Demolition crews made quick work of a midcentury brick condo building on Peachtree Road at Lindbergh Drive this past week.
As of Sunday, all that remained on the site is a pile of rubble to be carted away in preparation for construction of The Emerson—a long-planned luxury condo tower by JPX Works.
Billed as the "architecture of tomorrow’s Atlanta" and an "ethereal and sculptural" nod to Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Fallingwater house, the 44-unit building (the actual number could be far less, as many buyers are combining units into super-sized floorplans) will feature amenities such as a heated lap pool and "tranquil zen garden."
The glass-walled condos—with sweeping skyline and treetop views—are selling from $2 million.
New luxury condo activity is afoot elsewhere in Buckhead, too.
Just up the road, demolition of a midcentury commercial building on the eastern side of Buckhead Triangle has cleared the way for the similarly posh condo building The Charles.
Announced in its current form last summer, The Charles will offer 57 condos, starting at $1.3 million for two-bedroom units. Penthouses, meanwhile, start 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.
