3464 City Apartments near Lenox Square bringing parkside living, walkability to neighborhood

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.
