This week, Greystar officials announced that preleasing has begun at Atlanta's latest Elan community, Elan Lindbergh, and they said the "well-appointed apartment homes" will boast an amenity package "that will distinguish (them) from nearby communities." It's time to put your vote where their mouth is. We've placed Elan Lindbergh vis-à-vis with Broadstone Court, a reasonably similar complex up the road that's coming online at about the same time. After the jump, have a gander at renderings, photography and a rundown of both projects' extensive amenities. And then cast a vote for which almost-finished apartment project would get your deposit right now.
Name: Elan Lindbergh
Status: Construction set to finish in November; preleasing
Locale: 741 Morosgo Drive, just east of the intersection of Piedmont Road and Lindbergh Drive.
Options: Studio, one and two bedrooms.
Dubious aspects: Walkability to The Dump, crazy-busy Best Buy and crazy-strong Wet Willies beverages.
Serious perks: Nearby MARTA and, eventually, PATH400.
Notable amenities: Community clubhouse with a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, billiards room, entertaining kitchen and Wi-Fi lounge.
For fun: A "resort-inspired swimming pool," cabanas, aqua lounge (?), bocce ball court, outdoor kitchen and grilling stations.
Also: Electric car charging stations and a dog park.
Range of rents: From $1,126 for the cheapest studio (576 square feet) to $2,640 for the priciest 2/2 unit (1,341 square feet).
BROADSTONE COURT, BUCKHEAD VILLAGE:
Name: Broadstone Court
Status: Construction wrapping; leasing begins any day now
Locale: Just off Peachtree Road in Buckhead Village.
Options: Studio, one and two bedrooms
Dubious aspects: Faux-wood flooring, Buckhead Atlanta traffic, MARTA station is a hike away and community name sounds like a cemetery.
Serious perks: Retail and food galore. Like, everywhere. All directions. No need to drive.
Notable amenities: Cabana and fireplace with "intimate seating," deluxe outdoor bar with a drink trough and ice-maker, a yoga and spin studio with cardio on-demand fitness videos and whatever a TRX System is.
For fun: That drink trough.
Also: Electric-vehicle chargers, Moen® fixtures in kitchens and baths.
Range of rents: It's a little too early for floor plans and pricing, but it's likely these will be more expensive than the competition, but surely a discount on The Residences of Buckhead Atlanta, where studios start at about $1,600.
