Olmsted Chamblee Wins at ULI Atlanta's Awards for Excellence
Olmsted Chamblee was awarded for Excellence in Housing Development at Urban Land Institute (ULI) Atlanta’s 24th Annual Awards for Excellence Program. Each year, the organization recognizes outstanding real estate development projects and initiatives that exemplify ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and creating sustaining thriving communities. From more than 35 entries, Olmsted was chosen as one of only six winners.
Located within walking distance to the Chamblee MARTA station, Olmsted Chamblee reimagines what it means to have a walkable urban, residential experience in the Atlanta region. With careful attention to architecture and interior design, the collection of distinct buildings creates an eclectic and urban feel to the streetscape. Olmsted offers several residence options, including one, two, and three-bedroom apartments and for-rent townhomes, offering 15 floor plans with a total of 283 units. Due to its successful private and public partnership with the City of Chamblee Development Authority, Olmsted has become a catalyst for economic growth in an area known for industrial warehouses. The Olmsted’s location provides easy access to Chamblee’s renowned antique shops, parks and trails, shopping, and dining, with proximity to Perimeter, Brookhaven, and Buckhead.
“Rather than settling for a monolithic, homogeneous block, the design team created multiple distinct buildings forming the type of urbanism that delights and surprises residents, encouraging a sense of place.” - Brett Oliver, Director of Development at CF Real Estate Services
“From its welcoming lobby to the inventive working spaces, this project has re-imagined the possibilities and raised the standards for thoughtful, high-quality rental housing. Before this project and the other developments nearby, Chamblee was an overlooked ITP community. This project team artfully created a public/private place where hip and cool people want to live, work and play.” - Yonina Gray, Director of Business Development at Reinvestment Fund and Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership
