Well, Buckhead covers a lot of territory so it has tons of neighborhoods.

The Village is in NPU-B, which covers most of central Buckhead.

For-sale Residential: Town urbanist Lew Oliver, builder Monte Hewett Homes and Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International have teamed up to design, build and sell the single-family homes at Avalon. The team has gathered a waiting list of more than 600 prospective homebuyers for the 101 homes to be built. Initial concepts for the homes are available by contacting Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International. The first peek of model homes will be available in June 2014, and in October 2014 the first resident will move in.


Luxury Rental Homes: 250 luxury rental homes will be built above the Phase I retail, and are as highly sought after as the single-family offering. The first units will be available for occupancy in January 2015.


Office Leasing: More than 50 percent of the office-over-retail has been leased. New tenants include Wakefield Beasley and Associates and Integrated Care Management. In addition, there has been tremendous interest in the 750,000 square feet of build-to-suit space planned in Phase II from employers seeking to provide an unparalleled work environment for their associates, while future-proofing their operations with Avalon's fiber-to-the-premises technology. Greenstone Properties is leasing the Phase I office over retail space, and will develop and lease the Phase II mid-rise office buildings.

COL is low and salary for jobs are relatively high. If there are not enough super rich people to support these stores, there are plenty of locals with extra money to occasionally splurge on these items.

The growing sector for jobs here is in the service sector with low or minimum wage jobs, increasing in great numbers, while there are very few well-paying professional jobs in comparison. As this continues to become a place that offers mostly minimum wage jobs, there isn't going to be a large number of people who will be able to afford to shop there at this rate as time goes on.

That's not to say there aren't people who live here with lots of money. There definitely are, especially in Buckhead, but they are by no stretch the average Atlantan.

Regarding the Hermes store at Buckhead Atlanta, it will not be a flagship store as the company's New York, Beverly Hills, and soon-to-be Miami flagships are 12,000 sf. This store is much smaller at 4,100 sf, but it is significantly larger than most of their American stores and their previous store at Lenox.

Atlanta Magazine says there are a couple of restaurants coming in named The Southern Gentleman and Gypsy Kitchen. Apparently they will be run by the same people who own Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails and Osteria Cibo Rustico.

When I was growing up (1970s-80s), Buckhead was only the area directly around the soon-to-be "Buckhead Atlanta". It was really just that little retail area, the 5 points intersection where the real buck's head once hung. My father, who grew up there, rejected the idea that the residential areas nearby should be called Buckhead. . . They each had their own names: Peachtree Heights West, Peachtree Heights East, Garden Hills. . . .Even when I was a kid, the Lenox area was just. . .well, Lenox. It wasn't part of Buckhead. I guess that makes me old!

The "Buckhead Atlanta" name makes no sense to me/is horrible, but I bet they keep it. . .
