A Homerun for High-End

Sitting just inside Atlanta’s perimeter and a stone’s throw from the Brave’s stadium, Chattahoochee River nature trails, and several business districts, Encore is a high-end apartment community that complements the endless energy and potential of the area.

Space for Everyone

We knew we needed to design a place that welcomes all walks of life, from your sports-goers to your business-minded to your nature-lovers. One thing they can all get on board with: high-end, walkable in-town living with an impeccable rooftop view.

Beyond offering a nice mix of unit types that range in style, floorplan and price, we also had to think big when it came to amenities. In the state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen on the first floor, residents can take cooking classes or use this space for entertaining. There’s also a luxurious rooftop terrace with a lap pool, fitness center, clubhouse, grilling stations and stunning views of the city. To top it all off, we added a 9-hole putting course and a dog park and pet care center.

Lessons Learned

The site that The Encore sits on was a difficult piece of land—from the 60 feet change in elevations to the existing buildings and infrastructure that we had to work around. The building itself had many design challenges due to the complexities of some of the unique features of the community, like the rooftop terrace and the commercial kitchen. In order to deliver a prime apartment community on a tricky site, we had to be clever with design solutions—from the planning phase all the way through construction.
