Completed in 1947, Briar Hills is the first co-op built in Atlanta.


Briar Hills Historic Condominiums were designed by famed architectural firm Cuttino-Howard & Ellis and are set as the cornerstone of the DeKalb pocket neighborhood known as Briar Hills. The architects created minor differences in every unit, so that each condo has it’s own distinctive personality, ranging from square footage to arrangement of closets and bathrooms. Originally built by Solloway Realty Company in 1947 as a Jewish community, these historic condominiums are unique not only for their noted post-war era architecture, but also for their uniquely different flooplans of 2-bedroom flats and 2- to 3-bedroom townhomes. Briar Hills Historic Condominiums has been included in the Druid Hills Local Historic District since 2001. Though individual units have undergone updating and renovation through the years, The Board of Directors has consistently maintained the exteriors of the complex, from the painted white brick to the original awnings, and the lush grounds to consistent white window treatments.
