Atlanta condo hunters in the market for a retro-cool building and older unit with character (but not a whiff of stuffiness) could be charmed by this new offering high over Peachtree Road.
Marketed as a “jewel box in the sky,” this 25th-floor residence graced the cover of Atlanta magazine’s HOME publication three years ago, under an appropriate headline, “Hello, Chic.”
That also marked the 50th anniversary of the setting, Buckhead’s Plaza Towers, a pair of twin concrete high-rises from 1969 where adoration for midcentury modern design never really fell out of style. The towers are credited with giving Atlanta its first options for luxury high-rise living.
As with all Plaza Towers condos, Unit 25C has two relatively large terraces with sweeping views in different directions. To the south, Midtown sparkles at night; the listing describes sunsets from the west option as “spectacular.”
Moving inside, vintage parquet hardwood flooring carries throughout most of the 1,594-square-foot home, which embraces a borderline gothic bent in places (see: foyer). Floors of checkerboard marble imported from Italy echo in said foyer and the kitchen, where Design Galleria and McKenzie Design transformed the space with Downsview cabinets, custom lights, and Caesarstone counters.
The asking price for this two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad is $925,000, as listed with Ally May of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty.
Listing services peg HOA fees at a daunting $1,436 per month. According to the property’s website, that grants access to everything from 24/7 concierge services to a dog park, conference center, and library—but no pool.
As created by an Atlanta designer who’d decamped from the ’burbs, “no expense has been spared on this pied-à-terre high above the city with vast views of the downtown skyline,” as the listing puts it.
