Life in a Masterpiece
by Amanda K. Brown

For owners of one of the much-coveted spaces at the new Novare Group high-rise condominium Gallery, life will literally be a work of art. From the paintings, photographs, ceramics and sculptures decking the walls of the lobby to the sleek elegance of the Kohler faucets in the bathrooms, a pleasing aesthetic perpetuates itself constantly throughout the development.

Situated at 2795 Peachtree Rd. in Atlanta's Buckhead community, the 203-unit, 27-story condominium represents a collaboration between several well-known Atlanta firms: Novare Group developers; Coro Realty Advisors, LLC; Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart architects; and residential designer William T. Baker. With both classic and contemporary elements incorporated into its architecture, Gallery appeals to a broad range of lifestyles, from young professionals looking to make their first investment in a home to older couples wanting to relocate to an exciting, new "empty nest."

"Gallery gives our homeowners a prestigious address at attainable price points, and it also offers them the convenience of high-rise living without having to give up the design, space and privacy they have to come to expect," says Frank Reese, the Novare Group's lead developer for Gallery. "We have tried to keep this balance in mind through the design of every aspect of the project, from unit layouts to finishes and amenities."

Averaging more than 1,700 square feet in size, units will include the floor-to-ceiling glass windows for which the Novare Group is known, along with 10-foot ceilings, open floor plans, traditional foyers, expansive balconies and expanded hardwood and ceramic flooring. Furniture-quality cabinetry, granite countertops and Kohler fixtures accent bathrooms and kitchens, and the state-of-the-art stainless steel KitchenAid appliances add both to the unit's aestheti c and functionality. To "future proof" the residences, condominiums will also come pre-wired for ultra-high-speed Internet service and surround sound.
Each unit has floor to ceiling windows.

To elevate Gallery's status from a house to a home, a bevy of amenities will be available outside the residences as well. The role of the 24-hour concierge will be very much the same as it would be in a hotel, from procuring tickets to events to arranging for a limo to the airport. For relaxation and gatherings with friends, residents will enjoy the landscaped amenity deck and the resort-style pool deck, complete with an outdoor fireplace, grilling area and wireless Internet access. Also, a club room on the first floor will feature a library/lounge area and another club room on the fourth floor is sure to be social central with its theater area, complete with surround sound and plasma-screen, hi-definition TV, free, high-speed Internet-connected computer terminals, bar area and catering kitchen.

Gallery will be located within walking distance to many of Buckhead's finest dining, shopping and entertainment options, but for a little more of a work out, a full fitness center includes state-of-the-art exercise equipment such as treadmills and elliptical machines, and, to make the miles go by more quickly, plasma screens are set up for viewing TV and DVDs, or for listening to CDs. Residents who often entertain overnight or out-of-town guests will appreciate the three guest suites available at Gallery. Pre-assigned spaces in the parking garage provide convenience as well.

Condominiums at Gallery price from the $300,000s to the $800,000s, and penthouse homes are also available. Residents can expect to be able to move into their new homes in late 2007.
