In a move that could send another residential jolt through downtown Atlanta, Post Properties wants to revive plans for an apartment community across the street from Centennial Olympic Park. Post brought early plans for a 407-unit project called "Centennial Park Apartments" before the downtown Development Review Committee last week, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports.
The community would rise on land Post has owned for years — a site bounded by Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Baker, Williams and Simpson streets, near the World of Coke attraction — and could feature a decidedly more brownstone vibe than other new apartments across Atlanta. (If memory serves, Post's earlier vision for this site was a single high-rise tower.) Should these apartments come to fruition, they'd join ongoing residential projects near Georgia State University, Paces Properties' proposed apartment flip for the vacant 250 Piedmont office tower and, as the newspaper reports, plans to add 125 apartments to a new Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel on Marietta Street, near STATS restaurant. When it comes to apartment living, is downtown the next Historic Fourth Ward Park?
