High above West Peachtree and 16th streets, TXO Investment Group has embarked on a to-the-bones renovation of the 40th floor of 1280 West, currently Midtown’s tallest residential building, officials tell Curbed Atlanta.

The developer project, Chateau Des Peres, seeks to pay homage to the modern chateaus of Neuilly-sur-Seine; and, like its European counterparts, the renovation venture will feature European finishes and obsessive attention to detail in a centralized Midtown location, said Drake Thompson, founder of TXO Investment Group.

Scheduled for completion in September, the project includes three modern, two-bedroom penthouse condominiums, each with about 2,300 2,000 square feet.

The building was constructed in 1989, so the changes should be dramatic. Back in 2013, the entire top floor, in raw condition, was being offered for a “liquidation” price of $845,000.

In addition to panoramic views of Atlantic Station and the Westside, the condos will include Spanish tile, English oak floors, customized closets, remote-controlled electronic window shades, and Smart Home Automation complete with a Nest thermostat and Amazon Alexa, per marketers.

Custom Leicht Kitchens will be outfitted with waterfall islands and Bosch and Thermador appliances.

In the master suites, expect heated marble floors, marble-enclosed fireplaces, and a custom cedar sauna with hot rocks in the master bath.

Outside, potential homeowners can relax on a large outdoor terrace with accordion paneled doors and yet more marble flooring.

Each unit will include a private garage and storage unit, along with such building amenities as a fitness center, swimming pool and sundeck, tennis courts, and a billiards room.

Although no exact prices are available yet, pricing is expected to start somewhere in the high $700,000s.

While the address might not qualify as Atlanta’s most glamorous, those looking for an affordable (relatively speaking) entry into not only intown living but also spacious high-rise living could find this compelling.
