Luxury apartment complex focused on ‘health and wellness’ opens in DeKalb

A swanky new apartment complex featuring more than 300 units and a focus on “health and wellness design” is now open in DeKalb County.

The first move-ins are taking place this month at Oleander, a community located in southern Brookhaven near the Briarcliff area. The complex markets itself as a luxury space with an emphasis on healthy living.

“The color palette and textiles are designed to offer a refreshing and relaxing environment for residents, and the outdoor spaces will include gardens, walkways and courtyards to complete the comprehensive wellness experience,” the complex said in a statement.

The 343 apartments range in size from 580 square feet to 1,429 square feet, and include studios as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom units, a spokeswoman for Oleander said.

Monthly rent ranges from $1,426 to $2,829, depending on the availability of specific units. (That’s higher than the median rent in Brookhaven and DeKalb County, which come in at $1,255 and $1,062, respectively, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates.)

The five-story complex is located next to the Emory Sports Medicine Complex just south of I-85 and off Executive Park Drive, a corridor that has attracted several new housing developments in recent years.

It was designed by Mary Cook, the founder and president of a commercial interior design firm based in Chicago, and developed by Toll Brothers Apartment Living. According to its website, Oleander comes with a number of amenities for its residents, including a full fitness club; outdoor yoga lawn; "boutique pool"; private pet park; courtyards with TV lounges and "Zen water features; indoor lounge and gaming area.

“Intentionality and consideration are built into each nook, common area and apartment home, balancing sophistication and comfort with both look and feel,” the website states.
