“We literally gutted the existing penthouse to achieve our new design.”
That’s Jennifer Crosby, CEO and president of Atlanta-based Crosby Design Group, describing what recently transpired atop Loews Atlanta Hotel, where the formerly staid 37th-floor penthouse was transformed into what the firm describes as a “Manhattan SoHo vibe” with views for miles.
“Plenty of penthouses have city views,” noted Crosby, “but this $3 million penthouse offers stunning views both inside and out.”
Working with homeowner David Jenkins, president and owner of Duluth-based Rocklyn Homes, Crosby’s team took the uncommon approach—as newer Atlanta condos go, at least—of exposing ductwork, cementing drywall, and adding loads of brick.
Spanning 2,800 square feet, the Peachtree Street sky-pad now features a two-sided, water-vapor fireplace and 12-foot ceilings of scalloped brick. Room count: three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, each with custom vanities. The furnishings and art alone are said to have cost well over $1 million.
Crosby and co. sent over before/after photos and details that walk us through this dramatic interior redo.
