Rent Luxuriously, Live Simply

Luxury Atlanta Apartment Herb GardenLooking for ways to make luxury Atlanta apartment living more eco-friendly? Consider a few helpful tips for going green in an apartment setting from the blog of one of Atlanta’s premiere luxury apartment buildings,

Kingsboro.

  • Use it or lose it: Unplug electronics that aren’t in use. Even when they’re in “sleep” mode they are still eating a lot more energy and money than you think. Similarly, turn off all of the lights when you leave a room.
  • Make energy efficient: Need to replace an old appliance? Look for energy-efficient models.
  • Switch it up: Start using compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) instead of incandescent bulbs. CFL uses less wattage by making light instead of converting light into heat.
  • Get growing: Visit local farmer’s markets to pick up fresh produce or plant your own herb garden on your windowsill.
  • Wishy washy: Washing your laundry on the cold setting can conserve about 80 percent of the energy used in a hot setting.
  • Cut it short: Conserve water by taking shorter showers and turning the water off while you’re brushing your teeth.
  • Reuse, reduce: Lessen your carbon footprint by printing on recycled paper, filling reusable water bottles and using cloth napkins. All of these simple switches create less waste!

Are you already living green in your

luxury Atlanta apartment? We’d love to hear how you’re lifestyle is making a positive eco-friendly impact! For more on green new homes Atlanta, be sure to check out Atlanta Real Estate Forum.

According to a

National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) webinar, the location of an apartment building is the most important feature for renters when choosing where they want to live. Millennials are the largest segment of the renting population, and they gravitate towards more urban areas and transportation hubs, which is where multifamily builders and developers are focusing their efforts.

“It’s all about the lifestyle for today’s renters. They want the urban experience of less commute time and immediate access to various activities,” said Jeff Kayce, vice president at Bozzuto Development Company and one of the webinar’s presenters. “Because of this, many developers are building near transit hubs and along transit lines. Bozzuto, for example, has been building many of its new apartments along DC’s metro line to create easier access for its renters.”

Besides location, apartment renters are looking for beautifully, designed common areas. Currently, these areas are being designed to have spaces merge together, creating a more open feel. “In the previous design cycle we saw separate, distinct rooms,” said Rohit Anand, AIA, and principal of the KTGY Group and webinar presenter. “Now we have the computer room, media center and lounge all part of the same room, for example. This type of design helps foster interaction among residents.”

In addition, fitness has become a priority in luxurious apartment living. According to presenters, the design of the fitness center has changed over the years from being more that a dark room overlooking the parking lot. Today, the minimum size of a fitness center is between 1,200 and 1,500 square feet. Having state-of-the-art fitness equipment in addition to a yoga and Pilates program plays a significant role while shopping for apartments.

Other emerging trends include amenities for dog runs, pet washing stations, garden plots, bike storage and workshop spaces. The use of outdoor gathering areas with an outdoor fireplace for colder seasons is also becoming popular as well as the location of the pool.

Atlanta Apartment Rents on the Rise

Posted by: | Comments (0)

According to recent analytics from

TransUnion Corporation, national apartment rents were up 4.4 percent in the first quarter. Leading the way was the Atlanta market, which saw a 6.3 percent increase.

The average rent for the nation increased to $865 from $829, while Atlanta average rent increased to $783from $737. Atlanta was the only market that saw such a significant increase in rental prices. Many markets, including Denver, Chicago and Los Angeles, are still experiencing declines in rental prices.

“It’s not a surprise that rental prices increased in the first quarter as recent industry data revealed that vacancy rates reached their lowest levels since 2001,” said Mike Mauseth, president of TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions. “Our data highlights the fact that rental markets must truly be observed city by city as there are differences even in the largest metro areas situated relatively close to each other. For instance, our analysis revealed that rental prices dropped in Houston and Los Angeles while they increased in Dallas and San Diego.”

Even with rental prices on the rise, Atlanta still has some of the hottest apartments around. For more information on all of the latest Atlanta apartments news, be sure to visit

multi family housingResidents and their guests at Rockledge not only enjoy an apartment community with the best in home features, like open floor plans, walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances and marble countertops, they also enjoy beautifully planned amenities, designed by award-winning design firm, Leslie Schlesinger Interiors. The Palm Beach-based company that specializes in hospitality and high-end and multi-family residential industries recently completed the work on the resort-style amenities at Rockledge, an Atlanta area apartment community.

Rockledge is located very close to the Chattahoochee River, and offers guests direct access to the Chattahoochee National Preserve, which allows residents to connect with the great outdoors. So it is only fitting that

Leslie Schlesinger Interiors carried the theme of connecting with nature throughout the amenities in the community.

The community’s impressive amenities include seven swimming pools, tennis courts, sand volleyball, 80-seat movie theater, playgrounds, running and biking trails and more. The 18,000 square foot clubhouse is surrounded by stone columns and stone flooring and natural wood siding along the exterior walkways, and a natural wood awning that provides shade and cover, but also lets in plenty of natural light. Leslie Schlesinger Interiors provided the perfect spot for residents to relax and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors with wide, reclining Adirondack chairs, outdoor fireplace, picnic tables, ceiling fans with overhead lighting and gas grills. The outside seating areas also include small, ambiance-enhancing touches like Asian-inspired carriage lanterns hanging from the exterior walkways.

The clubhouse includes a basketball court with a floor-to-ceiling Rockledge logo painted on one wall and an indoor walking/running track circles above the court. Read More→

Trips are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays throughout August. You can choose to take a morning canoe ride on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. Or, if you’d prefer you can take an evening trip on Saturday or Sunday at 6 p.m. Admission is $25 for CNC members and $30 for non-members.

apartments in AtlantaAfter recent events leading to the current slump in the housing market, real estate markets are seeing more and more renters entering them. This has been the case in the Atlanta real estate market, as our city has been named the 16th-best market for rental properties.

The cities with the best rental climate generally have markets in which home prices have fallen substantially. Though it is apartments that are widely accepted as rentals, it is estimated by HomeVestors of America Inc. that 14 percent of America’s single-family homes are maintained as rental properties.

From January through May, about half of all home closings in Atlanta were under $100,000, and a further 23 percent were under $50,000, as reported by Steve Palm of Smart Numbers. Because home prices are below their previously seen average, these otherwise empty homes are easily turned into competitive rental properties. This is great news for those seeking to rent properties.

free photoThere will be a new addition to the city skyline soon enough. Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. are planning Midtown’s first high-rise multifamily project in nearly ten years.

The development, called “77 12th Street,” is to be a 22-story apartment tower located at 12th Street and Crescent Avenue. This tower is being designed by local Atlanta architects Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio LLC.

Upon completion, the new tower of high rise homes will be located across from Ri Ra, an Irish pub in the Midtown area.

In a recent interview with Atlanta Business Chronicle, Steve Selig, the president of Selig Entreprises, has dubbed the Midtown area the perfect place for such an apartment project due to its location in the heart of Atlanta, traffic grid, park, arts and educational opportunities.

In terms of Atlanta real estate, the midtown area has not seen development of a substantial new tower since the 2002 Metropolis project built by Wood Partners LLC and Novare Group Inc. Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. actually pushed this project to the top of its priority list after deciding to hold off on a project that would have created a new tower of offices in the Atlanta area.
