The days of renting a new studio apartment in Buckhead Village for less than $1,500 monthly just might be over.
Further evidence comes this week with the unveiling of The Irby, a 12-story building with a classic bent that’s being described as “an instant Buckhead landmark.”
The Irby saw its first residents move in this month at what used to be the location of the popular Henri’s Bakery, which has relocated to Andrews Square.
Named for Henry Irby, the man widely believed to have founded Buckhead in the 1800s, the Alliance Residential project has 277 units, with entry points being studios of less than 600 square feet for about $1,600 monthly.
Another “Irby” is in the address: 65 Irby Avenue Northwest. At the base is about 13,000 square feet of retail space.
Project officials point to “magnificent ironwork, curated artwork, elegant herringbone wood floors, and other richly designed details” that lend a “modern take on old-world style” and aim to set the building apart.
In individual units, the doors are keyless and ceilings high, with bathrooms described as “spa-like” and flooring called “hardwood-style,” per an announcement of the building’s debut.
There’s no shortage of penthouses—22 of them—with custom finish packages that also include wine fridges and perks like soft-close cabinets.
Elsewhere around the property is a theater room, fire pit, private bar, game room, bike repair station, pet spa, and valet dry-cleaning services.
Have a look around, below.
The least expensive floorplan in the building at the moment is the “Henry” studio, with 548 square feet and rents of $1,585 monthly.
On the flipside is the “Adair,” the building’s priciest floorplan option. For $4,835 monthly, it has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in 1,434 square feet.
But those wouldn’t be the highest rents at new buildings in the neighborhood.
The nearby Gentry tower, at last check, was offering rents for slightly larger studios from $1,837, while the largest penthouse floorplans are $11,695—and up.
