In the lap of luxury

Homes in the 282-unit community are equipped with Nest thermostats, electronic door locks, gigabit internet access and more.


Atlanta-based Catalyst Development Partners recently opened Helios Apartments, a 282-unit community, also in Atlanta.

“Helios Apartments evolved out of a desire to provide in-town residents with ultra-high-end amenities and technological perks that rise above the norm of typical apartment living,” said Rob Meyer, principal at Catalyst.

“The community has a very cool edge to the design, not typical, and not really seen anywhere else in Atlanta.”

Helios, managed by Greystar Real Estate Partners, offers one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment homes with finishes that include kitchens with table-sized islands and quartz counters, stainless steel appliances, walk-in showers, Nest thermostats, electronic door locks, front loading washers and dryers and separate beverage refrigerators.

All units also feature access to a choice of technology providers including Xfinity Gigabit, Google Fiber and AT&T.

Amenities include multi-level lounge areas with games and media options, multiple indoor-outdoor social areas including the top floor SkyLounge, co-working spaces, saltwater pool, outdoor fireplace, doggy spa, bicycle maintenance and storage, and an outdoor kitchen with traditional grill, kamado smoker, and wood-fired pizza oven.

The property’s customized two-story fitness center offers a comprehensive training facility with weights, cardio, yoga and spin room, rotating rock wall, virtual fitness training, and group classes.

Helios offers a package and parcel concierge and dry cleaning, onsite dedicated ZipCars, and air-conditioned pick-up/drop-off areas for Uber and Lyft, EV charging stations, and a bark park on site.

Catalyst is developing the Helios project with capital partner, Bluerock Residential Growth REIT.
