The Shops Buckhead Atlanta has a new leasing team (JLL) that plans to make some lifestyle changes to the center soon. 
Since the opening of the haute shopping center back in 2014, more than 3,400 new residences and 325,000 square feet of office space have moved to the neighborhood. JLL is responsible for high-profile developments such as Underground Atlanta, The battery at Suntrust Park, and the overhaul of South Downtown Atlanta. 

Moving forward, JLL’s leasing goals will be to “give a nod to the area’s roots as Buckhead’s town center and its storied history as a nightlife destination,” according to a press release.

The leasing team will make an effort to embrace “a broader view” taking on a lifestyle approach to the center. According to the JLL team, they are seeking opportunities “for more of life’s little luxuries, such as enjoying time with friends on an outdoor patio, the experience of design, and discovery of what’s new and fresh.”

Coleman Morris, JLL’s director of retail agency leasing, described Buckhead village as “a dynamic ecosystem where you can walk to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, shop heritage brands, and have a burger at Shake Shack, or meet friends at the St. Regis and have dinner at Le Bilboquet.” 

“Our goal with this evolution is to further immerse the six blocks within the everyday lives of its neighbors,” Morris continued. “We’re building from a great base and the next iteration will naturally unfold into something fun, useful, approachable, and quintessentially Buckhead.”

While specific plans have not been reassessed yet, we will continue to update you all as more information is released!
