Days could be numbered for a tucked-away, garden-style apartment community a few steps from Atlanta’s signature street.
That’s according to development plans filed with the City of Atlanta’s Office of Buildings that call for replacing the One Peachtree Hills Apartments in the neighborhood of the same name.
The complex of one-bedroom units is located at 11 Peachtree Hills Ave., a block south of the Publix-anchored Peachtree Battle Shopping Mall and just north of Peachtree Creek’s winding banks.
According to a Special Administrative Permit application filed last month by TSW architects, a two-story building will be demolished, while granite walls on site will remain standing.
The proposed replacement from Pruiett Capital Partners calls for a three-story multifamily building with 44 apartments and an amenity terrace on the roof.
Apartments would range from studios to two-bedroom options, each with open balconies. As required by zoning, fixed bike racks, light poles, and new street trees would also be added to the site, per the SAP filing.
The property currently includes a parking garage accessed via Fairhaven Circle that’s partially underground. That will also be retained, the application indicates.
We’ve asked members of the development team for a construction outlook and for any project imagery, but they couldn’t be reached as of press time.
Property records indicate the .6-acre property last sold for $4 million in summer 2022 to an LLC called 11 Peachtree Hills Holdings.
According to Apartments.com, the average size of current units at the Peachtree Hills location is one bedroom and one bathroom in 750 square feet. None are listed as being for rent now, but overall the community is marketed as “a wonderful place for people of all ages, with a playground, tennis courts, community garden, walking paths, and open greenspace to sit and relax.”
The apartments were the subject of a code complaint in February related to a bedroom with “rotting fake-wood planks,” where rainwater was seeping up from floorboards into a bedroom and causing apparent mold, according to city filings made by a resident.
