Just a few years ago, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Chamblee was lined with strip centers, warehouses, and sprawling parking lots doubling as dumping grounds.
In an attempt to change perception of the road, Chamblee elected to drop the “Industrial” name back in 2008. Of course, it takes more than a tweaked road name to actually spur investment.
One of the first new apartment developments to arrive on Peachtee Boulevard, Olmsted, highlights just how much the area has changed, while wholeheartedly embracing its location; a massive, lighted “CHAMBLEE” sign tops its roof.
From the street, the new building alludes to the industrial heritage of the area, evoking images of old brick storehouses.
The building offers 15 different floorplans—from one-bedroom options to three-bedroom townhomes, complete with two-car garages. In addition to residences, it also offers office space for rent, a “den” with billiards and garages opening up to the pool, and space for restaurants to occupy.
Apartments go for between $1,200 and $3,800, and the website indicates there are at least 50 units still available.
