Buckhead is a substantially wealthy northern district of Atlanta located in Fulton County, Georgia. Since the 1950’s, this region has been considered an area of extraordinary wealth. Current use of the term “Buckhead” defines the district as the “V” area between Interstate 85 and Interstate 75. Primarily a commercial and financial center, much of central Buckhead is comprised of high-rise developments—condominiums, office buildings and hotels. The district’s residential neighborhoods, which can be found throughout heavily wooded forests and hills, surround its urban center. Those who enjoy the urban feel of living in a dense city can find themselves at home in Buckhead.

Life In Buckhead

These premier, upscale shopping centers are prime destinations for those who want to experience the exciting shopping, dining and entertainment Buckhead has to offer. As of 2014, Buckhead became the home to many more exclusive high-end boutiques, restaurants, condos and offices with the completion of Buckhead Atlanta, a 6 city block project spearheaded by Oliver McMillan Inc, a national boutique real estate firm. The district also hosts many community events and festivals open for everyone.
