Touted by the listing agent as a "Spectacular condo!", this one-bedroom, one-bathroom, no-frills unit at the William Oliver building could appeal to buyers on a budget who are bullish on downtown. And, in this case, it would help if such buyers don’t own a car. The location is at the doorstep of Woodruff Park, within sniffing distance of Broad Street eateries (and McDonald’s), plus hotspots like Sidebar, Sweet Georgia Juke Joint, and the Five Points MARTA Station, all lending to the off-the-charts Walk Score of 98. With 591 square feet, the condo doesn’t sprawl, but the 10-foot ceilings of exposed concrete, oversized windows and nearly wall-free layout lend a sense of spaciousness. Perks include a rooftop hangout with Gold Dome views, a gym, and 24-hour concierge. The major detraction — and probably the reason the unit hasn't sold after nearly three months on market — is the lack of parking, as in (Atlanta gasps!) zero parking spaces. But that's the price one pays for a $110,000 condo with miniscule HOA fees of $48 per month and true walkability.
