site at Roxboro and East Paces Ferry roads, near Lenox Square. (Shoppers, rejoice!) Prior to the Recession, this big pulsating swath of opportunity was slated to house a $2 billion condo project by Miami developers, but those plans, like many others, faltered. Now, AMLI's CityPlace "Site A" (as seen above) will offer 400 units (262 of those being one-bedrooms) in a five-story building on 4.5 acres. The company promises the apartments will boast "first-class interior finishes comparable to or exceeding the market, and several amenities including a resort-style swimming pool, clubroom, business center and rooftop deck." The other project (simply called "Site D," pictured at right) will bring 180 units in a concrete high-rise, with another 60 units in a lower structure surrounding a parking deck. At a recent meeting, a Buckhead Development Review Committee stressed the project should most definitely connect with the PATH400 trail via an on-street link with East Paces Ferry Road. Good call, y'all.
