As Atlanta has emerged from the Great Recession over the last few years, the development of choice across the metro has been the luxury apartment. As more residents choose urban life, mixed-use developments and high-rise apartment towers have popped up across the city. Whether people chose to rent for flexibility, or they can't pull together a down payment, there are tons of people scrambling for a limited (but swiftly growing) supply of apartments; regardless, high rents reflect the popularity of rental living. To help folks find some of the swankiest apartments in Atlanta right now, we've put together a map of white-hot addresses across the city.

1. The Leonard

Copy Link
301 Memorial Drive Southeast
Atlanta, GA 30312
(404) 467-6305
The Leonard is well-suited for renters looking for a little edgy soul in their neighborhood. Located at the cusp of Grant Park, and with a tagline of “Life on Memorial, built around you,” this smallish complex rose from the ashes of a legendary ATL dive bar to offer a bocce court, skyline views, dog-washing spa, and five-minute walkability to MARTA trains. Find legitimate 1/1 units here for about $1,000, sans balcony. And with Memorial Drive in transition, the neighborhood is constantly gaining new amenities.

2. Berkshire Terminus

Copy Link
20 Terminus Place #1100
Atlanta, GA 30305
866-646-5974
While a few years old now, Berkshire Terminus apartments in Buckhead are still primed for the renter who feels that prestige is paramount and price is an afterthought. The “Higher standards. No exceptions.” motto might smack as ultra-pretentious, but this is about as close as Atlanta apartments get to W hotels. Perks include an on-site Starbucks coffee bar, dual rooftop terraces, and a three-minute walk to venerable Bones steakhouse, one of the country’s best. Studio apartments, with less than 500 square feet, start at $1,128.

3. Cyan on Peachtree

3380 Peachtree Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30326
(470) 237-5669
Visit Website
Buckhead's bluest tower came on line a year ago, touting amazing public areas and quartz countertops, top-shelf fixtures, and Bluetooth-distributed audio in the units. Amenities include a dog spa, in-pool lounges, and even a yoga studio. While not the newest offering in the city, it still retains the title of most expensive units for rent, with offerings topping out well over $5,000.

4. Flats at Ponce City Market

Copy Link
675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30308
It's been a couple of years since the Flats at PCM opened, and the location has only gotten better with time, as the restaurant and retail selection in the immediate vicinity blossoms. Soon to feature a public rooftop amusement park, the Flats at Ponce City Market are definitely a unique, albeit expensive, place to live.

5. Modera Morningside

1845 Piedmont Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30324
(855) 533-2527

Mill Creek Residential has been pushing their Modera brand hard recently, with two projects breaking ground in the last few weeks. Their first completed project sits on Piedmont Road and features all the fanciest amenities and high-end finishes to rival towers in Midtown and downtown. Located in Morningside, minutes from Midtown or Buckhead, the building features a Sprouts and a small assortment of retail offerings.

Atlanta, GA 30326
The recently opened apartment tower at Post Alexander in Buckhead is designed to provide the lap-of-luxury lifestyle the urban Millennial craves today. With a rooftop pool offering views of the city and a sky lounge, those who pony up more than $1,400 for a studio, and almost $2,600 for a two-bedroom unit, can enjoy some serious amenities.

7. The Brady

Copy Link
930 Howell Mill Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30318
Recently completed on Howell Mill Road, this Westside apartment building provides residents with quick access to Westside Provisions District and other popular hangouts in the burgeoning neighborhood. The amenities, including a rooftop lounge, don't disappoint; but with studios starting at $1,400, they better not!

8. The Office

Copy Link
1446 Piedmont Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30309
Occupying a 1970s office building on Piedmont Avenue in downtown, these new apartments feature top-of-the-line finishes and palatial amenities to rival any development in Buckhead. Featuring 327 one- and two-bedroom units, the 20-story building's offerings range from $1,400 to more than $3,500.
