Work on Emerson, The Charles, begins along Peachtree Road in Buckhead

Two high-end, highly anticipated Buckhead condo projects along Peachtree Road are moving forward as sales continue.

The Charles, located at Buckhead Triangle, and Emerson, located at Lindbergh Drive, have both revealed demolition is beginning on their respective sites to prepare for construction.

Emerson will bring 44 units to the 2500 block of Peachtree Road, replacing a mid-century low-rise condo building. The JPX Works project is being billed as the "architecture of tomorrow’s Atlanta" and an "ethereal and sculptural" nod to Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Fallingwater house.

Amenities will include a heated lap pool and "tranquil zen garden." Based on renderings, the condo interiors seem to stress simplicity, implementing as few obstructions as possible that would block so much glass.

Condos in the building will start at more than $2 million and quickly go up from there.

Meanwhile, up at Buckhead Triangle, less demolition will be required to begin construction on The Charles.

Announced in its current form last summer, The Charles will offer 57 condos, starting at $1.3 million for two-bedroom units and penthouses starting near $4 million. Condos will average 2,900 square feet, with the units perched atop a 30,000-square-foot retail podium and parking deck.

Expect demolition to take quite some time on both sites, with vertical construction not kicking off until winter or even next spring.
