The Brookwood Quietly Rises

Brookwood

The Brookwood has been quietly rising on Peachtree Street for quite some time. The penthouse level is almost complete in the Peachtree Tower portion of the project, but for the most part the building is topped out. There hasn’t really been much press on the project, but I do know the developer decided to wait to begin the sales process until the building was well underway – It’s beyond underway.

Located on Peachtree Street between 28th Street and Palisades, The Brookwood exemplifies the best in transitional design and five-star hotel type amenities and service while reflecting the refinement and ambiance of the neighborhood for which it is named.

Residency at The Brookwood offers the convenience and blueprint for modern living just steps from the pulse of Atlanta — from fine dining to shopping, to the city’s art and cultural hubs.

The Brookwood

The Brookwood’s architecture blends with the surrounding neighborhood — an area of 1920’s and 30’s brick and stone buildings and eclectic homes.  The facade incorporates red brick above a cast-stone base in the tradition of Georgian style architecture.  Cornices and other details create a strong expression of base, middle and top which recalls period buildings in a contemporary manner.  Broad bays at the base of The Brookwood are designed to accommodate retail shops, and provide opportunities for signage, awnings and other pedestrian inviting elements.

Considerate of the environment both indoors and outdoors, The Brookwood will be a sustainable building, adhering to current standards as defined by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

Residences: 
With many choices in floor plans, The Brookwood’s two, three and four bedroom homes define new urban living.  The homes are designed to maximize livable space and to take full advantage of the floor to ceiling windows, views and natural light.  The effect is spacious, creating a sense of connection between the inside and the outside.

At 20 stories, The Brookwood will offer 219 homes ranging in size from 1,200 to 2,900 square feet, as well as a selection of signature penthouse residences. Prices are going to start around $500,000 to over $1,000,000. No surprise there.

Architects: 

Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, with additional offices in Charlotte, NC, Tampa, FL, the Republic of Singapore, Dubai, U.A.E., Beijing and Shanghai, China. Renowned for their design services in Architecture, Master Planning and Landscape Architecture, their widely acclaimed solutions reflect their ability to creatively respond to the unique objectives of each project.

Interior Designers: 

Each home is uniquely designed to maximize the living space and take advantage of natural light.  Sight lines are a key consideration so that most homes offer a direct view from the point of entry to the windows which visually links the interior to the exterior. The  floor plans incorporate the core space for living, dining and cooking with all other spaces radiating from this central focus.  These key areas constitute the hub of the home and are intentionally designed as zones rather than rooms to provide expanded space.  This ‘radius’ approach to the architecture eliminates wasted hallway space and jogs in walls providing a visually clean and inviting space.

Residents will have a choice of a variety of interior design options from two world-class firms: Cecconi Simone of Toronto, Ontario, and John Oetgen of Atlanta.

Cecconi Simone has created two distinct design options for owners at The Brookwood—each with its own elegant combination of textures and tones. The firm is also responsible for the unique, spacious floor plans in all of the residences.

The firm practices the whole design philosophy:  the belief that a cross pollination of design experience leads to a deeper understanding of how people lead their lives and the design needs that arise from those lifestyles.

Over the past 23 years, Cecconi Simone has distinguished itself with an ability to generate creative interior design solutions. The firm has produced award-winning interiors for clients in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Middle East—and is recognized internationally for its sophisticated, contemporary designs.

John Oetgen’s work has been recognized throughout the U.S. with commissions in leading homes in Atlanta, New York City, Washington DC, as well as Telluride, CO Highlands, NC, St. Simons, GA, and other destinations.

He established Oetgen Design in 1977 and has been named one of the 100 most influential designers in America by House Beautiful in their 100th anniversary issue in November 1996 and each succeeding year.  His work has appeared in numerous magazines and has been featured on many popular television design shows.

At The Brookwood, Oetgen will offer residents two additional interior design options celebrating Atlanta’s warm and gracious lifestyle.
