Tasked with creating a landmark new apartment building in Atlanta’s Buckhead Village, the master architects at Reese Vanderbilt & Associates faced a very high bar for excellence. As the crowning jewel in the undeniably tony retail area, elegance, refinement, and luxury would be requisite to The Sutton aesthetic. The Reese Vanderbilt team drew inspiration from the classic elements of Buckhead’s architecture to ensure the building’s contextual appropriation. In pairing the area’s timeless style with the firm’s approach to modernity, the now-complete 21-story residential tower celebrates urban living at its finest. At Buckhead’s most stylish new address, gorgeous was built from the ground up.
Dazzling Apartments By Design
Set within one of Atlanta’s most-walkable neighborhoods, The Sutton makes a bold statement to anybody strolling past. The building’s “jewel box” design and the light neutrals of the exterior color palate stand out beautifully against the city’s skyline. Great, sweeping windows reflect the bright blues and occasional passing clouds in the Georgian sky and dark bronze window frames hint at the elegant finishes and refined touches to be found in abundance within.
A classic porte-cochère welcomes residents and guests at street level. An element rarely found in contemporary apartment buildings, the porte-cochère exemplifies the classic take on luxury that defines The Sutton. Here, a professional valet parking team is at the ready year-round.
Once inside, an open, two-story lobby introduces the airy ambiance found throughout the building. Distinguished by stately tiling, the lobby features a fireplace and serves as a warm space for gathering with friends before embarking on a night of adventure in the city.
With its commitment to bringing condo-style amenities to each of its residents, The Sutton enlisted Barrett Design to develop the buildings offerings. Experience in creating multifamily residential, retail, wellness, nightclubs and entertainment venues bolster the firm’s reputation for high-end interiors. A 2,500 square foot fitness center boasting Peloton bikes and a Smith machine establishes The Sutton’s dedication to health and wellness for residents. While a bounty of local gyms can be found within walking distance of the high-rise, the ease of the well- equipped, onsite facility proves irresistible to fitness devotees. State-of-the-art equipment promises an exceptional work-out while floor-to-ceiling windows frame a view of The Sutton’s pool deck below.
From a morning dip to a weekend workout, breathtaking skyline views attend anytime spent at the heated, saltwater pool. Lush landscaping and colorful umbrellas accessorize the terrace, where plentiful seating, curtained cabanas, a fire pit and fireplace encourage spirited social engagement. In addition, grilling stations foster al fresco fun with friends and neighbors, accompanied by the crimson skies of sunset over Atlanta in the distance.
When faced with inclement weather, residents may opt to gather inside, at The Sutton’s clubroom or its business center and conference room. Equipped with a catering kitchen, coffee bar and a TV/media area, the clubroom is ideal for entertaining larger groups.
Each of The Sutton’s 151 units was designed to mirror high-end condo living without the commitment of ownership. Embodying the clean, airy aesthetic of current architectural trends, every one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment here centers around its open floor plan, ideal for seamless entertaining. Floor-to-ceiling windows invite abundant natural light, which spills across the engineered hardwood floors and waterfall quartz countertops of each residence. In the kitchen, a spacious island, Bosch appliances, and streamlined Italian cabinetry echo the sophistication found throughout The Sutton. The precision allowed through gas oven and stove- top cooking plus a beverage center with wine shelving encourage resident chefs to dazzle guests in style. Social gatherings unfold effortlessly across the open living-dining-kitchen area or, capitalizing on Atlanta’s temperate climate, outside on the expansive, covered terrace complete with stunning city views.
Elegant finishes and statement-piece lighting pendants adorn every unit. Large master bathrooms with diva-worthy vanities and Kohler plumbing fixtures feature resort-style soaking tubs for end-of-day unwinding.
Raising The Bar in Buckhead
The standard for luxury already established by Buckhead Village has been furthered with the opening of The Sutton. Placement among the area’s high-end boutiques and eateries challenged the building’s design teams to meet the gold-standard offerings surrounding it. With neighbors including Dior, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, and Tom Ford setting the pace for high-style in Buckhead, The Sutton was faced with a very high bar to meet. Today, in offering residents apartments that awe, and amenities that inspire, that challenge has been exceeded.
