An unusual 22-story condominium building inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Fallingwater received unanimous approval by Neighborhood Planning Unit-B at its July 7 meeting.

Notably, 2520 Peachtree will be Buckhead’s first planned condo tower since the end of the recession as developers have embraced the new luxury apartment building craze that has swept the city.

The new condo, located just north of Peachtree Battle Shopping Center, will have three units per floor for a total of 65 units. The large, staggered outdoor balconies give the tower a waterfall type appearance as seen in the rendering released by developer JPX Works.

JPX Works, the company behind the mixed-used apartment and retail development called Inman Quarter in Inman Park, has called the condos “villas in the sky.” The building will sit atop a two-story parking garage and will also have a pool and other amenities.

The site of the new development, near the intersection of Lindbergh and Peachtree roads, is currently home to a condo building built in the 1950s, which will be demolished.

2520 Peachtree now goes to the Atlanta Zoning Board of Review before getting final approval from the city council.
