ATLANTA (Oct. 16, 2012) – One CityPlace, part of a planned massive condo compound, never got off the ground. But it still rises high above a fallow field at Roxboro and East Paces Ferry roads.
The vacant sales office, however, tells passersby that the project never happened. (In photo at left, the building on the right is real.)
In an Oct. 5, 2009, story about the lender taking back the CityPlace property, Atlanta Business Chronicle dubbed it "the largest condo project ever planned in Buckhead." It's clearly the largest model of something never built.
In the 2009 story, the same model is seen in the photo that accompanied commercial real estate rpeorter Doug Sams' story.
That means the model remains on Roxboro more than three years after the project was scrapped. Some graffiti exists on the sides, but overall it's in great shape. I hope to see it available on eBay soon.
