Streets of Buckhead enhances collection of luxury retailers
The Streets of Buckhead, a world-class luxury destination that combines international boutiques, fine dining and exclusive residences in a streetscape setting welcomes upscale clothiers Brioni, Leggiardo and Shirts & Co by Domenico Vacca.
Ben Carter, founder and chairman of Ben Carter Properties, is creating the region's premier luxury shopping experience in the heart of Atlanta's affluent Buckhead community. The development already boasts an exclusive line-up of merchants that includes Hermès, Bottega Veneta, Oscar de la Renta, John Lobb, Loro Piana, Van Cleef & Arpels and many others.
The Streets of Buckhead, which will feature more than 500,000-square feet of retail and restaurant space, is resurrecting the site of the original Buckhead Village in Atlanta, which decades ago featured a town square with local merchants and residences.
Much like the original, The Streets of Buckhead experience extends beyond the retailers to include restaurants and luxury residential units; in addition to luxury boutiques, Ben Carter Properties projects 14 fine-dining restaurants (including New York mainstays Japonais, Le Colonial and La Goulue) and several hundred luxury high-rise residences.
“Like New York's Madison Avenue, The Streets of Buckhead will be a preferred destination for affluent consumers from around the country seeking the most exclusive shopping and dining experience possible. However, The Streets of Buckhead is truly distinguished by its unsurpassed amenities and services in a street-level, open-air environment that can't be found anywhere else in the Southeast,” said Carter. “The commitment of partners like Brioni, Leggiardo, and Shirts & Co. by Domenico Vacca is truly a testament to the experience we're creating for area residents and visitors alike at The Streets of Buckhead.”
The architecture for the retail streetscapes and high-rises employs the use of stately columns and grand porticos, reflective of Neo-classical style of architecture. Other parts of the development employ touches similar to the industrial-era buildings of New York's Soho district, with iron detailing and a great use of glass. The design styles mesh to create a rich, historically inspired architectural framework, the perfect backdrop for the luxury boutiques and restaurants at The Streets of Buckhead.
The most recent additions to The Streets of Buckhead include:
Brioni – An Italian luxury brand founded in 1945, Brioni is named after one of the most elegant resorts on the Adriatic coast. Its custom tailoring was soon a favorite of Europe's aristocracy, and Brioni quickly became the first true ambassador of men's fashion in the world in the 1950s, when movie celebrities like Clark Gable, Gary Cooper and Rock Hudson began wearing Brioni suits.
Brioni has remained a reference point for luxury and quality tailoring to this day. Each Brioni garment takes at least 24 hours of work by more than 400 master tailors (and a total of 1,500 employees working in eight facilities), manufacturing the Formale, Donna and Leisurewear lines. Recognized around the world as one of the premier luxury brands, Brioni will serve customers in a 1,874-square-foot store at The Streets of Buckhead.
