About midway between Colony Square and Piedmont Park’s Active Oval, a rare new Atlanta condo building is moving forward, promising exclusivity and refreshingly throwback architecture—for a price.

Condos at a five-story, neoclassical project on 14th Street called “The Dowling” began listing this week, ranging from $1.65 to $1.75 million. They’re expected to deliver a year from January.

Designed by Kuo Diedrich and developed by Atlanta’s Kim King Associates, The Dowling is promising park and city views, as well as exclusivity, privacy, and relatively low HOA fees. (For the pricier three-bedroom units, monthly dues are listed as $625).

It appears the two-bedroom flats will actually have more interior space (2,350 square feet) than the three-bedrooms (2,220). All come with two parking spaces, 10-foot ceilings, and covered balconies—also described as “outdoor living rooms”—with fireplaces.

Expect top-shelf brandnames throughout the interiors, including Circa Lighting, Porcelanosa, Kingdom Woodworks, et cetera.

As for the building’s name, it’s an homage to Alexander Dowling McLennan, grandfather of developer Beau King, the company’s president and CEO.

The development team describes the building’s namesake thusly:

“A genteel, ‘no-fuss’ personality, Dowling is remembered for his attention to fine detail, love for gardening and ‘quality over quantity’ veneer, most notably via his signature gray bowler hat and single Hermes overcoat. Though he was an avid traveler, Dowling possessed a great affection for his hometown of Atlanta, planting roots in the city that are still blossoming today as his grandchildren carry out his legacy.”
