Goode Van Slyke Architecture Designs New Luxury High-Rise
Atlanta (February 2021) – The first residents of Seven88 West Midtown – a luxury high-rise condominium designed by Goode Van Slyke Architecture (GVSA) – have moved into the elegant 22-level community. Seven88, developed by McKinley Homes, was completed late last year. It features 18 floors of residences including luxurious penthouses with balconies and fireplaces – atop four controlled-access parking levels. Each of the 279 residences has energy-efficient floor-to-ceiling windows framing panoramic views including downtown and Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
“We don’t believe in cookie-cutter projects, so everything about the site, design and living experience is unique,” said partner Paul Van Slyke. “Seven88 West Midtown is a great example of what we do.”
Landscaped outdoor amenity decks include a saltwater pool and whirlpool spa, yoga lawn, outdoor kitchen, dining areas and fire pit. Indoor amenities include a clubroom with demonstration kitchen, state-of-the-art fitness center billiards, a lounge, coffee/refreshment bar, bike storage, dog park and pet spa. A concierge helps residents meet their daily needs.
A truly urban project, the building fills the site from curb to curb. Seen from the air, the pool deck resembles the prow of a luxury yacht. The ground level, designed for restaurants and boutique shopping, features dark brick that blends in with historic areas nearby. The tower’s multiple facets allow 20 different floor plans and a wide selection of views. Clear balcony railings enhance visibility and increase the natural light in the homes.
“We’re already known for designing a wide array of projects,” said GVSA partner Chris Goode. “We are excited to add this luxury high-rise to our portfolio.”
Precautions taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 also add more convenience. Keyless access cards open exterior doors; the no-contact elevator automatically goes to a resident’s floor. Residents can access a dedicated area for food and package deliveries without meeting anyone face-to-face. Common areas feature touchless lighting and temperature controls as well as hand sanitizer dispensers. A wide variety of restaurants are within walking distance to delight residents. Condo owners can also visit nearby galleries, concert halls, theatres and offices. The planned Beltline Westside Extension will make it an easy walk to downtown, the World Congress Center, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Centennial Olympic Park, the World of Coke, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, The Georgia Aquarium, etc.
