One of the great things about condominium living in Midtown Atlanta is the old saying, “variety is the spice of life.” Whether you are looking for old or new, high-rise or one story, lots of amenities or no amenities, Midtown Atlanta has probably got the building for you.
I used to be able to say we had condos in all price ranges, but that gap is truly becoming smaller and smaller. So, when I have a condo buyer call me and they are on a budget, the first suggestion I make is Cornerstone Village.
Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta
Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta is one of the few remaining condo buildings where you can find a 1 bedroom for less than $200,000 and a 2 bedroom for less than $300,000! Of course, there are reasons this building has lower values than some of the neighboring buildings like Viewpoint or Spire. But let’s look at all the benefits of living and owning at Cornerstone Village!
The community consists of 4 different buildings. Two are historic buildings from the 1940’s that have seen some varied uses, and two are newer construction as the development was created in 1999.
The Landmark building is the largest building, located on the corner of 5th and Peachtree Streets. Once an office building, the interior was gutted and the current condominiums created in 1998/1999. There is a variety of 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans available, ranging from approximately 625 square feet to around 1300 square feet for the largest 2 bedroom floor plan. The homes in this building feature a range of flooring from concrete to hardwoods. Exposed ductwork and original brick walls (the exterior of the building) are unique features found in the Landmark Building. The building is 6 stories and has two elevators. There are no community amenities in the building…they are located elsewhere within the community.
Next, we have the Manor House. This building started out as the Manor House Hotel, and later became apartments before finally becoming part of Cornerstone Village. All the homes in this building are 1 bedroom floor plans. They have a more “finished” feeling with hardwood flooring, granite countertops and finished ceilings. There is no exposed brick or ductwork. I’ve seen some homes that have had changes or renovations made to them that made them much more unique than their original plan. The Manor House has a nice lobby area, and also contains the Fitness Center, a laundry room (left over from the apartment building days…each home has washer/dryer connections) the Movie Theater, a conference room, Resident Package Room and the HOA Management office. The HOA office would be the most likely place for a club room, but it is currently not used for that purpose.
The remaining two buildings are the new construction section that was built in 1999. Originally, they were going to be apartments that shared the condo amenities. But the sales of the homes in the Landmark and Manor House spurred the developer to convert the entire complex into condos. Called The Gallery originally, these two buildings are most often referred to as the 100 and 200 building. The difference between the two….the 100 building is larger, and has two elevators. The 200 Building is smaller and there is no direct elevator access to the building. These two buildings circle the resort-styled swimming pool and entertainment deck. Here you will find gas grills and seating are for outdoor dining and poolside chillin’! Additionally, in the 100 Building you will find a bike storage room and a game room, equipped with a pool table and foosball table.
I would say the main factors that keep Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta more affordable is the lack of a 24-hour Concierge, and the four different buildings. So, if you live in the Landmark Building and want to use the Fitness Center, it’s not located right in the same building as you might find in the newer, high-rise buildings. But if you can save $75,000 or more on the cost of a condo, it might be worth it, right?
Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta certainly does not lack for convenience when it comes to location. CVS Pharmacy, Gordon Biersch Brewery, Five Guys Burgers, Fresh To Order and Senor Patron’s Mexican restaurant are all just in the next block!!! On the street level of the Landmark Building, you will find El Scorpion Restaurant, Big Peach Running and recently, Einstein’s Bagels! Just behind the 100/200 Buildings on Cypress Street is Cypress Pint and Plate…with an awesome outdoor patio with a gas fire pit! This is a cool place to hang out for sure!
And then there is the convenience of everything else! Starting with Technology Square and Georgia Tech…just 2 blocks away! Need to get to the airport for a business trip or weekend getaway? The Midtown MARTA station OR the North Avenue MARTA station are about equal distance North or South from Cornerstone Village.
If you are looking for value, and want to live in Midtown Atlanta, then I encourage you to take a look at Cornerstone Village Midtown Atlanta! There is more than meets the eye to this community!~
