Construction has entered its final weeks at Atlanta’s tallest post-recession building thus far, Icon Midtown.
The 39-story tower at the corner of West Peachtree and 14th streets—most recognizable for its soaring, lighted HENSE mural—has welcomed a handful of residents over the past few months. But with the full slate of amenities expected to come online in the next few weeks, a soft opening party was held Wednesday to show the building off.
Inside, the tower boasts luxe finishes and floorplans ranging from 600-square-foot studios to three-bedroom, two-bathroom pads with more than 1,400 square feet.
The 39th floor features a game room, bar, roof terrace, and a small cigar terrace overlooking Midtown; the pool deck, outdoor dining area, and a glass-edged hot tub overhanging 14th Street are on the 11th floor.
Other amenities include a large fitness area, complete with massage rooms—masseuse not included—on the ground floor. When the adjacent Whole Foods opens, residents will be able to access it (and an adjoining restaurant space fronting West Peachtree Street) from Icon’s lobby.
Of course, the amenities, walkability, and brand-new-apartment smell don’t come cheap.
Units start at nearly $1,900 per month and go up from there.
The views from the 39th floor are undeniably spectacular, and each bedroom in the building fits a king bed, but overall there’s little to truly set Icon apart from the other “luxury” offerings that have popped up in the city.
It’ll be interesting to see if leasing picks up once the construction fences come down.
