Quartet of Midtown Projects is Moving Toward Approvals

New, 15 comments

As if 40+ projects weren't enough for Midtown, the October meeting of the Midtown Development Review Committee brings the announcement of four more developments in the neighborhood. Ranging from offices to dorms to residential, the projects are all relatively small, maxing out at eight stories. But with a variety of uses (including condos!!!!), the impact could be big.

1: 208 12th St.
This pint-sized apartment building will fill a single residential lot with 10 units and a ground floor coffee shop. Brought to being by Elmhurst Capital, the four-story building will replace an older home on the site, upping the residential density in the neighborhood near Piedmont Park.

2: 715 Peachtree St.
Real estate developers Carter are seeking approval to renovate a 340,000-square-foot dated 10-story office building in South Midtown, including the addition of new street level retail space and a refreshed plaza along Peachtree Street. The building is located across 3rd Street from the recently announced JPX Works developed high-rise residential building (which is already rocketing toward realization).

3: Spring House
Located on Spring Street behind the Peachtree SCAD building, the proposal would see the replacement of an aging suburban-style hotel currently used as dorms, with a new 500-bed dorm. At six stories, the proposal would include street-front retail and better tie the campus into the urban fabric of the neighborhood.

4: 238 14th St.
Featuring 14 units — billed as boutique — spread across eight floors, the proposal is one of the first post-Recession condo offerings in the neighborhood. The modern-leaning building, proposed by Kim King Associates, would rise on an empty lot between the Windsor Midtown and an old house.
