Since it opened in the year 2000, Poncey-Highland’s City View Lofts has seen a weedy railroad corridor become the Beltline’s Eastside Trail, beleaguered City Hall East morph into Ponce City Market, and a little skatepark across the street make way for 755 North apartments.

Whether that’s progress or proof of a tireless, yuppified takeover is the subject of debate, but what’s indisputable is that lofts in the 790 North Avenue building have capitalized on the neighborhood’s evolution.

The latest to take a crack at listing for more than a half-million dollars is Unit 203.

It’s a 1,750-square-foot space with two bedrooms and two bathrooms—and truly soaring ceilings that other listings have noted reach 22 feet.

Fanciful lighting begins in the entryway.

A block up the street from PCM, the loft shines with natural light by way of massive windows, including palladium styles.

Plusses include fresh paint, two gated parking spaces, and Google Fiber. But the track lighting, some bathroom finishes, and yesteryear countertops hint at Y2K-era origins here.

Listed by Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Midtown at $540,000 this week (with $454 monthly HOA fees), the property is described as an entertainers’ dream and “the BEST OF THE BEST!”
