W Residences Atlanta Downtown wins Design Excellence Award

November 11, 2009
W Residences Atlanta Downtown won the Atlanta Downtown Design Excellence Award November 10th, which honors Downtown businesses for their design innovations during this past year.

The award winners are determined by a panel of judges including design, planning, and development experts, and, just as important, the public. Public opinion is one of the factors that the judges consider in selecting the winners. 

Design Excellence VideoBegun by developer Barry Real Estate Companies in 2005 with the intention of bringing an iconic building to the $2 billion Allen Plaza neighborhood on the edge of Centennial Olympic Park, the W Atlanta Downtown is designed by internationally acclaimed, New Haven-Connecticut-based architects Pickard Chilton Architects (designers of 1180 Peachtree and The Pinnacle in Buckhead).

Interiors are by renowned Toronto-based BurdiFilek. The project was under construction and substantially completed throughout 2009, with its doors officially opened to the public in January 2009.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer breathtaking views of a vibrant city. One lingering gaze and you’ll see how 10-foot ceilings give acclaimed designer BurdiFilek® more room to craft an awe-inspiring interior. 

If that’s not enough (and it never is) 14-foot wide balcony provides ample opportunity for private outdoor entertainment, a moment of relaxation or just a closer look at the city’s infinite detail.


Residential amenities include: Crestron and Lutron automation systems, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, Alno cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances and Bang & Olufsen audio/visual systems. The 28-floor tower features 237 guest rooms, 74 private condos, a rooftop helipad, and the 3,500-squarefoot Bliss Spa. Prices at W Atlanta Residences – which features just 74 homes – now start in the mid $200s.
