The Pleasures of High-Rise Living
Sometimes it seems the reasons for living the skyrise life in Atlanta are as many and varied as the people who choose it. City living is perhaps enjoyed to the fullest without the commute. And the best use of the urban advantages extends well beyond the workday. As Midtown becomes a magnet, and Atlanta takes its place among the world’s great cities, many Atlanta residents are coming to the same conclusion.
Practical reasons abound for choosing condos over single-family homes. Most of the time and cost of maintenance and upkeep can go straight to another budget line – such as keeping up and deepening those relationships with family and friends. As careers in a global economy continue to include travel, there’s more peace of mind in saying so-long to a skyrise that will be continually attended-to than departing one’s freestanding home out of town. And then, there’s the advantage of access.
Staying on Top of Things
Atlantic Station offers a leading example of how best to live with a leg up on Midtown. Coming Saturday, March 14, is one of America’s oldest (1858) and largest St. Patrick’s Day parades, setting off from Peachtree in Midtown. And speaking of green, the Green Market in Piedmont Park offers a perennial reason to get out and mingle, coming home with something delicious to show for it. Also in Piedmont Park, April 17-19, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival has been celebrating the arrival of spring for more than 80 years. A nationally known, juried Fine Artist Market presents some exceptional options for decorating Midtown condos, to add dimension to the skyrise life.
On Memorial Day weekend, May 23-24, one of the nation’s largest jazz festivals – the Atlanta Jazz Festival – holds forth, presenting both legends and newcomers in Piedmont Park – and it’s free. That’s just the climax of 31 days of jazz, presented by the festival beginning May 1. Then May 28-31, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival celebrates its 10th year with exhibits, culinary workshops, and events.
Comes the Summer
And this just gets us to the brink of June. Summers in nearby Piedmont Park are all the outdoor living many Midtown residents demand. Studded with events, from road races to ice cream festivals, from art shows to concerts, our favorite park is just one of the larger jewels in the green necklace of the fabled Atlanta Beltline. And skyrise families flock to the summer camp for kids conducted by the Piedmont Park Conservancy.
