Thus far, promises of pristine views that will last forever in sky-rise happy Midtown haven’t been enough to sell this high-floor unit at the Luxe tower, which has undergone two price-chops since listing for $869,000 in April.
The most recent reduction ($25,000) last week brings the ask to $825,000. Even in condo-starved Midtown, that might seem a tall order for a two-bedroom unit with just over 1,800 square feet, but if this place looks remarkably current for its 2008 vintage, it’s due to the $75,000 in upgrades that include walnut floors, renovated bathrooms, upgraded light fixtures, and custom closets, per the listing.
Another unique perk in Midtown these days: legitimately protected views.
Kirsten Conover, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices agent, tells Curbed Atlanta this 18th-floor pad has "forever" views from its curved glass wall and balcony onto Piedmont Park and south toward downtown. How so? Specific zoning east of the Luxe tower mandates that the maximum height of any future building will be limited to 50 feet, or three to five stories, Conover says.
"Condo owners' views seem to be disappearing as fast as new luxury apartment buildings and condo high-rises can be built," she adds.
In April, a slightly larger three-bedroom unit sold in the same building for $675,000, while a penthouse bagged north of $2 million last October.
