Berkadia: Almost 150,000 apartments in Atlanta’s pipeline 

by John Yellig

It’s no secret that there is a lot of apartment development going on around Atlanta, but a recent study by Berkadia puts a stunning number on just how active the sector has been. 

There were 404 projects representing exactly 147,881 new apartment units in some stage of the development process — lease-up, construction, planned or proposed — at the end of the fourth quarter of 2022, according to the commercial real estate firm’s most recent Construction Pipeline Report. 

The bulk of the apartments, 115,202, are considered prospective, meaning they have been proposed by developers but not yet approved by local authorities and might never come to fruition. Nevertheless, projects representing 9,737 units are already welcoming tenants, while projects with 17,951 units are underway, and 49,409 apartments have made it through the permitting process. 

Berkadia splits the Atlanta market into two buckets: urban and suburban. A look at the numbers indicates that apartments in Atlanta are furthest along, as urban lease-up and under construction units top their suburban counterparts, while the opposite is true for the planned and prospective categories.
