Atlanta, GA, May 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you are looking for that perfect Midtown Atlanta location to call home, you'd better hurry to The Atlantic before these new residences are fully leased!

Since opening its doors in March as a rental building, The Atlantic has quickly leased over 1/3 of the homes, including six of the exclusive penthouse suites. 

The Atlantic (270 17th Street, Atlanta) is an Art Deco inspired architectural marvel soaring 47 stories over the heart of Atlanta's Midtown - the tallest residential high-rise in the area and an instantly recognizable jewel in the city skyline.

"The interest in The Atlantic has been tremendous.  We have seen almost 350 people come through our doors in the first 60 days," said Yaakov Litvin, Property Manager of The Atlantic. "There is a true 'wow factor' when you enter the building.  The amenities, the location, the views - The Atlantic has it all."

Previously, homes at the city's quintessential address were only available for purchase. Midtown Residences, LLC, a single-purpose entity who is part of a group of companies permitted to use the Crescent Heights® trade name, acquired the property and is offering Atlanta's most exclusive high-rise homes for immediate lease.

There are 324 never-before-occupied homes available for lease starting at just over $2,000 a month.   The Atlantic offers a choice of six unique floor plans with over 50 options to suit every kind of lifestyle.  The spacious homes range in size from a 1-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom, 1,240 square foot home, to a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom residence with over 2,100 square feet of living space.

There are also a total of 12 luxury penthouse suites available, six of which have already been leased.  The largest ones, 2-story stunners, have over 3,100 square feet with a large master suite and sitting area, and features multiple balconies, as well as a kitchen that opens to a spacious living room and dining room.

The dramatic living spaces are filled with features found only in the finest homes; floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, 10 to 11-foot ceilings, designer, gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, elegant cabinetry, granite countertops and walk-in showers.  The jaw-dropping balcony views are a breathtaking bonus.       

Living at The Atlantic features resort-style amenities including a state-of-the art fitness facility; a rooftop sundeck with pool and spa; a clubroom with flat-screen TVs;  a private screening room for movies and sporting events; high-speed internet; and a business center with iMac computer kiosks.  

The Atlantic is nestled in the heart of the vibrant Atlantic Station redevelopment, surrounded by the bustle of sidewalk cafes, world-class restaurants, parks, shopping, performing arts and exciting nightlife, and a myriad of special events going on every week of the year. Freeway access is a mere two blocks away. Downtown, Buckhead, the MARTA and sporting events at the Philips Arena and Georgia Dome are a five to ten minute drive.

The Atlantic is located at 270 17th Street, Atlanta, GA, 30363.  The Atlantic is the third acquisition of class A multifamily Atlanta real estate to join the Crescent Heights® group of companies, following on the heels of The Vue at Park Towers and Lenox Hills.
