As one of Midtown’s original stacked condo options, Hanover House was once a fortressed anomaly among grand estates gone shabby and seedy streets.
The neighborhood has drastically changed since this Colony Square component debuted in 1972, but the building retains an essence of the era that’s back en vogue.
Maybe it’s the layout or white porcelain floors. Or the hallway of stylized concrete leading to it. But this 11th-floor flat has an air of 1970s vintage meeting 21st century updates.
The only condo for sale at the moment in this particular building at 147 15th Street—boldly described in the listing as “the best building in Midtown”—it carries an asking price of $519,000, as listed with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers.
The hyperbole doesn’t end there. One feature of living here is “the best concierge service in the city,” which is funded by the complex’s notoriously high HOA fees.
In this case, $809 monthly.
That doesn’t grant pool access, but amenities do include proximity to Piedmont Park and the next-door rejuvenation of Colony Square.
The condo brings two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,349 square feet, with updates spanning from the kitchen (Miele appliances, a Sub-Zero fridge) to the overhauled master bathroom (sensor-activated floodlights, SieMatic cabinets like the kitchen’s).
This unit’s original owners actually still live in the building, as the listing notes, “because people hate to leave!”
So those relatively high HOAs must become more tolerable with time?
