As the working world reemerges from its COVID- 19 cocoon, Transwestern Real Estate Services has unveiled sleek new regional headquarters on the top two floors of Atlanta Financial Center, which is the former home of City Club of Buckhead. The firm teamed up with designers from Cooper Carry to reimagine a next-gen workplace that sparks connection and collaboration through a unique floor plan featuring glass office walls and a greenhouse-like amenity hub with floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive cityscape views.
Just in time for the holidays, Veronica Beard is opening its first Atlanta boutique at Buckhead Village, rocking cool-girl vibes with such on-trend must-haves as the brown Miller Leather Dickey Jacket ($1,295), shearlinglined Daxi Clog Bootie ($495) and oversized cable-knit Collina Sweater Vest ($350). Making a style statement with feminine silhouettes tailored for the real world, the American ready-to-wear brand was founded in 2010 by sisters- in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard, whose single rack of dickey jackets has since expanded into a lifestyle collection with 16 U.S. store locations. The label further empowers women through the #VBGivesBack initiative.
