Now peeking over the Howell Mill Road corridor, Georgia Tech’s campus, and many other points west, intown’s tallest multifamily building west of Atlantic Station officially topped out this week, standing like a glass-clad anomaly among apartment complexes, railroad tracks, and former factories.

Seven88 West Midtown started its ascent last fall, averaging one new floor per week, and now is unmissable in the postindustrial district where hundreds of rentals are also in the pipeline.

At 22 stories with 279 for-sale residences, it marks the area’s first condo tower—and the largest offering of new condos to materialize anywhere in Atlanta since the recession a decade ago.

A rep tells Curbed Atlanta this week that delivery is expected in October and that 46 percent of Seven88’s condos have 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.

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 space meant for “curated retail, restaurant. and entertainment” options, developers have said.

We visited the site a couple of weeks ago to check construction progress and combined photos from that outing with scenes from atop the full building this week. It’s a fresh perspective on a part Atlanta where investment is clearly surging.
