An apartment community marketed as a “quiet oasis” in southeast Atlanta has entered the home stretch on building its second phase after fully renting the first, developers tell Urbanize Atlanta.

Phase two of the Flats at East Atlanta project has taken shape at 2536 Flat Shoals Road, a previously vacant site just north of Interstate 20 in unincorporated Decatur’s Candler-McAfee neighborhood.

The gated community is about three miles from the heart of East Atlanta Village, via Flat Shoals Road.

According to Audubon, an Atlanta-based apartment developer and management company, the first move-ins at phase two are scheduled to begin this summer. The final phase includes 112 garden-style (read: surface parking galore) rentals in buildings standing three and four stories.

All new apartments have either one or two bedrooms, each with patios or balconies, as drawn up by architecture firm Dynamik Design. Units include walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances, and washer-dryer pairs, among other perks, per Audubon officials.

The fully leased initial phase of Flats at East Atlanta saw 140 units—with one to three bedrooms—take shape alongside a pool, dog park, and package receiving center that both phases will share.

As for pricing, rents for one-bedroom apartments with 710 square feet start at $1,423 monthly.

The largest options—three-bedroom, two-bathroom pads with 1,325 square feet—rent for $1,725 and up, according to the project’s website.

Andrew Schwarz, Audubon chief executive officer, said in a project announcement that Flats at East Atlanta has succeeded in offering people moving to the city “a beautiful place to call home that’s close to restaurants, shopping, parks, bike trails, and nightlife, with easy access to their job.”
