High-end condo building on Peachtree tries to offload last million-dollar units

It’s been more than two years since the designs for One Museum Place, across Peachtree Street from the High Museum, were revealed.

Now, work is moving into its final stages as the high-end condo building is readied for its first tenants to arrive. According to an email blast by the sales team, the first residents will be moving in to their (at least) million-dollar homes starting in January.

Designed by locally based, nationally recognized Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects, the building has a modern design bent, with bold, boxy shapes and unique fenestration patterns that make each unit distinct.

But the question remains whether the combination of killer Midtown location and distinctive high-end architecture will be able to quickly fill the building.

As it stands, nearly 40 percent of the 45 residences are still available. With prices rising from $1 million to more than $3 million, the building definitely isn’t for everyone.

More luxury condo buildings up the road in Buckhead, including Emerson and the Charles, are expected to start construction soon. Meanwhile in Midtown, the pricey 98 Fourteenth Street (above) — pitched as Atlanta’s second-tallest building — is dependent on significant pre-sales before launching.

Are there enough wealthy cosmopolitan dwellers to fill the units in Atlanta?
