Hi Everyone - I am considering purchasing a condo in the plaza midtown and was wondering if anyone here could give some insight into the building in terms of the community, noise level, internet quality, etc. I did a search and read the older posts but was hoping someone could give some fresh perspective!

You are wise to ask these questions ahead of time before you buy in The Plaza or anywhere frankly.
As far as noise goes, be aware that the noise factor from outside can vary according to the side of the building a unit is situated on & which direction it would face outside, as in toward noise from the connector versus noise from W. Peachtree St. for instance.
I am not a sound sleeper & learned from years of petsitting in midtown high rises that noise can be a HUGE factor & can vary tremendously in a building depending on the street the unit faces.
Also, proximity to routes that ambulances or fire trucks & their wailing sirens regularly use is important, especially in the middle of the night.

I lived there from 2008-2010, over in the building at 950 West Peachtree St. It's a great building - nice big units and loved that it had the Publix downstairs - but if you're talking about outdoor noise, then yes, you can expect to hear noise from the bars & restaurants below, especially on the weekends. When I left there in 2010, there were several rentals on my floor that seemed to attract students from Georgia Tech, so every so often I'd hear running up and down the hallway - late night parties, etc. There wasn't much sense of community from my experience - mostly people coming & going, even with the concierges.

I've since moved to Aqua and I'll tell you that it's a much quieter & more private building. It skews more towards the mid 40s professionals versus the college crowd that seemed to be moving in at Plaza Midtown. It's a smaller building and the HOA is pretty active - they host a lot of social events, so it's easy to meet people - everyone knows each other, but you can still keep a low profile if you want to
