1500 Tara Place: “The Most Prestigious Address In Motorsports” (circa 1992)

Following a major renovation at Atlanta Motor Speedway, some forward-thinking real estate developers decided to build a condominium complex adjacent to the grandstand. 1500 Tara Place is, technically, the address for the track, too–which is odd. The condos still stand today, even though they function more as corporate club-level boxes than anything else. I honestly don’t know who would pay $800k to live in a condo in Hampton, GA when they could buy an estate house in an adjacent neighborhood for less than half that price! Even the main selling point–the fact that it overlooks the track–is only good for a couple weekends a year! For the money, I think I’d rather buy a helicopter to fly in on race weekends.
