It’s not the only “sumptuous” residential project proposed for the neighborhood

Right next to a 1950s residential tower that once housed Buckhead’s last “affordable” apartments, another posh housing option could soon be on the rise—and for senior citizens, no less.

Texas-based developer Caddis recently unveiled plans to build Heartis Buckhead, an 18-story luxury senior housing tower, next door to the Darlington—now under renovation after its low-income residents were booted—and across the street from the Shepherd Center, according to Reporter Newspapers.

“This will be the first luxury high-rise senior living community Caddis has developed, and it will be one of the most sumptuous in the country,” Caddis CEO Jason Signor said in a press release.

With 213 units, Heartis Buckhead is slated to span 278,000 square feet at the corner of Peachtree and Peachtree Valley roads.

The high-visibility project would also entail the renovation of a 10-story medical office building sharing the site, as well as the demolition and replacement of a two-story parking deck.

On the amenity front, expect a game room, beauty parlor, and a landscaped plaza, according to the release.

It would also offer independent living, assisted living, and memory care apartments units.

Heartis Buckhead is projected to be move-in ready in 2021, although it’s still in the permitting phase, according to Reporter Newspapers.

This isn’t the only swanky, senior residential project planned for the tony neighborhood.

In Buckhead’s Paces neighborhood, a $300 million, gated senior living community is slated for the north side of Howell Mill Road.

The nine-acre mixed-use campus, called Village Park Senior Living, is expected to dazzle, with French-inspired architecture, courtyards, a movie theater, flower shop, library, salon, wine bar, sports bar, along with several dining venues and bistros.
