Leigh McAdams’ smittenness with Unit 216 at Midtown’s 805 Peachtree condos, a former government office building from the 1950s, began on these pages back in 2014.
McAdams was just beginning to scout Midtown for a home when a much browner Unit 216 emerged here with a $299,900 price tag that May.
Harp music ensued.
“I went and checked it out and fell in love with the building, the location, and the potential I saw in the loft,” writes McAdams. “Now, I am headed to grad school and listing it myself ... It’s a fantastic building and community in a really fun neighborhood, and I have absolutely loved living here.”
Boldly marketed as the best-priced two-bedroom, two-bathroom loft in all of Midtown, Unit 216 certainly has a fresh face—a pure-white aesthetic that extends up to the ductwork—and a more minimal feel overall. (The furniture is for sale, too, at additional cost.) Updates include some lighting and the fridge.
The new price (exactly $100,000 more than the last time Unit 216 beckoned the world) is reflective of increases across the city.
For a 1,445-square-foot Midtown condo within a short stroll of more than 100 restaurants and Piedmont Park, the $399,900 ask could scream, “Bargain!” But this building’s legendarily high HOA fees ($653 monthly for this unit) are nothing to sneeze at. The fees do include cable, Internet, gas, a concierge, and perks like the saltwater pool, sizable fitness center, and “two prime covered parking spaces.”
In its browner state, Unit 216 ultimately sold for $270,000 in June 2014—which was $60,000 less than it’d last traded for in 2005. Ouch.
Atlanta condo hunters hungry for non-cramped spaces in unique buildings with primo locales just might find much to love here, too.
