Here at developer John Wieland’s mid-rise opus, One Museum Place, we find a sleek and spacious Midtown condo with enough sunlight pouring in to inspire, oh, a hit song.
Coincidentally or not, the seller happens to be a Grammy Award winner—see the dining room credenza for verifiable proof—who’s requested anonymity.
The décor at Unit 3B certainly reflects a lifestyle in the arts, with the oversized Venus mural in the main living area, iconic Banksy image etched onto another wall, and what appears to be Chihuly glass.
It’s marketed as being “artful,” “grand,” “creative,” and a general treat for the senses. Ally May, an Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty agent who holds the listing, adds another adjective via email: “smashing.”
But despite Atlanta’s sizzling home and condo market, the 2,275-square-foot dwelling hasn’t exactly been swatting buyers away. It listed in early November at $1.85 million, where it remains.
Opened in 2017, the 44-unit complex was designed by Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects to echo the work of renowned architects Renzo Piano and Richard Meier across the street, at the High Museum of Art.
The 82 Walk Score reflects One Museum Place’s walkable location, where MARTA transit, the Winn Park greenspace, and mixed-use hubs like reborn Colony Square are within about a block.
After more than 100 days on the market, Unit 3B is one of about a dozen Midtown condos listed north of $1.5 million at the moment without contracts.
Maybe Atlantans are having trouble stomaching a two-bedroom condo flirting with $2 million, no matter the high-end finishes and views of the iconic museum. It’s conceivable that guests, should a multitude arrive, could camp out on the screened-in lanai, a common highlight of condos in the building.
City records indicate the condo in question has sold just once before, about five years ago, for $1.13 million. Find a closer, VIP-level look in the above gallery.
