Plans are coming into clearer focus for a New York developer’s Buckhead Village high-rise proposal where rents would start in the $2,800 range and climb into the ballpark of $5,200 monthly.

Tidal Real Estate Partners, a New York-based developer with several Savannah projects in its portfolio, is expected to bring detailed plans for its 321 Pharr Road project before the Buckhead SPI-9 Development Review Committee on Wednesday, during the board’s monthly meeting.

According to Tidal’s application for a Special Administrative Permit, the mixed-use luxury building would rise 21 stories, or 225 feet, and reshape what’s currently a low-rise block in Buckhead Village.

As drawn up by Nashville-based ESa architects, Tidal’s plans call for claiming the full block, save a Chevron gas station at the corner of Pharr Road and Grandview Avenue. The 528,500-square-foot building would include 406 apartments, continuing a surge of new luxury rental options around the Village over the past decade. 

According to the SAP application, no studio units are planned in the tower—a break from recent multifamily patterns elsewhere in Atlanta.

Instead, the unit breakdown would be: 170 one-bedrooms, 170 two-bedrooms, and 38 three-bedroom options.

Shocker: The 500 parking spaces planned for both residents and guests falls well below the maximum allowed (702) for this section of Buckhead, per the application.

And in terms of public spaces, the 17,000 square feet shown in drawings would nearly double what the district requires with a development of such scale, according to project leaders.

Renderings indicate the 18,540 square feet of planned retail would be separated into four slots along Pharr Road and North Fulton Drive around the corner.  

The site today is home to an array of smaller buildings where School of Rock, Mediterranean restaurant Lily White, a cleaners, a salon, and other businesses operate. It’s located a block from Jamestown’s Buckhead Village district, between the Alexan Buckhead apartments and landmark restaurant Atlanta Fish Market.

Tidal hopes to start delivering the building in 2025. Find a much deeper dive into how this Buckhead Village block could change in the gallery above.
