With so many options for student housing in the Midtown area near Georgia Tech, it can be hard to determine what place will be the right fit for you.
While we feel confident that Whistler’s various floor plans, top-notch amenities, and prime location will fit all of your college housing needs, we also know how difficult it can be to compare property options. To help you along in this process, we have conducted a review of another off-campus student housing option, Inspire.
Off-Campus Apartment Review: Inspire
Before anything else, let’s first look into some of the basic details of this east campus property.
Address: 564 Centennial Olympic Park Dr. NW
Year Built: 2021
Number of Beds: 750
Number of Units: 239
Number of Stories: 12
Just past Bobby Dodd Stadium, Inspire is on the border of East Campus, directly across from North Avenue On-Campus student housing.
This East Campus location holds the title of closest off-campus apartment and overlooks both Tech Tower and the football stadium. However, this location is on the west side of I-75/I-85 Downtown, whereas most off-campus housing is located in Midtown. It is a short walk to classes on east campus, about a 5-minute walk from many fraternities and sororities, and 12 minutes from the library and Tech Green.
Like many other off-campus housing options, Inspire provides its residents with several amenities. The conjoined twelve- and seven-story buildings’ rooftop features a resort-style pool and a sunning deck with lounge chairs, bars, grills, and fire pits.
On the inside, entertainment and gaming rooms, flexible study spaces, computer lounges and a business center with free printing are all available to use. Inspire also offers a fitness center and an on-site courtesy officer.
All of these amenities are available to residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you’re planning on bringing a car to school, Inspire offers an onsite four-story parking garage with secured access. Spots in the parking garage come on a first-come, first serve basis and at an additional cost per month.
Pricing and Floor Plans
Inspire offers 1×1, 2×1, 2×2, 4×2, 4×4, 5×3, and 5×5 floor plans at various price points. According to their website at the time of publication, these prices range from around $1,200 to just under $1,900 per month.
These apartments all come fully furnished with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and washer and dryer units.
