Preleasing Begins at Crescent Howell Mill

Client News

Atlanta, Ga. – Crescent Communities has begun preleasing luxury apartments in the new mixed-use development Howell Mill, just east of Interstate 75 on Howell Mill Road. With residences now available, the 256-unit Crescent Howell Mill is the next step in creating a residential and lifestyle destination convenient to both the Buckhead and Midtown districts. 

“This stretch of Howell Mill Road is growing as a distinctive sub-community within Atlanta,” said Jay Curran, senior vice president of Crescent’s multifamily group. “Crescent Howell Mill will put its residents at the heart of a new retail and culinary area with easy access to everything they want and need in Atlanta, along with on-site conveniences and comforts that define luxury apartment living.”

At the intersection of Howell Mill Road NW and Collier Road in a south Buckhead neighborhood, Crescent Howell Mill offers a direct drive to Midtown and Downtown. Residents can walk to conveniences such as a Publix grocery store, the expansive and social Atlanta Food Truck Park and numerous retailers. They also are less than a mile from an eclectic array of hip dining options, including sit-down dining at Verde Taqueria or Flip Burger.

The apartments serve as the first phase and only residential component of Howell Mill, the aptly-named mixed-use project being developed by Healey Weatherholtz Properties. Phase two of the eight-acre development will feature a collection of chef-driven restaurants and has recently broken ground.

Residents of Crescent Howell Mill will enjoy the apartment community’s open elevated lawn courtyard, saltwater resort-style pool with sun deck, outdoor kitchen with grilling stations and rooftop social deck. For active residents, the community includes a state-of-the-art athletic club; for their pets, the community offers a dog walk park and pet spa and specially-designed fountain where pets can play.

The studios and one- and two-bedroom units’ interiors feature details including granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, expansive walk-in closets and designer light fixtures. Pre-wiring for high speed fiber optic Internet and cable and on-site concierge service are among a robust offering of living conveniences.

“The apartments at Crescent Howell Mill include modern-style luxuries and must-have conveniences. Whether at home or out on the town, residents have all they need in this up-and-coming hot spot on the Howell Mill corridor,” Curran said.

Crescent Howell Mill is Home Innovation NGBS Green Registered, meaning it is designed and built to meet the rigorous criteria of the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) and will be verified to meet the criteria independently by third-party agents of Home Innovation Research Labs.
