Three-dimensional depictions of the One Museum Place condo project have emerged, lending a true idea of what the High Museum's across-the-street neighbor will soon look like. AtlantaSKYrise blog posts architectural models of the John Weiland development, which is set to replace a weedy lot that's long been a wart on Peachtree Street's face in Midtown. Eleven of the complex's 24 units have already been reserved, including a gigantic combo unit with more than 5,000 square feet and a $3.7 million price tag, the blog reports.
If the product stays true to the models, we can expect a rather restrained collection of five-story buildings girded by trees and a wide sidewalk. It's a far cry from the gleaming, two-tower project (with its own art museum) once planned for this site, but it's what the market is permitting.
Wieland is billing the project as "an experience that only a select few Atlantans will ever know," and that exclusivity comes with a premium price. The cheapest listing we've found is in the $1 million range (a two-bedroom, three-bathroom unit with about 2,200 square feet). Wieland, a home developer of four decades in metro Atlanta, is shifting his focus from the suburbs to walkable intown communities such as Midtown and Old Fourth Ward, where his company's vision for a townhome project recently caused a stink with some neighbors. He's controlled the One Museum Place land for nine years.
