By Jatu

At Whistler, we are confident that our variety of floor plans and full suite of amenities will accommodate any Georgia Tech student looking to live in an off-campus apartment. With this being said, we also know that having so many options to choose from can be overwhelming.

If you are looking to live with three of your friends in one of the largest and most exclusive units in Whistler, you’ll want to look at our penthouse floor plans, The Bidez and The Crawford. To help you decide which of these floor plans is right for you, we’ve written this article comparing the two units.

While both units are large, the Crawford bedrooms and bathrooms are bigger, allowing room for walk-in closets and shower/tub combos in each room.

Both floor plans feature large kitchen islands that look over the living room, making entertaining guests while working in the kitchen easy.

Since both are penthouse units, they each offer extra unit features that you cannot find in the other apartments at Whistler. These features include:

  • Burnished brass and matte black fixtures throughout
  • Burnished brass pulls
  • Retro mosaic backsplash
  • Marble-look bathroom flooring
  • White Quartz with veining
  • Wall-mounted smart television

Balconies and Views

The Crawford offers an oversized balcony for you and your roommates to enjoy, while the Bidez offers large floor to ceiling windows in the living room.

Both units are located on the 24th floor facing West Peachtree with views of the Midtown skyline. From the Crawford unit you can even see Stone Mountain.


Both units are on the 24th floor where the rooftop pool deck is located, allowing you to go back and forth from the pool with ease. The Crawford is just steps away from the pool deck making this walk even shorter.

We hope this article has given you a clearer understanding of the differences between the penthouse units at Whistler.
