Building and landscape work continues at a furious pace at the Buckhead Atlanta development.

Local media got a chance to go behind the construction fences at Buckhead Atlanta on Friday to see the hive of activity taking place in the run-up to the opening of its first shops and restaurants in mid-September. Developer OliverMcMillan is spending a whopping $10 million on landscaping for the live/work/play mecca that stands in the heart of Buckhead Village. Workers were busy with landscaping, including the creation of colorful flower beds and the arrival of the first of four 35-foot tall oak trees being planted around the property.

Smaller trees and greenery are already in place at Buckhead Atlanta.
The tree looks like it’s been there for years rather than just freshly planted.
