Grand opening for 05 Buckhead apartments

Coro Realty Advisors held the grand opening May 7 for its 05 Buckhead, which the company conceived as the first “white glove” rental apartment building in Atlanta.

The 155-unit high-rise at 3242 Peachtree Road, just south of Piedmont road,caters to residents seeking 24/7 services, a spacious living environment and many amenities. Leasing began in early February.

Patti Pearlberg, vice president and asset manager of Atlanta-based Coro Realty, said the 05 Buckhead concept was more than two years in the development phase.

“We wanted this residential project to set the benchmark for luxury rental communities in Atlanta, while addressing the desires of an affluent rental market,” she said.

Residents began moving into the 20-story building in April as the amenities and common areas were nearing completion.

Offering rental residences at $2 per square foot or better, 05 Buckhead provides on-site management, concierge services around the clock, limited key-card access to the garage, building and individual floors, and online access to management services, Pearlberg said. “It is our goal to continue to raise the bar for luxury rentals in Atlanta.”

Studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are available, as well as two-story penthouse residences, with rent beginning at $1,300 per month.

UPS to teach safety to teen drivers

The UPS Foundation, which is based in Sandy Springs, has given a three-year, $1.5 million grant to Boys & Girls Clubs of America to teach safe driving techniques.

UPS has more than 100,000 drivers who log more than 2.5 billion miles a year. They average more than 1 million miles driven per accident.

Based on the same safety training used with UPS drivers, the UPS Road Code program will help teens learn safe driving. It will be taught to about 1,200 teens this year in 10 U.S. cities, including Atlanta.

UPS Road Code provides teens with four sessions of classroom-based instruction and time in computerized driving simulators. To learn more about UPS Road Code, visit www.ups.com/roadcode.
