A Choice We Don’t Have to Make

Aug 3, 2020

The most fortunate residents of the luxury condos we see now in Midtown discovered a style that lets them have it both ways. They savor the beauty and breathe-easy feeling of the great outdoors, while still enjoying their vibrant connection with the energy, enterprise, commerce, and art that makes Atlanta one of the world’s great cities. Perhaps the biggest contribution to quality of life that the advanced architects and planners of today have achieved is the marriage of indoor and outdoor living – without the need to commute. Offered as condos, yes, the residences found at 40 West 12th Street nevertheless bring with them plenty of outdoor pleasures, too.

An Acre of Open Sky

A private, full-acre, green courtyard is enfolded among these luxury condos, and that courtyard is so big it’s called the Sky Plaza. Outdoor grilling and dining areas offer the chance to gather outdoors with friends while preserving precautions that keep everybody comfortable.

If there’s an occasion to be observed, the Sky Plaza at 40 West 12th offers advantages that even Atlanta’s precious parks, such as the vast Piedmont Park or the pocket-size Pershing Point or our beautiful Beltline cannot match. With an outdoor catering kitchen and bar, your outdoor entertaining options extend far beyond the backyard barbecue.

An Outdoors of Your Own

Indoor-outdoor fireplaces are another example of the extent to which outdoor enjoyment is an essential part of the plan here. Some of the largest balconies of Atlanta give the Midtown condos of 40 West 12th Street a version of outdoor pleasure that can be personalized. They remind us that luxury condos at their very best always offered at least a glimpse of outdoor diversion. In the early days, it might have consisted merely of a picture window, or a sliding door to a platform-sized outdoor terrace. So much better today, to choose the true luxury condo life in this generation, when some of Atlanta’s biggest balconies offer a real and continuous outdoor extension of the living room inside.

The self-serve bike shop that’s being prepared here may be a subtle statement of this outdoor priority, too. Opening soon to serve an increasingly bike-friendly Midtown the shop will serve residents for whom the bicycle is often far more than a source of exercise or recreation.

The Thrill and the Energy

Yes, the desire to live well in the heart of a great city led to the luxury condo, and today in Midtown Atlanta that impulse is amply extended to include the great outdoors. The result is to give physical manifestation to the freedom and imagination and broad horizons that live in the hearts the remarkable people who make their homes here.
