In this two-bedroom condo at the Seventh Midtown building, virtually every window frames construction cranes pulling another neighborhood tower into the sky, enabling occupants to watch Atlanta’s evolution in real time.
Provided that said occupants can cover an $849,900 asking price that includes mortgage-esque HOA fees of $1,181 monthly. The price translates to $470 for every square foot.
That being said, there’s much going on here that elevates the 1,805-square-foot flat beyond cookie-cutter blah, beginning with what the listing describes as “Midtown’s most desirable address,” which is debatable. (It’s tough to argue, though, with a 93 WalkScore in Atlanta).
From this angle, the Spire tower across the street almost appears to be a living skyscraper, overflowing with Peachtree-facing plant life. Nice touch. With zero maintenance required from this side of the street.
The condo listed a week ago and is described as “perfect,” with “impeccable” finishes and access to amenities next door at the Viewpoint tower called “luxury hotel quality.” These are bold statements.
Perks begin with an oversized storage slot and two parking spaces on the same level, while the interior unveils goodies such as Waterworks fixtures, Pedini cabinetry from Italy, and Control4 home automation.
Find a wet bar within splashing distance of the kitchen’s farm-style sink—and a dee-luxe SubZero and Wolf appliance package.
It all clocks in at basically half the price of a roomier three-bedroom still available upstairs, after a year. Those are two of three resales seeking buyers now, in this boutique building of 20 homes.
As new construction, the condo in question traded two years ago at $819,000, per property records.
So the inflation in this instance doesn’t appear exorbitant. And the place still obviously looks clean and crisp.
