Florida firm seeks to build 26- & 19-story apartment towers at Piedmont and Lenox roads in Buckhead
Friday Feb. 15, 2013
Florida-based real estate company Crocker Partners LLC filed a rezoning request with the city Feb. 12 for a 6.5-acre tract next to its 18-story Prominence office tower in Buckhead to build two apartment towers of 26 and 19 stories, according to an Atlanta Business Chronicle story.
The two proposed towers for the site at Piedmont and Lenox roads—at the western end of the Buckhead Loop—would be one of the largest apartment projects in Atlanta.

According to the ABC, Crocker Partners would be taking a prime location typically used for another office tower and instead develop apartment units, which the ABC called “a sign of the times.”
Crocker Partners reportedly is planning its project in two phases. The first would contain the larger 26-story tower and 380 units. The second phase would house a 19-story tower with about 322 units. The Business Chronicle said Crocker Partners declined to comment about the project.
At more than 760,000-square-feet combined, it’s one of the largest projects planned in Buckhead since the office boom several years ago. According to the ABC story, It could take much of this year to get its zoning, real estate executives familiar with the project said.
