Oakland Park is the Nucleus of Emerging Area Condo community on Memorial Drive joins Cabbagetown, Grant Park and Oakland Cemetery

Oakland Park’s ideal location is perfect for new condo shoppers looking to live in the center of Atlanta's exciting urban revitalization district along Memorial Drive. Situated between Cabbagetown and Grant Park and directly across the street from Oakland Cemetery, Oakland Park not only refers to the condo community itself but to the community as a whole for many. Oakland Park, the first multi-family housing project in Atlanta to receive LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, bridges the gap between several established communities and provides residents with the opportunity to walk to premier shopping, dining or entertainment venues. As gas prices rise and concern about the environmental threats of driving increase, residents of Oakland Park can rest easy knowing that they can experience it all close to home.

“Oakland Park is defining this emerging area. Oakland Park is growing in popularity for residents because its central location ties Oakland Cemetery, Cabbagetown and Grant Park together,” said Allan Altman, Sales Associate at Oakland Park. “Whether looking for that perfect meal or activity, residents of Oakland Park will enjoy the luxury of having the best Atlanta has to offer within walking distance.”

For those who enjoy good food, fine dining can be found for every meal less than a mile from Oakland Park. Residents will enjoy close proximity to award-winning restaurants such as Ria’s Bluebird, Agave, Redfish, Carrol Street Café, Six Feet Under and much more. Other nearby Atlanta attractions include Zoo Atlanta, the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum, and The King Center. Outdoor activities including sports, picnics and walks can be enjoyed at nearby Grant Park, which consist of 131-acres of green space. Historic Oakland Cemetery also offers unique opportunities with several events offered throughout the year.

Best of all, residents of Oakland Park never have to leave the building to enjoy two of Atlanta’s most well-known establishments. Popular eatery Stella Neighborhood Trattoria and well-respected Foxgloves and Ivy are just an elevator ride away. Stella Neighborhood Trattoria is the newest creation from award-winning chef Rich Chey and features an Italian-inspired menu. Foxgloves and Ivy, originally located in the Virginia Highlands, has recently moved to Oakland Park and is the only American Institute of Floral Designers Accredited Design florist in Atlanta.

The six-story Oakland Park building is remarkable because of the “forever views” of the Atlanta skyline that can be seen across Oakland Cemetery, and because of the care taken by developers to create an environmentally friendly building. The developers, Melaver, Inc. and Urban Realty Partners, made sound decisions that resulted in a more efficient construction site, with very little waste going to the landfill, and in a high performance building that will use less energy over time. Bamboo floors, oversized, operable, low-emittance windows, eco-friendly tile and paint, high-performance plumbing fixtures and energy efficient appliances are the interior hallmarks of Oakland Park, which features 65 one and two bedroom residences and 6,400 square feet of street-front retail.
