Over the last several years, we’ve seen a shift in societal norms. What the generation before us once called normal, we call obsolete. We seek convenience. “What can make our lives easier?’ is the question we’re constantly asking ourselves and the market is ready to answer, every single time. In this era, the emergence of Live, Work, Play communities have become wildly popular in growing cities across America and Atlanta is no different. If living within or near a live, work, pay community is your desire, we’ve compiled a list of them for you to check out.
1380 Atlantic Drive NW | Atlanta, GA 30363 | Atlanticstation.com
When Atlantic Station came on the scene, it was a revolutionary concept. Turning an old steel mill into a live, work, play community was not something Atlanta was extremely familiar with. From the movie theater to the restaurants and shops, Atlantic Station is always busy. Recently undergoing a new facelift, the dynamic and feel has changed even more. Settled in the center of Midtown, Atlantic Station is a world of its own. There is almost nothing you can’t get while you’re there. According to Know Atlanta, “On the residential side, the development features townhomes, lofts above storefronts, multifamily apartment communities and high-rise condos across price ranges, including Atlantic, a spectacular high-rise condominium complex featuring art deco glamour and spacious residences. To that list, AMLI will soon develop a new 360-unit luxury rental building at 19th and Market streets, which is slated to open in 2021.”
Ponce City Market
675 Ponce De Leon Avenue NE | Atlanta, GA 30308 | poncecitymarket.com
What used to be a Sears, Roebuck & Company building is now a 2.1 million square foot land of classy retail and unique eats. Often the destination for photoshoots, Ponce City Market is a unique combination of eclectic businesses, lofts, retail, restaurants, and even a (very small) amusement park at the top. Ponce City Market maintains a deep connection with their community, offering 20 percent of their residential units as affordable housing. This is a live work play area that you truly must experience to understand its vast appeal.
400 Avalon Boulevard | Alpharetta, GA 30009 | experienceavalon.com
Some say Alpharetta, a city about 30 minutes outside of the perimeter, earned its title for the fastest growing city of 2017 because of the live work play development, Avalon. According to its residents, the biggest benefit of living at Avalon is having everything you need at your fingertips. Avalon features classic retail brands and classy shops, a conference center, full service hotel, office buildings that house brands such as Microsoft, single family and luxury rental homes, and 20 chef driven restaurants. If you’re familiar with Alpharetta, you know it is a hub for families, young professionals, and distinguished businesses. Avalon brings it all together, creating space for visitors and residents to enjoy the best of everything within arms reach.
4330 Peachtree Road NE | Brookhaven, GA 30319 | townbrookhaven.net
Like a few of our live work play villages, Town Brookhaven started out as a growth project. Located on Peachtree Road just north of Buckhead’s Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza and adjacent to Oglethorpe University, Town Brookhaven is now a 54-acre live-work-play treasure that offers the perfect blend of retail, dining, services and living options. Town Brookhaven may be the perfect place for a self care day OR a neverending date with someone you love. There are shops for casual retail shopping, a movie theater, nail salons, massage parlors, and more. Office space is at capacity and young professionals fill the nearly 1,000 upscale residential apartment units across three distinct communities.
290 Heatherden Avenue | Fayetteville, GA 30214 | pinewoodforest.com
Pinewood Forest grew out of the success of Pinewood Atlanta Studios, a one million-square-foot film production campus located directly across the street. What began as a way to provide housing for the 4,000 employees of the studio has become a “cluster of creatives” according to Rob Parker. Still in development, Pinewood Forest is expected to include 1,400 homes, 12 restaurants, an office center, a school, a fitness center, nine cinemas, two hotels, 19 parks and over 15 miles of nature trails. If you’re in the area, be on the lookout for this one of a kind development to bring new things to the city of Fayetteville.
