The metamorphosis of a Chamblee main drag from a collection of car dealerships, empty lots, and low-rise retail into a mecca of multifamily buildings is continuing in a significant way.

Promising a “rental revolution,” Miami-based Related Development has topped out a block-sized venture called Manor Chamblee, located south of Interstate 285 and just west of the city’s historic downtown.

The 5-acre project, part of Related’s national Manor brand, replaces Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery where Peachtree Boulevard meets Sexton Woods Drive. Atlanta-based Dwell Design Studio designed the project.

According to plans approved in late 2020, Manor Chamblee will see 382 apartments and 10,000 square feet of restaurant space at street level, spread across two buildings.

Other facets include coworking space, a coffee bar and lounge, a voluminous clubroom, a dog park, and a large courtyard with a pool (and a waterfall feature, per renderings).  

Foot-in-the-door studios with 617 square feet will start at $1,777 monthly, according to

Meanwhile, the priciest options—three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,423 square feet—will top out at $3,875 monthly, per the apartments database.
