It looks like another surface parking lot will soon meet its demise in Midtown. Ambling University Development Group has submitted a building permit application to construct a 19-story "Spring Street Housing" project for Georgia Tech students, What Now Atlanta reports. The plans call for two stories more than the stack of 17 stories initially proposed, and renderings suggest the "GT" logo will feature prominently at street level. The $48 million project will offer 268 units — with 706 beds — and more than 10,000 square feet of street retail. The project is scheduled to open in fall 2015. Ambling is currently building two downtown projects aimed at Georgia State University students, including an 18-story tower.
