With penthouse options dwindling, it was a breath of fresh air to see this 2-story showplace at Metropolis come on the market. I don’t know if you have been shopping around for condos (or single-family homes for that matter), but the really great homes are getting harder and harder to find.
This amazing condominium has been achieved by combining two smaller penthouse units into a single space. The result? Over 3,600 square feet of interior space in the middle of Midtown at Metropolis. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill combined condo. This was a seamless blend of two spaces. One where you can’t tell what was existing and what was added. I’ve been in a good number of combo units and many leave me wondering “why did they do that?” This wasn’t the case here.
Interior designer Lee Bryan was hired to turn the adjoining two units into one stunning, contemporary space. He integrated the electronics into one home automation system and then turned his thoughts on furnishings and artwork. He did an amazing job. (Lee also does more traditional designs as well.)

It’s been a long road, but Luxe has managed to nearly sell all of the remaining inventory. The only two units left are a Penterra home on the 6th floor for $729,900 and a 2-bedroom condo on the 7th floor for $499,900. In our current market, price is king and location is key. I believe these are the reasons why the project has been so successful. I speak with many buyers who are still searching for amazing deals, but with our condo inventory dwindling, the incredible deals are getting harder and harder to find. If you have been on the fence, you had better get moving. Click this link for Luxe Listing in the MLS.

Condo living has its challenges when the buyer is looking for significant outdoor space. There are very few condominiums in Atlanta that offer decent outdoor space, let alone massive spaces. Spaces big enough to have an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, covered areas and outdoor dining/lounging areas. Look no more. This huge terrace can be found at Aqua Midtown at Penthouse 2301. We took a look at the inside space a couple days ago, so today we’ll explore the outside. Hopefully you will see why this penthouse is one of my favorites in Midtown. Above is the stunning Downtown view from one of the terraces. Click Here for More Photos & the Rest of the Feature

There aren’t too many penthouses in Atlanta where you can find just as much exterior space as interior space, but this penthouse at Aqua Midtown has both. Best of all, it has never been occupied so you don’t really have to deal with any “mistakes” the previous owner has made. This particular penthouse was supposed to have been the developers personal residence, but he has since moved on. There were some changes made to the space (definitely good ones) so this isn’t your cookie-cutter plan.
You enter the penthouse from a private elevator foyer. The space is round and features a trey ceiling and a hidden door leading to the service area. There is also a media room with a screen that drops down from the ceiling. The entire condo has been pre-wired (which cost over $50,000) for anything your heart desires. You can have total home automation, including remote controlled shades. There are a large amount of windows throughout, so the space is always bright and sunny. Major rooms open directly out to the terraces. Click Here for More Photos & the Rest of the Feature

The Atlantic Residences will begin releasing a small number of condominiums into a new leasing program through a very limited, high-end rental program. Citing the very real costs of operating and maintaining a large skyscraper, received funds from the rentals will supplement marketing costs (to sell the remaining inventory) as well as fund ongoing payments to the master condominium association. Rentals will be offered at an average of $2,500 per month for a one-bedroom condominium, which is considerably higher than the standard $1,500-$1,900 range in most buildings.
There will be a completely separate leasing office located on a residential floor of the tower, meant not to detract or distract from the continuing for-sale marketing program by the sales team (currently located adjacent to the residential lobby). Those units being leased will adhere to the Georgia Condominium Act (requirements include: providing notice to existing tenants of an impending conversion to condominium and providing each existing tenant with a right of first refusal to purchase the tenant’s residence and disclosure to potential purchasers the physical condition of the property based on an engineer or architect’s report). Ultimately, the program is designed to convert those leasing to owning. Click Here for More Photos & the Rest of the Feature
