The Perks of Condo Living

Jun 22, 2020

When people who live in the luxury condos located in Midtown speak of the things they enjoy about living here, we notice that a lot of the story is about what they don’t have. Yes, the perks of living in condos are positive, and yet the Atlanta life we savor here is as much about what we can skip as it is about what we can do.

For many, the first perk that comes to mind is life without a commute. Midtown has become one of the world’s leading live-work-play neighborhoods. The mixed-use ideal of planners and architects everywhere is already here, thanks to more than 40 years of keen foresight and diligent effort from the Midtown Alliance. The living manual for achieving what we have and keep and grow here today, Blueprint Midtown, is now undergoing its third review and update. So far, it has given Midtown a wealth of pedestrian-friendly streetscapes, trees, parks, plazas, and even monitored, measured bicycle routes, to knit-together our modern skyline with human comfort, security, and livability.

The Gift of Time

Many of the other perks of condo living have to do with time, too. James Taylor once sang, “The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time,” and he might well have had this Midtown lifestyle in mind. In addition to the time that others may devote to commuting, residents in the luxury condos here get back for their own enjoyment the time that others spend on the demands and responsibilities that come with freestanding home ownership.

When a resident of the condos here works on the home, you can bet it was their own idea, and that it has to do with fitting it to their visions and desires even more closely. The basics are already taken care of. Maintaining the lawn, the grounds, the water and electrical supply, caring for the pool – surely there are suburban residents who do enjoy this – but for those who don’t, this Midtown life is an intelligent answer. You don’t have to be “handy” to live in a luxury condo.

The Personal Touch of Service

And particularly in luxury condos such as those found at 40 West 12th Street, consider the convenience of getting to the Yoga studio or to a state-of-the-art health and wellness club by elevator, rather than by car. Or lounging by an all-season, resort-style pool where a concierge sees to your towels and chairs. Or entertaining larger parties from an indoor and outdoor catering kitchen and bar. Even 24-hour, full-service concierge services are at your call.

And what of some of the pleasures people usually associate with the suburbs, such as the backyard barbecue or the neighborhood bike ride? Here, people enjoy grilling and dining areas around a private green courtyard. A self-serve bike shop takes the place of that cluttered garage.

Yes, among the condos of Midtown, people are as glad for what they gained as for what they left behind, and this desirability is reflected in value. For more information on how to own at 40 West 12th, visit or contact us at 404.347.3838.
