Mandarin Oriental Condos in Buckhead

The Residences at Waldorf Astoria Atlanta opened at the beginning of May 2008. The ultra-luxurious tower was designed by brilliant/ noted architect Robert A. M. Stern and consists of a 42-story tower with 127 hotel rooms and 45 3,000- to 10,600-square-foot residences. Most of the units will have two bedrooms, but owners may alter the layouts of their condos and have little restrictions when designing their space. Many units are the entire floor. There are three Garden Villas facing an English Garden courtyard adjacent to the hotel.. Residents have their own entrance on Stratford Road and all units have private balconies, some are octagonal shaped depending on what floor you are on.

The building is a poured-in-place concrete structure with precast and castone skin and punched aluminum and thermal window openings. The parking levels are conventionally reinforced concrete. The hotel levels up through level 14 are post-tension reinforced concrete, then on level 15, there is a unique transfer truss system that’s literally the size of some bridge steel you see on roadways. This was to transfer column loads from the narrower portions of the building to the wider portions of the building. So, there are structural steel girders introduced into a concrete frame to transfer the load of the weight of the narrower building above down to the wider building columns below. Then, above level 15, where the condos are, conventional reinforced concrete was used.

What does this mean for a prospective buyer? Let’s say you want to purchase 2 units stacked on top of each other on the 42nd and 43rd floors. In almost every condo building in Atlanta you can buy the two units, but you would never be able to connect them. At The Residences at Waldorf Astoria Atlanta, you can simply cut away part of the floor and add an elevator or grand staircase without worrying about cutting a post-tension tendon because you’re just cutting through the rebar. If you want to have your bathroom in a certain spot, no problem. Just tell your interior designer and architect where you want everything. That is the beauty of this building. There are no limitations. This is the main reason why the units are sold as shells.
