First pitched nearly five years ago, a Chicago-based developer’s high-rise plans for Buckhead Village are finally moving forward.

CA Ventures initially brought blueprints before Buckhead design review committees in 2018 for an upscale apartment high-rise that would claim a low-rise commercial building and a condo complex at the northeast corner of East Paces Ferry Road and Grandview Avenue.

Demolition permits for the project were issued to CA Ventures and its development partners in March, according to City of Atlanta Office of Buildings records.

The existing structures in Buckhead Village have more recently been brought down, clearing the way for CA Ventures' next intown high-rise at 340 East Paces Ferry Road. The company has completed two Midtown towers—903 Peachtree and the HERE Atlanta student apartments—within the past two years.

On East Paces Ferry, plans call for a 22-story building containing 483 luxury apartments, with amenities placed on the 10th floor and a valet-style drop-off area for residents below.

Also included in plans is 17,000 square feet of retail space along East Paces Ferry Road, according to Atlanta architecture firm Niles Bolton Associates, which is on board for designs.

One unique component is more than 100 parking spaces for electric vehicles in the building, including some specially designed and reserved for Tesla models, per the architecture firm.

According to plans submitted in 2019, the building would top out at 225 feet, the maximum height allowed in the village.

CA Ventures’ project isn’t the only high-rise activity percolating in Buckhead Village’s core blocks.

Directly across East Paces Ferry Road, another company based in greater Chicago, Harbor Bay Ventures, is moving plans forward for a 20-story, mixed-use tower that would be partially constructed of mass timber.

About a block south of that site, New York-based Tidal Real Estate Partners plans to build a 21-story project that would consume nearly a full block of the village.
