LMC has announced the start of construction of Gentry, a luxury mixed-use apartment community in the Buckhead Village neighborhood of Atlanta.
The 21-story high-rise community, which will feature 290 apartment homes and 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, is being developed in conjunction with Hoar Construction. The companies recently collaborated on The Morris, a luxury apartment community in Nashville that opened in 2017. First move-ins at Gentry are anticipated for mid-2020.
“We’re excited to join the robust Buckhead market and get started on an apartment community that will be situated in the center of so many recreational activities,” said Chris Cassidy, division president of the Southeast for LMC. “With the vast shopping and dining options within walking distance, this will be a place where residents can ditch their cars for the weekend and relax within the neighborhood. With the stellar location, the remainder of the city will be at their fingertips, as well.”
Under construction at 3172 Roswell Road, Gentry is the redevelopment of a one-acre surface parking lot that will add 20-foot wide tree-lined sidewalks and street-level retail to an emerging neighborhood. The site, which boasts a Walk Score of 91, features prime access to attractions such as The Buckhead Theater, The Shops at Buckhead, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Atlanta History Center. Phipps Plaza and Lenox Mall, which offer various additional local and national retailers, are each within two miles of the community.
Gentry will provide near-direct access to several public transit options and the key thoroughfares of the city. The Buckhead MARTA station is 1.2 miles from the community and serves as the gateway to the metropolitan area. Georgia State Route 400? is situated one mile from the community and Interstates 85 and 75 are within a short drive.
“We’re thrilled to team with LMC on another development, particularly one in such a vibrant locale,” said Jason Bennett, division vice president for Hoar Construction. “Our co-development in Midtown Nashville was a resounding success, and we can confidently proclaim that Gentry will feature the same high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail.”
Gentry will consist of studio, 1- , 2- and 3-bedroom apartment homes and a select number of penthouse-level homes with hardwood floors. Apartment interiors will contain high-end finishes, wood-plank style flooring, custom cabinetry and private balconies. Select homes will include kitchen islands and wine fridges.
Community amenities will include an eighth-floor terrace with grills and an outdoor movie theater, and a 21st-floor amenity level. The latter will include a private dining room and catering kitchen, lounge, pool table, swimming pool, indoor/outdoor bar, grills, cabanas and a club-quality fitness center with indoor/outdoor yoga. Residents will also have access to bike storage, electric-vehicle charging stations and work-from-home spaces.
Gentry is LMC’s second apartment community under development in the Atlanta area. Vireo is projected to open in 2019 in Midtown and is also being developed in conjunction with Hoar Construction.
