Brandishing the largest elevated pool in Buckhead, a solar canopy adorned with Tesla batteries, and rents that practically make disposable income a prerequisite, Buckhead Village’s latest mixed-use piece is prepping to debut in coming weeks.

Positioned in the 500 block of East Pace Ferry Road, just off Piedmont Road, the latest Atlanta venture from Gables Residential—The Ashley—mirrors similar luxury concepts in Miami and Denver that have enjoyed “great success,” Joe Wilber, Gables’s senior vice president of investment, said in a release.

At 15 stories, The Ashley replaces a row of homes turned businesses, buffered from the street by small parking lots. Construction is expected to finish in December, when leasing will launch, reps tell Curbed Atlanta.

The range of rentals will be vast, and rents could flirt with $3 per square foot.

The 2,600-square-foot, three-bedroom townhome layout.

Expect everything from studios of 476 square feet (starting rents: $1,356) to large townhouses of 2,400 square feet (and more) across three stories, which will start at $7,032 per month, officials told Curbed.

What do monthly commitments like those fetch?

Beyond the primetime 88 WalkScore, boosted by nearby retail and entertainment, the building will offer a rooftop dog park, gaming courtyard, movie wall, the aforementioned luxe pool with cabanas, and “a sky lounge with breathtaking city views,” per developers.

The units themselves will have customizable closet systems, wine fridges, stainless steel appliances, and quartz countertops.

Bonus points for a solar photovoltaic canopy, installed over the dog park, that’s designed to provide shade and shelter from the elements and generate an estimated 42,300-kilowatt hours of electricity.

That’s enough to power the sky lounge and all other rooftop amenities, officials said.
