Sovereign Featured in Lonny Magazine!

June 15, 2010
 When the Sovereign Buckhead decided it was time to revamp their model home they knew just who to call: designer Lee Kleinhelter.  As the owner of Atlanta’s home-goods store Pieces, as well as a resident owner at the Sovereign, she was eager to put her clever direction into making the condo model radiate  with clean lines and “not too modern and not too traditional” touches. 
Kleinhelter breathed new life into the condo by ripping out the dull-blue carpet and centered her attention on creating depth through textures, accentuating the walls, and energizing the space with a flavorful shade of orange inspired by Hermes.  Each Sovereign condo features strong angles and uniquel nooks and she was successful in making it look anything but an average staged model.  She created a home that fuses the modern and the vintage and together permeates the warmth that every buyer craves.  “I want this home to make you feel great, chic, and super happy” she says, and it seems by the response Sovereign is receiving, she has done just that.

Staging a house to sell isn’t always easy, but Kleinhelter gives these two bits of advice:

  • The first step in preparing to sell is to move everything out.  Once the house is clutter-free, paint everything the same color to visually expand the space. 
  • Lastly, when moving the furniture back, carefully edit and leave only the essentials.  Less is more.  Leave personal mementos in storage, otherwise potential buyers may feel like they are intruding on someone else’s space.

W Residences Atlanta Downtown wins Design Excellence Award

November 11, 2009
W Residences Atlanta Downtown won the Atlanta Downtown Design Excellence Award November 10th, which honors Downtown businesses for their design innovations during this past year.

The award winners are determined by a panel of judges including design, planning, and development experts, and, just as important, the public. Public opinion is one of the factors that the judges consider in selecting the winners. 

Design Excellence VideoBegun by developer Barry Real Estate Companies in 2005 with the intention of bringing an iconic building to the $2 billion Allen Plaza neighborhood on the edge of Centennial Olympic Park, the W Atlanta Downtown is designed by internationally acclaimed, New Haven-Connecticut-based architects Pickard Chilton Architects (designers of 1180 Peachtree and The Pinnacle in Buckhead).

Interiors are by renowned Toronto-based BurdiFilek. The project was under construction and substantially completed throughout 2009, with its doors officially opened to the public in January 2009.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer breathtaking views of a vibrant city. One lingering gaze and you’ll see how 10-foot ceilings give acclaimed designer BurdiFilek® more room to craft an awe-inspiring interior. 

If that’s not enough (and it never is) 14-foot wide balcony provides ample opportunity for private outdoor entertainment, a moment of relaxation or just a closer look at the city’s infinite detail.


Residential amenities include: Crestron and Lutron automation systems, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, Alno cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances and Bang & Olufsen audio/visual systems. The 28-floor tower features 237 guest rooms, 74 private condos, a rooftop helipad, and the 3,500-squarefoot Bliss Spa. Prices at W Atlanta Residences – which features just 74 homes – now start in the mid $200s.
