Three-bedroom unit touts location near Centennial Olympic Park, but don’t expect cutting-edge design throughout

Built 15 years ago in the wake of Atlanta’s Olympic Games, the all-brick Centennial House downtown usually flies under-the-radar in terms of intown multifamily dwellings.

But now this three-bedroom penthouse—touted as a “spectacular ... entertainer’s dream” with “awesome city views” that span 270 degrees from the Georgia Aquarium to Portman’s spires—is hoping to make a splash with its $950,000 ask.

That price fetches 2,800 square feet (but just two bathrooms) and everything that’s pictured below; it comes so furnished even the dishes and linens are included.

Materials throughout include travertine, custom marble (in the bathrooms, it appears), and Brazilian hardwood floors. There’s an unusual (but handy) second faucet next to the stove for pot-filling, plus body-jets in one shower. The banquet kitchen and bar in the main, open living space consume a lot of real estate.

Notably, the unit comes with four parking spaces, two storage units, and one around-the-clock concierge. Per the listing, it can also be rented for $4,500 monthly, but for buyers who’d prefer living here, “JUST BRING YOUR TOOTHBRUSH!” Although discerning Atlanta home-shoppers might want to hit “reset” on the black toilet and Friends-era vessel sinks.

The lack of listing photos from balconies is a red flag, hinting that outdoor spaces (beyond the community rooftop) could be limited to Juliet balconies. Exterior photos of the building appear to verify that.

But then again, who needs to hang out on balconies when the dy-no-mite 88 WalkScore indicates that so many recreational, dining, drinking, and transportation splendors are a short stroll away?
