The first residents will be moving into AMLI's 3464 City Apartments in Buckhead next month, marking the final step in the transformation of the formerly wooded site — aside from the acreage next door that AMLI doesn't own — into a massive housing development.
Despite the loss of the forest, the area hasn't succumbed to full-on urban density. Rather, AMLI built the development around the brand new Marie Sims Park, which opened last year.
The project has come a long way over the last two years, with hiccups including a minor crane collapse last year.
Residents of the new buildings will enjoy amenities including a rooftop pool, private movie theater, dog park, two-story fitness center, and — get this — eight private offices that can be reserved by residents who work from home.
Meanwhile, the new park is a true amenity for thousands who live and work in the area, and the reconnection of Lakeside Drive — severed more than a decade ago in preparation for the defunct CityPlace project — means greater walkability between neighborhood perks like MARTA, Publix, and Target.
Units range from 817-square-foot one-bedrooms to 2,813-square-foot three-bedrooms. The tower will begin opening Oct. 24, with units on the upper floors available later this year. Mid-rise units will become available around Thanksgiving, with construction on remaining buildings anticipated to wrap up next summer.
