If you're searching for a newish condo with secure parking, hardwood floors and walk-in closets, you won't have to look far in Atlanta these days. In some neighborhoods, you can't throw a rock without hitting a "luxury" condo. Grant Park is not one of those areas. It hasn't contracted the full-blown case of condomania that infects 'hoods like Midtown and Inman Park, which makes a property like this 2,163-square-foot Grant Park condo rather interesting. This eight-year-old, two-bedroom unit is situated directly across from the entrance to the neighborhood's namesake park, nestled amongst adorable single-family homes sporting those signature sunburst house numbers. Its proximity to Zoo Atlanta makes it the ideal digs for a serious panda enthusiast who wants to check in on Lun Lun and her crew daily. For $419,000, it offers the aforementioned amenities as well as an "enormous" master bedroom, a private patio and a chef's kitchen with stainless appliances. Similar units in the building have sold for less than $250,000, but those sales were in 2010 and 2011, and it's a different world now.
