Aria is one of the biggest new developments in Sandy Springs, constructed in the past five years (and still partly underway) on three separate pieces of the former Glenridge family estate and farms. It consists of hundreds of townhomes, single-family detached houses and condos, all built in the Arts and Crafts style of 1800s England, with an air of medieval manor houses. Pools and clubhouses are standard amenities.
The three sections have distinctive atmospheres. Aria North, on the former Glenridge Hall summer-home estate, is atop a wooded hill, with some great views and a roughly 12-acre public park under construction. Aria Village is a denser, mixed-use site — including some businesses and an apartment building erected by a different developer — with a prestigious location next door to Mercedes-Benz USA’s North American headquarters. (UPS and Inspire Brands are among other major corporations whose headquarters are Aria neighbors.) Aria West is more of a traditional subdivision built on cul-de-sacs.
