The Emory

Rising above its neighboring buildings, this sliver of a 15-story condominium building contributes to the sawtooth streetscape of the Ladies’ Mile Historic District with a contemporary design that reflects the neighborhood’s eclectic array of turn-of-the century structures, which includes former stables, rowhouses, and department stores. Its clear tripartite division, defined by a limestone base, simple modern cornice, and glazed gray brick cladding surrounding a zinc-detailed central bay, was inspired by the white brick and stone Neoclassical facades found through the district, many of which were designed by architects who worked on the 1893 Columbia Exposition — also known as “The White City.” The Emory’s 14 full-floor units all feature at least two exposures, keyed elevator access, and a private terrace; the duplex penthouse also has access to a 1,000-square-foot private roof terrace.
