Two and ½ years after construction began on a vast sea of asphalt parking lots, developers report more than 100 residential leases have been signed at Dunwoody’s new High Street district, marking the first signs of activation at the project’s initial phase.

That’s evidence, according to GID Development Group, that the MARTA-connected location is working, even before a single retailer debuts.

GID, a national real estate developer, operator, and owner, reports that two apartment buildings—Windsor Brompton and Windsor Avery—have fully opened, with roughly 50 residents having moved in so far since late January. (Project reps have provided photos of how the Windsor Communities amenities and units turned out, as seen in the gallery above.)

With 598 units total, the new residences are situated over retail space and around a central park that’s designed for seasonal events, such as yoga in warmer months and ice-skating in winter. The greenspace is expected to be a centerpiece of the 36-acre, 10-block, multi-phase development GID says could ultimately cost $2 billion.

“Just a short walk from the Dunwoody MARTA Station, residents can live a completely car-free lifestyle at High Street—a rarity for Atlanta,” notes a recent project announcement.

Convenience does come with a price. Rents at High Street are starting at $1,538 monthly for studio units with between 496 and 504 square feet.

The priciest options, renting for $3,216 monthly, have two bedrooms and two bathrooms and between 1,154 and 1,160 square feet.

Sixteen different floorplans are being offered total. Everything from cabinetry colors to balcony size and orientation helps determine High Street price points.

Onsite amenities include an outdoor gaming lawn, coworking spaces, a fitness and yoga studio, a catering kitchen, a pool with sundeck, a dog wash, and a “bike lounge” with a repair station.

The first High Street phase includes nine buildings, with 90,000 square feet of loft offices mixed in amongst the apartments and retail jewel boxes.

The 11 announced retailers so far—Puttshack, Jaguar Bolera, Nando’s PERi-PERi, Velvet Taco, Allen Edmonds, Skin Spirit, The Hampton Social, Agave Bandido, Cuddlefish, Ben & Jerry’s, and Sugar Coat—are all scheduled to open throughout this year, according to project leaders.

“Residents will have an incredible mix of chef-driven restaurants, engaging retailers, and experiential concepts coming straight to their doorstep, along with beautiful private amenities,” GID president James Linsley said in an announcement. “With Windsor’s best-in-class resident services, there is no other community like this in Atlanta.”
