Creature Comforts in Buckhead

The first residents are settling in at The Sutton Buckhead. They’ve moved in their chic sofas, their favorite paintings, their dining tables, and plushest rugs. And, they’ve moved in their rawhide treats, their favorite leash, and their can’t-live-without-em chew toys. For at Buckhead’s newest luxury address, both doctors and Dalmations, architects and Alsatians, and lawyers and Labradoodles share the terrain. And with a commitment to first-class comfort for canines, the pet-friendly residence has set a new bar for welcoming Man’s Best Friend to inspired, urban living.


Pet Project for Atlanta Developer

“Many of our residents have pets. And we really love them all,” enthuses Sarah Byrd, Assistant Manager of The Sutton. The building’s developers had always planned on creating a residence that welcomed dogs and the finished product has proven to be successful in that endeavor. An enclosed dog park, Byrd explains, will be completed in September and the building’s dog spa, bathing and grooming area are already up and running. In honoring the needs of the busy, city-dwelling pet owner, the emphasis here is on ease. “We have several dog walkers and dog sitters that come right to the building but there are lots of other terrific facilities in the area, as well” Byrd says.

The Sutton has no weight limit restrictions for its dog population. All size dogs are welcome and subject to specific rates for residence. “Our pet deposit for dogs under 25 pounds is $250 and a $250 pet fee. For dogs over 25 pounds, the deposit is $500 and a pet fee of $500. An additional $20 per pet is charged on top of monthly rent,” Byrd explains.

The Sutton staff’s puppy love begins upon entry to the building. “Our concierge is always ready to greet dogs coming through the lobby with a treat.” Additionally, The Sutton’s prime location in the bustling heart of Buckhead ensures that a wealth of canine-coddling options are available just outside the door.

 – Buckhead and Atlanta Pet Friendly Restaurants

Atlanta has long been recognized as a mecca for distinguished dining. Countless area restaurants have opened their doors to both patrons and their canine companions, including White Hall Tavern, Anis Bistro, and Lucky’s Burger and Brew. For residents of Buckhead, a few options have become go-to destinations for spending special time with their pets:

 A brief stroll from The Sutton leads to the Shake Shack. A hot spot for casual dining and spirited socializing, the venue’s exceptional burgers, magnificent custard, and open-air rooftop patio have made it a Buckhead foodie favorite. Better still, dogs are always welcome and honored with Shake Shack’s sit-up-and-beg-worthy dog menu. Options include “The Pooch-ini” and “Bag of Bones,” each comprised of artisanal biscuits from New York City’s Bocce bakery.

 For brunch-lovers, locals can’t beat the Treehouse Pub. Located in nearby Peachtree Hills, the restaurant boasts “Beer, Bourbon and Great Food” and keeps its regulars blissfully happy with dishes like Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Crab Benedict and the Georgia Pecan Waffle. Here, you’ll enjoy the crackling energy of Buckhead’s social scene alongside your pooch. The Pub’s patio is always prepared with a set of water bowls on hand. 

Variety is the Dish Du Jour at Atlanta’s Food Truck Park. Canines abound at this unique, outdoor enclave of food venues on Howell Mill Road. A rotating roster of vendors including Gezzo’s Surf and Grill, Nana G’s, and Tex’s Tacos serve mouthwatering to-go meals from around the globe. Plus, live music adds to the festive vibe Thursday through Sunday nights.

You can’t keep a good dog down. Therefore, a number of nearby dog parks encourage mutts-in-motion across rolling grasses that belie Atlanta’s urban landscape.

 Piedmont Dog Park is set within Atlanta’s gorgeous and expansive Piedmont Park, where picnicking families, weekend joggers, and bicyclists dot the landscape. The dog park enclave affords lots of room to run and is one of metro Atlanta’s few locations to feature an off-leash area for boundless play.

Further north of the city, The Sandy Springs Dog Park boasts nearly 3.5 acres. Two specially designated zones for small and large dogs allow for off-leash exercise across grassy hills, around trees, and along a picturesque creek.

From the pet pampering of The Sutton’s dog spa to the wealth of pet-friendly amenities found locally, every dog has its day at 2965 Peachtree Road in Buckhead.

