A rare condo tower project that’s meant to singlehandedly change the feel of a postindustrial Atlanta district is climbing by one floor per week, developers report.

Pending weather delays this winter, the Seven88 West Midtown condominium building is expected to top out at 22 stories in February, a glassy anomaly among so many newer mid-rises and century-old former warehouses.

It’s adding a new story for every seven workdays at 788 West Marietta Street, say officials with Ansley Developer Services, who provided updated aerial photos that show the site amidst of a flock of construction cranes around the Howell Mill Road corridor.

Developers reported in May that 100 of an expected 279 residences had sold.

Condo sizes will range from 699-square-foot studios to more than 2,800 square feet, with a choice of 20 floorplans.

Prices start in the high $300,000s and max out at $1.75 million for the penthouses, according to marketers.

“Residents are buying into West Midtown and all of the growth that is happening in the area—new commercial, retail, and restaurants,” David Tufts, Ansley Developer Services president, said in a prepared statement this week.

Building amenities will include a concierge, a dog spa, bike storage, fitness and yoga facilities, a saltwater swimming pool with views, and a lounge with billiards.

At street level, expect 9,000 square feet of retail meant for “curated retail, restaurant. and entertainment space,” per developers.

The building’s scheduled to open for residents next October.
