The number of apartments in Buckhead has increased by more than 100 percent over the past 3 ½ years, according to the Buckhead Coalition.

The coalition says more than 13,190 new apartments have been built or announced since January 2012, when the organization started keeping a roster of new apartment buildings planned for Buckhead after the end of the Great Recession. When the coalition started its list, there were 12,704 apartments in the community, the nonprofit said in a press release.

The coalition says the growth in the number of apartments shows “the changed profile of Buckhead residents to the Millennials who want this flexibility to go with the flow, with the prediction many will walk to work and ride bikes for surrounding amenities.”
