Three major projects are underway in West Midtown district that will transform the Midtown experience. There are five other reciprocal developments that are also in progress. Most of these developments are a “stone’s throw” away from each other, which should provide a synergistic atmosphere in the area.
The Works 1235 Chattahoochee Ave. NW Atlanta, GA 30318: Atlanta developer Selig has committed to a long-term plan for this 80-acre project, which will transform 40 historical structures to retail, residential and “creative office space”.
Star Metals 1050 Howell Mill Atlanta, GA 30318: “Iconic Architecture” and 185,000 SF of class A office space is being promoted by the developer. This project promises to take live, work, play to a higher level with unparalleled amenities offered to residential, retail, and office tenants.
The Interlock Corner of Howell Mill Rd. & 14 St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30318: This mixed-use development is to include hotel and single-family homes. Notably, this venture is set to include a Georgia Tech program that will control 25% of the office space for use to promote and grow tech start-ups in the southeast.
Phases for these projects are scheduled to begin in 2020, with overall completion expected in 5-10 years.
The four of the five other developments, Osprey, and 8 West, 788 West Midtown, and Inland Tract all have similar timelines. While comparable to The Works, Star Metals and The Interlock will not be as substantial in size.
Another project which has not yet broken ground, is a massive mixed-use development, Quarry Yards. This venture should get underway sometime in the second quarter of 2019.
We think this is certain to keep the area growing for the next several years. With the only concerns being the impeding traffic, and no direct access to the east west corridor. As expected, this expansion of West Midtown will appeal to the pioneer companies who seeking to attract young tech workers that prefer in-town living. This young talent pool is already nearby at Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Morehouse, Spellman, Emory, and University of Georgia, graduating just over 60,000 students per year.
