Peachtree Corners is getting a new luxury apartment community that is designed to appeal to millennials.
The new Echo Lakeside community will be located in Technology Park Atlanta area, taking its name from the two adjoining lakes that it will sit on. Once completed, it will offer 295 one and two bedroom units that are expected to fall in the $1,000 to $1,900 price range.
“Echo Lakeside is an important investment for our city in terms of livability for our millennial workforce, many of which hold technology-based jobs in Technology Park and surrounding office parks,” Mayor Mike Mason said in a statement. “The convenience of nearby residential rental space will ensure that the city continues drawing a dynamic workforce to fill these important positions.”
Peachtree Corners and Brand Properties officials broke ground on the development on Thursday, and the city has announced the residential community is expected to be open by next summer. The complex, which Brand Properties is developing, will be located on 14 acres at 510 Guthridge Court, which is off Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and Reps Miller Road.
The development is expected to have a number of features ranging from traditional apartment complex amenities, such as a clubhouse, fitness center and pool, to some less traditional offerings, including as a cyber cafe and an Uber lobby. It’s location on the lakes will provide it with a boat dock, a dog park, hiking and biking trails and, of course, lake access.
The apartments themselves are expected to have stainless steel appliances, 9-foot ceilings and designer cabinetry.
“We are thrilled to bring Echo Lakeside to Peachtree Corners,” Brand Properties CEO Brand Morgan said in a statement. “We think the serenity of the surroundings, coupled with the high-end amenities will make Echo Lakeside the community of choice for the growing job market.”
