Hey, if it's good enough for billionaire Bob Johnson and millionaire Jeff Gordon, it's good enough for us. Yeah, you've gotta shell out some green to live in these fab uptown condos -- with soaring ceilings and walls of glass -- but it could be worth it to live in a place that abuts a cute park like the Green. Bonus: convenient access to Aquavina. (Distant runners-up: Fourth Ward; Tryon House Apartments.)
