30326: What it lacks in size, it makes up for in prestige.
The list of what comprises this ZIP code can occupy a single paragraph, so let’s get started: Lenox Square, one of the southeast’s prime shopping destinations; Phipps Plaza, a shopping center that’s nearly unparalleled in luxury. The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta, one of the most luxurious hotels/residences in the city; a handful of truly exceptional restaurants that have become institutions; Buckhead Heights, a miniscule enclave that’s as exclusive as it sounds; two MARTA stops (Buckhead and Lenox); and… that’s about it.
In all likelihood, with half its square acreage being shopping malls, you’re not likely to live in 30326. But it’s a safe bet that you will find yourself here very, very often. When it comes to commerce, some would argue that this is Atlanta’s beating heart.
