While the Midtown development boom is palpable on Peachtree Street and towers rise along Piedmont Park, the southeastern portion of the neighborhood has remained somewhat quiet.
However, Broadstone Midtown—a mid-rise apartment building that replaced a parking lot, an old office building and, contentiously, a beautiful old home—is offering a flash of the new in what’s still development no-man’s land, relatively speaking.
The Lord Aeck Sargent-designed building is pre-leasing in preparation of welcoming its first residents in the next few weeks.
Like most buildings opening in Midtown these days, Broadstone features amenities like a pet spa, a rooftop terrace with glass-edge pool, fire pits, a fitness club, and a “Wi-Fi Library.”
Also, like most buildings, the units won’t come cheap.
The website highlights a 630-square-foot one-bedroom floorplan starting at more than $1,300. Two-bedroom units get up to nearly $2,400.
Renters looking for something beyond the usual one- and two-bedroom units will find townhomes at Broadstone with front doors along Juniper Street that face a row of old hoses turned restaurants.
But Broadstone isn’t the only activity in this section of the neighborhood.
Just down the street, St. Mark United Methodist Church is looking to offload prime real estate along Juniper at 5th Street. A parking lot, two old homes, and even part of the church’s education building could be replaced by development.
