Other notable area of Brookhaven include Town Brookhaven and Brookhaven Village, located along Dresden Drive. Oglethorpe University is also located in Buckhead.
Many neighborhoods in Brookhaven have seen a huge influx of “tear-down and build new” homes. In 2018, the average price of new construction in the city was in the range of $800,000. This has made it a great bedroom community option to Buckhead. the area around Capital City Country Club is much like Buckhead to the South with stately mansions of old, as well as new construction homes.
Brookhaven is serviced by MARTA with one station on Peachtree Road near Oglethorpe, hence called the Oglethorpe Station. It’s on the Gold line which terminates in Downtown Doraville, and goes South through Buckhead, Midtown Downtown and to the International Airport.

What’s Brookhaven Like?
The city really has two distinct areas….all of Brookhaven…and Buford Highway. It’s here that you will find the second major retail center after Town Brookhaven, Northeast Plaza, which has some 466,000 square feet of retail space. The Buford Highway corridor (2019) still has many aging apartment complexes and it a prime focus of the city to create a commercial district in this area. Additionally, the new Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta campus is located in Brookhaven, on the east side of I-85 at North Druid Hills Road. But there is hardly a neighborhood in Brookhaven that has not seen the “tear down” effect.