Buckhead’s Newest Luxury High Rise Welcomes Its First Residents

This summer, The Sutton welcomed its inaugural group of residents to Buckhead’s hottest new address. Over the course of three weeks in July, thirty-five residents moved into the building, bringing a spirited energy to the hallways and common areas of The Sutton. Days devoted to the unpacking of boxes, the arrangement of furniture, and picture hanging along with refreshing dips in the building’s saltwater pool or cardio sessions at the in-house gym. Since then, residents have experienced their first series of mornings, waking in their elegantly appointed new apartments complete with dazzling Atlanta skyline views. “Now that the staff and the first residents have settled in,” Sarah Byrd, The Sutton’s Assistant Manager explains, “there’s a real feel of community coming together here.

This month, The Sutton team has events planned to further the social connections among residents. Both events are designed as “meet your new neighbor” gatherings showcasing food, fun, and fraternity. On August 18, The Sutton Pool Party will unfold across the outdoor terrace. Classic summertime grilling favorites will be served and guests are invited to socialize among the cabanas and around the fire pit overlooking the city’s magnificent skyline. “This will be a real celebration of the season,” Sarah says, “with food and refreshments. And to give our residents a taste of a favorite Buckhead staple, we’ll have King of Pops on hand with some of their signature popsicles.”

The Sutton’s Social Events Emphasize Global and Local Giving

Residents of The Sutton Buckhead apartments are privy to a best-kept secret: 30305 is the zip code to beat in Atlanta. World-class shopping, exceptional dining and nightlife, pristine parks, and entertainment venues rival any in the city. A feeling of gratitude accompanies living in the Buckhead area and with that, there is often a desire to give back—to pay forward one’s good fortune. The Sutton’s developer and management team recognize the altruistic nature of the area’s denizens and, by hosting an ongoing series of social events, they hope to champion the causes most important to tenants. From wide-ranging events with global implications to smaller scale gatherings promoting networking or special interests, The Sutton aims to further the goals of a community that cares.

Ambul Jain is a future resident of The Sutton. His humanitarian efforts, however, reach far beyond his Buckhead home. In May, 2016, Jain founded Feed A Billion, a non-profit organization devoted to providing healthy meals to people in need around the world. Following a particularly revelatory experience while delivering food in Atlanta, his hometown, Jain recognized, as he explains, “the correlation between food and self-worth, and how the impact of hunger on humanity, especially children, is devastating on more than just a physical level.”

The launch of Feed A Billion was inspired by some truly staggering statistics: 795 million people globally have no idea where their next meal will come from, and every 4 seconds, a person dies from hunger. This amounts to the loss of 21,600 lives daily on an international level. Jain’s ambitious goal envisions serving one billion nutritious meals throughout impoverished communities by 2020. To date, the organization has funded four million meals across India, Africa, and the United States.

Earlier this year, The Sutton hosted a fundraiser to further Jain’s reach. The event was held on the premises and welcomed more than 90 attendants. Buckhead’s Savi Provisions catered the evening with a selection of locally sourced and organic offerings. The social occasion’s soundtrack was provided by a talented Atlanta pianist and a selection of red and white wines served as refreshments for the cause. A silent auction marked the apex of the night, where bids were placed on a wide range of items including a gift bag of Spanx products, chiropractic sessions, and a villa stay in Mexico. By evening’s end, personal donations and proceeds from the auction tallied up to an impressive $53,000 raised for Feed A Billion.

While Ambul Jain’s fundraiser served a global purpose, The Sutton is intent on championing local causes, as well. A recent networking event for Buckhead professionals unfolded on the property this spring. Stephanie Kisierlewicz, of the luxury consignment company “The RealReal” and Nancy Flaherty of “Grace In Paris,” brought a European vibe to the Parisian-themed gathering. The forty-five guests attending enjoyed discussions on closet organization, consignment shopping and selling, and the best boutiques to be found on the side streets of Paris.

The enthusiastic response to these initial endeavors heralds a future of successful events to be held at The Sutton. Whether highlighting far-reaching global concerns or focusing on the needs and passions of local residents, The Sutton will serve as a social space for gatherings large and small. Already in the planning stages are an upcoming Scotch tasting, a cigar rolling seminar, Interior Design workshops, and events that celebrate residents’ love of their pets.

THE SUTTON BUCKHEAD: A New Lease on Luxury in Atlanta

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.

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.

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.
