So the 227-unit residential development at 755 North played a little fast and loose with the location of downtown in some of its new renderings. The skewed geography does make it look that much more appealing, and at least they didn't pretend it has mountain views. Originally scheduled to be finished in February, Perennial Properties' four-story complex of upscale apartments, just across the Eastside Trail from the Masquerade, is finally ready to start leasing for summer 2014 move-ins.
The interior rendering of a unit shows stainless appliances, clean lines and reasonably high ceilings (9 feet) for an apartment. The website boasts about each unit's vinyl wood plank flooring (find something else to brag about, y'all), granite counter tops and alarm systems. The prices for the flats, which range from $1,130 studios to $2,640 three-bedrooms, are cheaper than Ponce City Market but still way more than you'd pay for an apartment that didn't have 600 feet of frontage on the BeltLine. Depending on the unit's orientation, renters will either have awesome views of the city or some fascinating people-watching opportunities over the trail. Either way, you win. It'll have the sorts of things you'd expect from a new development at this price point: a large pool, fitness center, internet cafe, etc. plus a bocce ball court.
