626 DeKalb Apartments
REDESIGNING DEKALB AVENUE WITH LUXURY APARTMENTS AS A BENCHMARK.
THE PROJECT: 626 DeKalb Apartments, located on DeKalb Avenue, was a ground-up development completed in 2003, and at the time was the first 5-story apartment community to be erected in Metro-Atlanta.
THE CATALYST: This 204 unit luxury apartment deal was designed as a 5 story apartment building wrapped around a 5 story parking structure. The parking was designed to be completely hidden and the architecture fits the form and style of the surrounding neighborhood. Property features included a top-floor coffee and relaxation lounge, movie theater, pool and state-of-the-art fitness center. Unit features included granite countertops, tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, and included washers and dryers.
RESULTS: Achieving acclaim in above-trend design, while increasing rents with 100% leased status in this sub-market of Intown Atlanta, this project was sold in 2006, and later rebranded as West Inman Lofts.
