Young Jeezy’s former Buckhead penthouse is back on market, renovated, asking $1.5M

The Atlanta rapper’s old digs—once a spartan space with a shrine to footwear—are called the “ultimate entertainer’s showplace”

When this two-story penthouse last hit the market in 2013 as the property of Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy, it was minimalist to the point of being icy—somewhat fitting for an artist also known as “The Snowman.”

The glaring exception was an apartment-sized custom closet that doubled as a temple to Jeezy’s obvious footwear fetish.

The man legally known as Jay W. Jenkins eventually took a loss on the crib he’d scooped up for $1.32 million as the Great Recession began. It traded for $950,000 in early 2014, records show.

That’s all in the rearview at The Phoenix on Peachtree building’s Unit 2605, where CEO-level dough was clearly spent to warm the place up without marring its sleekness—or blocking those views.

Spanning more than 3,100 square feet, the south-facing, sky-high flat was fully renovated and updated from its 2001 origins, resulting in a refined space that’s the “ultimate entertainer’s showplace,” per the Keller Williams Metro Atlanta Realty listing.

The ask: $1,495,000. Plus $1,350 monthly HOA fees.

The high point, literally, could be the grand living space with ceilings and windows of more than 20 feet, framing a spectacular portrait of neighboring buildings, traffic, and so many trees.

A private elevator (or floating stairs) reveals a second story with all three bedrooms and three full baths. Views from Kennesaw to Atlantic Station continue in many rooms.

The hefty HOAs get 24-hour concierge services and access to a formidable pool and fitness center. The building, as the listing interestingly notes, is among the city’s lowest-density towers, counting just 65 condos total.
