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.
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.
Cyan on Peachtree
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.
Flats at Ponce City Market
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.
Mill Creek Residential has been pushing their Modera brand hard recently, with two projects breaking ground in the last few weeks.

Located in Morningside, minutes from Midtown or Buckhead, the building features a Sprouts and a small assortment of retail offerings.
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.
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!
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.
