The next phase of a Morningside apartment community with outdoor spaces to knock renter’s socks off is set to debut this month, developers said Monday.
The latest of many Modera products to hit metro Atlanta is an addition to the original, Modera Morningside on Piedmont Avenue. This second phase includes 21 “condo-style” rentals and 4,700 square feet of retail fronting Piedmont. Last year, Phase I brought 300 apartments to the fringes of Morningside plus retail anchored by Sprouts Farmers Market.
Phase II apartments will have relatively soaring 12-foot ceilings and either a big private balcony (up to 965 square feet) or rooftop terraces (up to 1,700 square feet). Initial move-ins are slated for late March.
Phase II prices weren’t specified Monday, but leasing materials indicate studios at the complex (615 square feet) are starting north of $1,400.
“Phase II of Modera Morningside will complete the vision we had for the neighborhood,” Oz Friedmann, a Mill Creek development associate, said in a release. “The homes will bring a unique living option to the area, and the retail will further energize the streetscape.”
Other Modera incarnations are popping up from Cobb County and Sandy Springs to Midtown and Buckhead. The company said Monday it has 2,500 residences in development—or in the process of being acquired—and more than 155,000 square feet of retail space underway in metro Atlanta.
Elsewhere on site, a pedestrian bridge is being constructed to allow Phase II residents simplified access to Sprouts and other retail, plus the first phase’s resort-style rooftop pool and a sky lounge with a demo kitchen. Because demo kitchens are the new dog spas.
Developers describe the walkable location as one of the city’s “most vibrant, progressive and accessible communities.”
