After three years of construction and no shortage of neighborhood anticipation, a boutique condo project by TV host and carpenter Ty Pennington has brought its offerings to market.
Condos at The Otis Building, an eight-loft development by Pennington Properties on Castleberry Hill’s Walker Street, range from one-bedroom units to two-story penthouses with soaring mezzanines, skyline views, and private rooftop decks.
It’s being marketed as a property unlike any other new product around downtown Atlanta. The overall style could be called approachable contemporary, with a penchant for industrial-leaning relics such as timeworn brick and reclaimed antique floors.
The bulk of Otis condos are one-bedrooms priced at around a half-million bucks, ranging from $508,200 up to $591,000. That buys anywhere from 1,093 to 1,271 square feet.
On the third level of three (not including rooftop spaces), two penthouses are priced just over $1.3 million, with between 2,839 and 2,914 square feet.
That makes them both the priciest offerings on the Castleberry Hill market right now—by more than $670,000.
Pennington, a Marietta native and graduate of Art Institute of Atlanta, is best known for his roles on the original Trading Spaces and ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, in addition to more recent work on HGTV’s Ty Breaker and Rock the Block. He also heads Pennington Properties, which broke ground on the infill Otis condo project in 2019.
Designed by Castleberry Hill firm Dillman Studio, The Otis is named for an elevator manufacturer that once operated on the site, and the partially preserved façade still carries the company’s logo.
Pennington has a connection with Castleberry Hill properties that dates back to renovations he completed with his brother prior to Atlanta’s 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, when the neighborhood’s abandoned warehouses initially experienced a residential resurgence. Plans for a Pennington-led condo development in the neighborhood first emerged back in 2018.
Apart from condos, the Otis also features two for-sale retail slots at street level. The building’s perks include gated parking, private-floor elevator access, and grilling and seating areas with skyline views on the communal roof deck.
The lofts come with JennAir appliances, marble or quartz countertops, and overall designs described as “sophisticated” and “embracing Castleberry expressions.” Nicholas Brown with Compass of Greater Atlanta and BrownDaniel Group hold the listings.
