* Honorable Mention: Mayfair Renaissance, Atlanta, GA

Oct. 1, 2002
Inspired by the elegance of neoclassical English architecture, the 34-story, 416,390-square-foot Mayfair Renaissance commands a striking presence against the Atlanta skyline. The Renaissance tower follows the success of the first Mayfair Tower, one of the most significant architectural buildings in Atlanta, as well as the fastest selling condominium project in the city’s history. The high-rise building’s condos offer sweeping views of Atlanta’s downtown, Buckhead, Stone Mountain, and Piedmont Park areas.Project highlights and amenities include:The building’s signature four rooftop cupolas, which are capped with light lanterns reminiscent of earlier times.Extensive use of cherry millwork, doors, and running trim, as well as imported and domestic marble slab floors, within the first floor.An English library that houses over 1,000 books and opens to the west garden, which contains double- and triple-tiered Italianate fountains.A spacious home theatre room with comfortable furnishings and wide screen surround sound theater, as well as a club room, that takes entertaining to entirely higher levels.A business center, private conference center, and 2,000-square-foot fitness center.Outdoor gardens, situated on top of the parking garage, which are landscaped with mature “instant impact” shrub and tree specimens to completely envelop the building on three sides.A sophisticated security system that combines the latest technology with color cameras, keycard-controlled access points, and a 24-hour security staff to guarantee homeowners’privacy and safety.While the luxury units offer a variety of options to homebuyers, the design, amenities, security, and landscaping make the residents at Mayfair Renaissance feel like royalty in an “Old World” setting unlike most new construction projects today.
