Westside Atlanta Slated for 2 Unique Buildings

Residential, mixed-use projects could bring high design to the booming 'hood

This year is shaping up to be a big one for the Westside. Two more transformative projects could soon be on the way on Howell Mill Road, just south of Westside Provisions District.

According to What Now Atlanta, developer Allen Morris is planning two refreshingly unique Westside buildings. The designs might not win universal applause, but they certainly make the cookie-cutter, mixed-use mushrooms sprouting across Atlanta seem uninspired.

The first project, located on the west side of Howell Mill Road, would bring 407 residential units and retail space to three acres behind Northside Tavern. Standing nine stories, the building — designed by Oppenheim Architecture + Design and Dwell Design Studio — is slated to feature luxury amenities that include a yoga studio, lounge, pool bar, outdoor kitchen, community garden, and deck with views of Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead.

Across the street, on the site of eyesore Star Metals, the developer plans a glassy mixed-use project. Featuring a mix to include offices, apartments, restaurants, and (hopefully) a grocery store, the terraced building would be a distinctive compliment to its neighbor. And with an estimated price tag of $210 million, a major investment in a booming area.
