Icon Buckhead (IB), the second Atlanta property from famed developer Related Group (Related), showcases the company’s legendary attention to detail, while serving as a blueprint for other luxury rentals to follow. Developed from the ground up as part of Related’s premier “Icon” brand, IB combines the luxury and exclusivity of high-end condominiums with the convenience and flexibility of rental properties.
The tower’s luxurious approach perfectly complements a neighborhood that’s come to be known as the “Beverly Hills of the South,” with every aspect — including design, amenities and location — tailored to captivate wealthy renters by choice. Featuring architecture from the renowned Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates, IB soars at 420 feet tall and flaunts a unique structural fin that graces the upper floors of the high-rise.
Celebrated designer Michael Habachy employed an equally bold approach inside. Drawing inspiration from nearby high-end shops, all common areas are draped in royal blues and blacks and showcase dark woods and hints of brass and gold throughout.
Available in a variety of sizes and configurations, each of the 361 residences offers sweeping open floor plans and soaring ceilings. Standard floor-to-ceiling windows blanket all apartments in warm, natural light and dramatic wraparound balconies make a grand impression with panoramic views of Buckhead’s lush surroundings.
The amenities are also informed by its sophisticated, upscale residents, featuring everything from museum-quality art and a grand beach-entry hot tub to an expansive fitness center with an outdoor yoga terrace and 25,000-square-foot co-working space. In addition to accolades won, including the “2021 Multifamily Executive Best Amenity” and “2021 Aurora Awards Best Multifamily Housing Community,” Icon Buckhead boasts numerous five-star consumer reviews and has quickly become the city’s most desirable address.
