It (Gables Emory Point)really speaks to those wanting an all-encompassing urban lifestyle.”noted Joe Wilber, Senior Vice President Investments at Gables Residential.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
Gables Residential, a leader in the development and management of multifamily communities, and joint venture partner Cousins Properties, announce that Gables Emory Point, a new 443-unit, luxury apartment community will begin pre-leasing residences starting April 16th with first move-in’s scheduled for August.
Located on the Clifton Corridor, adjacent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and in close proximity to Emory University and Emory Healthcare, Emory Point is a three-phase; $250 million vertically integrated mixed-use development that began construction last July. The development will be the first new retail project built in the trade area in 20 years; the largest private development start inside the Perimeter in more than three years; and the first partnership between Cousins and Gables – two Atlanta-based development companies.
“The interest of Gables Emory Point has exceeded our expectations,” noted Joe Wilber, Senior Vice President Investments at Gables Residential. “Since the ground breaking in July, we have received hundreds of inquiries from prospective renters as well as those interested in the new retail offerings. Emory Point will feature great apartment living in a wonderful location that will be surrounded by restaurants, shops and outdoor amenities. It really speaks to those wanting an all-encompassing urban lifestyle.”
In addition to its ideal location, Gables Emory Point will boast apartment features that are high-quality and eco-conscious. Features include stunning views of the Atlanta skyline, quartz countertops in kitchens and bathrooms, stylish tile backsplash accents, stainless steel appliances, a front load washer and dryer in every apartment home and floor plans that include a mix of studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom- and 3-bedroom designs.
Community amenities include a tranquil saline pool, sundecks with relaxing water features, abundant courtyards and green spaces, an athletic club, club lounge, business center with wireless internet, a cyber-lounge, dog park, elevator access to all floor levels, secured bike storage and an unsurpassed location that is only minutes to Lullwater Park and the center of the Emory University campus.
Both the residential and the retail portions of Emory Point were designed and built with sustainable features and products such as an eco-friendly rainwater irrigation system, energy efficient buildings that include high-efficiency HVAC systems, windows, lighting and roofing materials, Energy Star-rated appliances and connectivity to mass transit, bike paths and pedestrian walkways. The project is currently seeking Earth Craft Communities, Earth Craft Light Commercial and Earth Craft Multifamily certifications.
The retail portion of Emory Point has had tremendous success and will soon feature CVS Pharmacy, Marlow’s Tavern, Tin Lizzy’s, Jos. A Bank, Which Wich, Jazmin Spa, Fresh to Order , La Tagliatella, American Threads and many others to be announced soon.
Recently, Emory Point was awarded the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “Best in Atlanta” award in the mixed-use category. The project was noted for the rising demand of apartment living, the most favored type of development because the supply of apartment units has dwindled during the economic downturn. The project was also commended for the retail and restaurants that will be near the Emory University campus and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – a huge employment center that currently has access to few retail amenities. Combined, the residential and retail components at Emory Point are expected to create more than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Pre-leasing will begin April 16th and will include previewing floor plans, pricing and selection of apartment homes. The temporary leasing office is located at 855 Emory Point Drive, Atlanta, GA 30329. Preview Center leasing hours are Monday and Friday 9:00-6:00, Tuesday and Thursday 10:00-6:00, Wednesday 9:00-7:00, Saturday 10:00-5:00 and Sunday 1:00-5:00.
