The Athena is an odd duck of a high-rise. Built in 1966 by the same Hal Anderson who developed Preston Tower, the Athena was originally marketed as a luxury property. The units are large — four center 2/2 units with 1,543 square feet and four corner 3/3 units with 1,899 square feet (there are a handful of small units on the fourth floor that no one talks about). Darn near all units have (unfortunately) enclosed all or part of their luxe balconies adding another 227 potential square feet to the mix.
However, its more recent history has not been as glamorous. Since 2002, units cracking the $200-per-square-foot mark might be counted on your hands. Why? The recession, but in part because the Pink Wall in general has not kept up with the times, and even more partially, units had not kept pace either.
