A journey south on Peachtree Road through Buckhead reveals a rapidly urbanizing corridor, as construction plows ahead on the neighborhood’s tallest tower in more than a decade—and several other forthcoming, high-rise siblings.

The Icon Buckhead project, formerly known as Apogee, is transforming the intersection of Peachtree and Stratford roads, with the development of a 35-story tower.

With 363 units—divided as 15 percent studios, 35 percent one-bedroom, 35 percent two-bedroom, and 15 percent three-bedroom units—the project is anticipated to deliver in the second quarter of 2019.

According to developer Related Group, the property will feature a pool terrace atop the adjacent parking structure. A club room and rooftop fire pit terrace will be on the 35th floor.

At ground level, expect more than 30,000 square feet of retail and office space along Peachtree Road.

The tower is replacing a one-story concrete church that stood on the site for decades. The first residents will move into the building early next year, per the developer.

In coming years, the neighborhood could change dramatically beyond high-rise construction, too, with the opening of the Ga. Highway 400-topping park anticipated for 2022 or 2023.
