A project billed as West Midtown’s tallest high-rise is moving forward, marking an unusually tall venture for the industrial district and one of Atlanta’s largest active condo ventures.

Per the first listings at 788 West Midtown, construction is now underway and units are being released for sale. Renderings indicate the project will rise about 20 stories, overlooking active rail lines with sweeping skyline views beyond.

The building is flaunting “luxury resort amenities” along with walkability to Georgia Tech and the area’s growing roster of eateries, galleries, and shopping.

Listings so far show a wide range of prices, beginning at $541,900 (two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,129 square feet) and climbing to more than $1.2 million (three bedrooms, three bathrooms, 2,189 square feet). The latter is considered a penthouse.

The developer is McKinley Homes, a Norcross-based homebuilder with communities scattered across the Atlanta suburbs that’s reportedly angling to develop more urban areas.

The neighborhood includes the likes of King Plow and Puritan Mill loft districts, mixed-use hub The Brady, and warehouse transformations such as Stockyards.

And on nearby Howell Mill Road, significant developments are hatching left and right.

The two-pronged Star Metals Atlanta has launched construction to include a 14-story office stack, the Osprey project is bringing 300 apartments and retail, while a $150 million mixed-use build called 8 West is also underway on that densifying corridor.

788 West Midtown’s listings include fresh interior glimpses, as seen below.
