Westdale and StreetLights Residential Announce First Atlanta Development with Groundbreaking of Aria Village in Sandy Springs

ATLANTA, GA - Westdale, a national real estate investment and management company, and StreetLights Residential, a design focused multifamily and mixed-use developer, recently broke ground on a new mixed-use development in Sandy Springs, Georgia. The development, Aria Village, will be comprised of 30,000 square feet of retail and restaurants along with a five-story residential community, The Alastair. The project is part of Aria, a larger master-planned community by Ashton Woods. Aria Village will be StreetLights’ first development in Georgia since opening its Atlanta office in July 2016.

Located just north of Atlanta and adjacent to the new Mercedes-Benz USA headquarters, Aria Village will host boutique retail, a chef-driven restaurant on the Town Green, and 357 luxury apartment units. Apartments will range in size from 701 to 2,068 square feet and include one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans.

“With the corporate relocation of Mercedes-Benz USA headquarters to Sandy Springs and the continued growth of the area, we believe incoming and existing residents will be attracted to the quality, boutique-style living that StreetLights offers,” said Fred Kay, SVP of Development for StreetLights.

Influenced by English Arts and Crafts architecture, Aria Village will be situated amongst lush greenery and trees, with access to the new Aria hiking trails. The residential community will offer a full suite of amenities inclusive of a luxurious pool deck, co-working spaces, dog wash, two-story fitness facility, and much more. Apartment homes will offer two beautifully designed interior schemes with granite countertops, island seating, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances including gas ranges, and numerous other unique features. Select residences will include screened-in porches and side yards with stoop entries. The first apartment homes are anticipated to be available in the fall of 2019.

“Westdale is excited about the opportunity to team up with SLR and AWH to create a truly unique lifestyle experience in the Sandy Springs community,” said Joe Beard, President and CEO of Westdale.

StreetLights is developing the project with SLR Construction, LLC serving as the general contractor.

Architecture for Aria Village is designed by Looney Ricks Kiss with landscape design by TBG Partners. Interior design will be completed by 5G Studio.

“We’ve designed Aria as a “living symphony” that combines the vibrancy of the city with the serenity of nature,” said Dwayne Hill, President of Ashton Woods Atlanta. “Our architectural design is unique to Atlanta, and works carefully with the slope, crests, and valleys of the land, making way for spectacular views and a unique living experience.” He added “We’re proud to be working with Streetlights on a project so special to us and know our homebuyers will love the food and retail areas within such a short walking-distance from their homes.”

StreetLights Residential was founded as a design-driven, vertically integrated development firm focused on crafting beautiful apartment homes that lift the human spirit. For a full list of StreetLights developments visit streetlightsres.com
