A topic of conversation in Midtown since at least 2013, YOO on the Park welcomed its first residents last week and allowed glimpses at amenities long touted as being the finest among apartment towers in the region.

Standing 25 posh stories, the finished tower up the street from Piedmont Park is offering some units for more than $3 per square foot—a benchmark once thought impossible in Atlanta. (For example: a 540-square-foot studio for $1,630). Even higher, most of the penthouse apartments have already rented for nearly $6,000 per month.

The 245-unit collaboration between Trillist and London-based YOO Studio is being called Atlanta’s only internationally-branded lifestyle community.

In a release announcing the opening, developers called pre-leasing “positive” with demand from residents seeking finishes and amenities that stand out.

Among other perks, the 245-unit building boasts a saline pool, cabinetry imported from Milan, in-unit 1-gigabit Wi-Fi and fiber connectivity, an outdoor yoga terrace, and a signature Fido-pampering service called Pet Respite℠.

Above the entrance, covering the parking facade, find one of the largest living Green Walls in the nation, per officials. (In a world of copycat development, maybe this can be duplicated around Atlanta.)

So here’s YOO on the Park in the flesh, from the property’s golf simulator to the high-floor balconies.

Walk through the front doors, and you’re greeted in a reception area that developers say rivals high-end Manhattan apartments.
