The Wakefield, 2724 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, GA 30305

The Wakefield is a luxury cooperative located on the Northwest corner of Peachtree Road and West Wesley Road.  It is generally regarded as Buckhead’s must exclusive residential highrise.  It is home to just 24 residents and is a cooperative.  The property offers world-class design and quality.  Amenities and building systems are consistent with properties several times its size.

The average size residence at The Wakefield is about 4,500 square feet. Residences range in size from about 1,000 square feet to about 6,700 square feet.  This measurement is an approximation of enclosed usable area. The building averages just 2 residences per floor for its 12 floors.

In the mid 1990s, Brookwood Group, as both designer and development manager for the George Heery, Sr. family, broke ground on the highest quality high-rise multi-family project built to date in Atlanta.  The building permit for The Wakefield was the first private sector high rise building permit issued within the City of Atlanta in over two years at the time it was issued and the building was sold out shortly after its completion.

It is readily evident today to those in the real estate development field that The Wakefield set in motion the raising of design and construction quality standards of mid to high rise multi-family housing projects. The Wakefield also sparked the acceptance in the Atlanta market of the idea that very high quality homes could be located in high rise structures with settings that allowed easier access to work, shopping, places of worship and community activities.

All Agreements to purchase at the Wakefield are contingent on board approval.
