These communities put you in the center of vibrant and trendy neighborhoods filled with premium shops and restaurants and world-renown arts and culture institutions.

Expect to find custom paint colors, art installations, designer light fixtures, and floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views. Infinity pools with chic entertaining areas, elegant resident clubs, and state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness centers are just a few of the luxury features you’ll find in Atlanta’s luxury apartment buildings.

We cover five luxury Atlanta apartment communities that offer premium urban living experiences in unbeatable locations. All of our picks have a 75 and above (out of 100) walk score. So ditch your car (or not) and imagine creating your ideal urban lifestyle.

Luxury Atlanta Apartments and Lofts

The easiest way to approach apartment hunting in Atlanta is by neighborhood. Atlanta’s best luxury apartments and lofts are located in the city’s most notable neighborhoods, including Downtown, Midtown, Old Fourth Ward, and Buckhead.

There is certainly no shortage of apartment communities in Atlanta and its surrounding suburbs. However, rent can easily exceed $2,500 per month for luxury apartments that offer top-tier amenities in highly desirable locations.  

North and Line

The North and Line Atlanta luxury apartment community, established in 2018, is an eight-story building with 228 apartments ranging from 640 sq ft to 1,602 sq ft. You’ll find North and Line located in the Old Fourth Ward Neighborhood, often abbreviated O4W, on the Eastside of Atlanta. 

There are so many cultural and culinary delights in the O4W neighborhood it’s hard to know where to begin. Renting a luxury apartment here will put you steps from two of the area’s most notable attractions: Ponce City Market, housed in the former Sears and Roebuck building, and the 17-acre historic Fourth Ward Park. 

If you love hiking or biking, living in North and Line is a great choice. You’ll have easy access to a favorite outdoor destination and the 22-mile Atlanta Beltline—a multi-use trail system first envisioned by a Georgia Tech student who saw a way to transform a historic railway corridor.
