A preview of the Heartis Buckhead luxury senior residential tower

Expansive views of the Atlanta skyline and urban forest are a big selling point of the luxurious Heartis Buckhead senior residential tower, which is prepping for a opening by this summer.

Buckhead.com recently got an exclusive sneak preview tour of the 18-story tower at 2051 Peachtree Road at the Peachtree Valley Road intersection. The preview included not only a well-appointed interior, but also the views from multiple balconies, sun decks and extensive floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. On a clear day, the view includes Stone Mountain to the east and Kennesaw Mountain to the northwest.

Announced in 2019, the 218-unit tower replaced what was a small parking garage for an adjacent office tower that also has been renovated largely into medical offices. Texas-based developer Caddis built the Buckhead tower as part of a Heartis line that includes many properties around the country, including in Fayetteville and Suwanee in the Atlanta metro area. Managed by Integral Senior Living, the Buckhead tower includes independent and assisted living sections as well as memory care.

It’s part of a boom in luxury senior housing through the metro area that in Buckhead includes such complexes as Peachtree Hills Place and Corso Atlanta.

Heartis Buckhead features a wealth of amenities: a rooftop swimming pool, a barber shop, a beauty salon, all-day dining, a bar and lounges, a grill and juice bar, an art studio, a game room, a library, a reading room, a theater, a fitness center, sun decks, a spa and a putting green. And we’re probably forgetting a few.

The amenities, furnishing and decor were still in the works during the visit. The illustrations in this story include our photos as well as some conceptual photoillustrations from Heartis.

Local touches in the decor include historic photos of Atlanta and Georgia, from such sources as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Buckhead-based Atlanta History Center, lining the walls of residential hallways.

Standing on a bustling section of Peachtree in southern Buckhead, Heartis is close to such conveniences and institutions as a Fresh Market grocery store, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Piedmont Atlanta Hospital and the Sheperd Center rehabilitation hospital.

The Atlanta BeltLine trail and tranist system is planned to make its way close to the tower in the next several years.
