The Ponce Condominium

Map to Location

There is a famous intersection at the corner of Peachtree Street and Ponce De Leon Avenue. The historical gems that reside here are the fabulous Fox Theatre, the Georgian Terrace Hotel and the Ponce Condominiums. William Stoddart built the Ponce Apartments in 1913 following his great success as an architect for the Georgian Terrace Hotel in 1911. It was the first high-rise apartment building in Atlanta. From its glorious lobby with a Louis C. Tiffany ceiling to the rooftop belvederes, the Ponce is a shining example of Italian Renaissance palazzo-style architecture. Learn the varied and eclectic history of both the building and its residents.
