Built in pre-recession 2006, the twin towers of Plaza Midtown rose over a much different landscape, overlooking surface parking, barren lots, and low-rise structures (R.I.P., Checkers and Dominos) where a forest of high-rises now stands.
Despite the growth in this section of town, the 450 condos among these 19-story structures have hardly become the exclusive domain of millionaires. Attractive for-sale options at a quarter of a million bucks, in fact, do exist.
An example of what’s available is this stylish condo, No. 822, marketed as being “amazing,” with south-facing views that are largely protected, spanning across the property’s green space to downtown.
At 812 square feet, it’s not large by Atlanta standards, but not a closet either. It listed this week with Ansley Atlanta Real Estate for $309,900.
A dozen condos are for sale at Plaza Midtown right now—including slightly smaller options priced in the mid and high $200,000s—but none with quite the same panache. At least not in this price range.
Perks include 10-foot ceilings in certain areas, designer lighting, the right amount of wallpaper for visual variety, and a surprisingly large balcony.
The building counts an 86 WalkScore, meaning most errands are easily accomplished on foot, with Publix just an elevator ride away.
Pickier buyers might hanker for fixture and backsplash updates, but that might not be a deterrent overall.
Monthly HOA commitments are listed as $314, and that covers access to a large gym, pool, and what’s described as a recently spiffed-up clubhouse with grills, kitchen, and fire pit.
