For the last few years, mounds of red clay and construction equipment have been a mainstay on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, as the corridor—formerly dominated by strip centers—has quickly evolved into mixed-use central, mostly around the rising City Center site.

Now, construction is beginning to move into its final stages on the latest addition to the neighborhood: Modera Sandy Springs.

Announced last year, the development is bringing the prolific brand to the booming neighborhood with 313 units and plenty of retail space.

With 41 floorplans to choose from, plenty of unique options span the multi-building development. Distinctive features include three skybridges, spanning newly added streets, a rooftop pool with views of the distant Atlanta skyline, and trendy retail offerings including Ebrik Coffee Room, The Local Pizzaiolo, and Casi Cielo.

The smallest one-bedroom units start at nearly $1,270 per month, with two-bedrooms going for more than $2,000, and rare three-bedroom options commanding about $2,400.

Quite a bit of work remains for the building fronting Roswell Road, but residents can start moving into units in the rear buildings next month. The community will be completed early next year, with retail spaces slated to open by the end of 2017.

Eventually, the new street will tie into another new street, running from Roswell Road to Boylston Drive, as part of the buildout of a street grid in the area.
