Over the last few years, Atlanta’s condo market has become a hot commodity, with new properties popping up along the city skyline as home buyers clamor for well-appointed residences coupled with a true low-maintenance lifestyle in a bustling urban setting. With so many options now available, it can be tough to decide which condo community to choose for your new home in the ATL. For some, the deciding factor involves the resort-style amenities offered by the condo development. From swimming pools and fitness centers to onsite restaurants and concierge service, the bells and whistles can make all the difference in selecting your new address. Here, two of the area’s most coveted condo properties share the top three unique features and amenities that set them apart in the local market and could be the key element that stands out for you during your condo home search.
Seven88 West Midtown
788 West Marietta Street
Atlanta, GA 30318
One of the city’s most popular condominium developments is Seven88 West Midtown, a beautiful 22-story building located on Atlanta’s Westside. Offering a hip, urban lifestyle, the property features a unique all-glass exterior that offers dramatic city views and open vistas from every direction. The bold, contemporary architecture includes floor-to-ceiling windows inside each of the property’s 279 luxury residences, affording those views to everyone. And home buyers can choose from 20 exceptional floor plans designed to maximize the building’s views and space. The homes, which include one-, two- and three-bedroom options, as well as penthouses, are priced from the mid-$300s to more than $1 million and feature designer finishes presented in three distinct options, hardwood flooring and kitchens with European-style cabinetry with under-mount lighting, waterfall-edge quartz countertops, tiled backsplashes and much more.
In terms of the property’s amenities, there are three can’t-miss opportunities that should factor into your decision-making process.
The Saltwater Pool
Seven88 West Midtown’s gorgeous saltwater pool is a peaceful, relaxing oasis that provides more benefits than a traditional chlorine pool. For additional relaxation and rejuvenation, take a dip in the whirlpool spa next to the pool, heated to the perfect temperature. Not much of a swimmer? The area contains multiple locations to lounge and to soak in some sunny rays. Shaded canopies and gathering areas make for great hangout spots by the water.
The Outdoor Deck
Opposite the pool deck is a spacious outdoor deck that is fully outfitted with an outdoor dining area, barbeque pits and a cozy fireplace. Happy hours, impromptu grilling and night sky watching are a few of the many activities you can enjoy on the terrace. City views help make the experience even better, as onlookers can view iconic restaurants and buildings near and far from the comfort of the deck. For some greenery in Atlanta’s concrete jungle or a respite from the work-from-home life, Seven88’s amenity deck adds to the allure of the building.
The Indoor Dog Park
The indoor dog park is one of the final pieces that ties Seven88’s amenity package up with the perfect treat for pets and their owners. Four-legged residents can stretch their legs and freely run around the area without traveling far from their homes. A mural of the Atlanta city skyline pays a colorful homage to the location of Seven88 and completes the look of the place. For relaxation and pampering for your pooch, right next door is a dedicated dog spa area to freshen up those tired paws. Furry family members will have a blast in this part of the property.
