Paces 325
Style in the Heart of Buckhead

Paces 325 at dusk.
Paces 325, one of Buckhead's newest condominium buildings, offers European styling and luxury at affordable prices. Completed in 2004, Paces 325 has the classic look of a traditional European luxury residence from the outside, but a more contemporary feel inside. Many newer buildings that seem edgy and modern today with glass and steel exteriors will feel dated as the years pass by. Residents young and old can appreciate Paces' architectural style, one that exudes a certain grace that will withstand the test of time.

Located along East Paces Ferry Road (just east of Peachtree Road), Paces 325 has an address that commands respect. Also, while right in the heart of one of Atlanta's most exciting neighborhoods, it is also located enough off the beaten path to allow for the enjoyment of a quiet and peaceful existence that is within walking distance to some of the finest establishments in Atlanta. Capital Grill, Nava, Chops, Pricci, Antica Posta, Anise and Basil's are just a handful of upscale restaurants residents can enjoy without getting in their cars. Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza, home to Atlanta's finest retailers, are both less than five minutes up the street.

While you'll find everything you want and more in the neighborhood today, the winds of change are blowing for the better. The new Whole Foods Market on West Paces Ferry Road features the finest produce and groceries and is the perfect place to sit with friends and share sushi or a smoothie. Early 2006 will bring the groundbreaking of the St. Regis hotel, almost across the street from Whole Foods. The St. Regis will be Atlanta's most upscale hotel property, and will also offer a handful of condominium units rumored to be priced in the $600-$650/SF range.

The interiors offer the highest quality finishes.
Neighborhood boosters have created a community improvement district (CID) for Buckhead Village that has raised community funds for improvements in the area, and also has multiplied the impact of its efforts through the acquisition of matching funds. Many of the CID's programs will have direct benefit to Paces 325, such as the planned traffic calming road improvement project along East Paces Ferry. This project, which is scheduled to begin within two years, will put extended curbs at the five intersections along East Paces Ferry between Peachtree and Piedmont Roads, narrowing car lanes and slowing the flow of traffic. This will not only reduce the flow of non-local traffic, but it will also create a more pedestrian-friendly environment. Eventually, East Paces Ferry will be home to Atlanta's finest upscale retailers, boutiques and restaurants, all in a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood.

Paces 325 offers some of the highest quality finishes available today, including 3-cm granite counter tops in kitchens and baths, solid hardwood cabinets in kitchens and baths, hardwood floors, tray ceilings, Kohler faucets and fixtures, separate glass shower enclosures, sunken tubs and dual-sink vanities in all two-bedroom floor plans. In addition, Paces 325 also offers a unique program of semi-custom finishes and upgrades that are generously paid for through seller incentives.

North-facing homes have panoramic views of the Buckhead skyline while south- facing homes feature spectacular views of downtown. Pool, sundeck, exercise facility and tennis court, all located on the fourth floor of the parking structure, give residents the amenities and feel of their own private club.

Morris and Raper Realtors has exclusive sales for the property and cooperating brokers are welcome. Prices for one-bedroom homes begin around $180,000, and two-bedroom homes start at $300,000.
