Description:

The Cosmopolitan Townhomes are one component of a 258 unit urban infill residential project in Buckhead Atlanta. The development occupies 4.7 acres north of Lindbergh Drive. This first phase of townhomes includes 14 homes with 32 additional townhomes planned for Phase II. The 3-story townhomes provide a transition from the lower density surroundings to the higher density condominium buildings. The primary façade material of the townhomes is brick. Complementary tan and brown bricks are applied to each individual townhome to provide the development with a traditional street rhythm. A rear alley has been provided to allow for private entrances to the townhomes and to maintain an uninterrupted street frontage. Large front, side, and rear windows allow light into the open plan interior spaces. Rear privacy walls screen the rear decks for the side street.
