A new mixed-use development brings sophisticated swagger to the neighborhood while preserving its history

Developer Mill Creek Residential has already brought its projects to Midtown, Sandy Springs and Vinings, with two in the works in Buckhead. Now construction is underway for a new mixed-use community in Reynoldstown: Modera by Mill Creek Reynoldstown.
The development will encompass 320 apartments and more than 18,000 square feet of retail space. In addition to 24 surface spaces throughout the property, residents will have access to a six-story parking deck. With the trendy Larkin on Memorial development located nearby, Modera Reynoldstown offers an amenity Atlantans have come to cherish: walkability. “Reynoldstown already benefits from an amazing residential community and quick access to Atlanta’s downtown and Midtown employment centers,” says Mike Greene, Mill Creek’s vice president of development. “With the Atlanta Dairies, Madison Yards and the BeltLine projects, those intersections are transitioning to host more retail and entertainment-centric destinations. This neighborhood is quickly becoming one of Atlanta’s most desirable.”
The apartments feature quartz countertops, large windows, vinyl plank flooring, backlit bathroom mirrors and, in select units, spacious rooftop terraces. A co-working lounge, package concierge and coffee bar are on the first floor; the second floor has a fitness studio, yoga room and spin mezzanine.
One of the more unusual elements is a hidden speakeasy that has a wet bar, private balcony and an independent music system, and will be ideal for hosting small or private gatherings. Residents will also have access to a central courtyard with a bar made from a repurposed shipping container.
