The building offers spectacular Atlanta skyline views, but with the Sutton rising next door, few units will keep the vista

Just south of The Shops Buckhead Atlanta development, work is charging ahead on the latest luxury apartment offering along Peachtree Road.

Crews have reached the 14th floor of Modera Buckhead, which ultimately will rise 21 stories and contain 399 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments atop 21,000 square feet of retail space.

A tour last week showed promises of posh amenities ranging from a “destination sky bar” to an indoor spa and steam room. Residents will also find two pools—one with a spectacular view of the Atlanta skyline—and fitness centers for both themselves and their pets.

The walkthrough (involving some precarious wooden ladders) offered sweeping views of downtown and Midtown across tree-covered residential neighborhoods, but many of those views will vanish as The Sutton rises next door.

Still, the building promises to provide the unique finishes the Modera brand has become known for around Atlanta. Check out how things are shaping up:

Retail space will ring the building, with frontage along Peachtree and Pharr roads, as well as a space tucked away in the back of the property—possibly a speakeasy or secluded spa space.
Angled columns on the seventh floor, where the residential amenities and main lobby will be.
The view from the eastern pool deck won’t be blocked by construction at The Sutton.
Many of the units feature views up Peachtree Road to Buckhead Triangle
Concrete structure has been poured, but interior walls have yet to start going in.
