AMLI buys Buckhead site to build 640 apartments

AMLI closed on the purchase of about 7 acres in Buckhead at Roxboro and East Paces Ferry roads on Nov. 22 for $22.5 million and plans to develop at least 640 apartment units there. The site was purchased from Wells Fargo & Co.

The property, which is considered one of the top development sites in Buckhead because of its location next to Lenox Square and the Lenox MARTA station, was planned several years ago for a $2 billion condominium project named City Place.

[...]

The master plan for the property requires the developer to set the buildings amid parks and a grid-like layout that would promote more walkability. It is expected that the architects for the project also would likely attempt in their designs some sort of connectivity to Lenox Square and MARTA.

Buckhead's Newest Park Takes Shape at AMLI Development



Wasting no time, construction at the former One CityPlace site in Buckhead is barreling ahead in the new year. In a little more than a month, work has shifted from land clearing to grading in preparation for roads and new buildings. As orange construction fences surrounded the site, Curbed went aerial to get a glimpse. Drainage pipes are being installed, regrading is almost complete, and with permits all lined up, it seems likely foundation work for both parcels A and D of the AMLI-driven development will soon commence. Concrete has already been poured for a park that will sit between Roxboro Road and the extension of Lakeside Drive to Wright Avenue.

Nothing wholly original or outstanding but certainly a crisp and well crafted variation on the modern theme. (What do we call this style, anyway?) I like the 2-story cap and the blending of materials on the exterior. The ground level isn't thrilling but I guess the location allows for something more understated. But overall I like it.
