The reinvention of a 1970s concrete block across from Emory Midtown Hospital is nearly complete

Construction is nearing an end on Peachtree Street at Linden Avenue, as the transformation into apartments of dated former housing for nurses pushes toward completion.

Poised across the street from Emory Midtown Hospital, the Byron, as the building has been christened, will feature 65 units, with one- and two-bedroom options available. The building has come a long way since last fall, when it was little more than a gutted shell.

Each floor features six two-bedroom units and four one-bedroom units. All units have high ceilings, a balcony, sleek modern kitchens with glass-tile backsplashes and granite countertops. And Nest thermostats.

One-bedroom units are either 712 or 724 square feet each, and will start at around $1,350 per month. Two-bedroom layouts range from 932 to 1,023 square feet each, and will start between $1,915 and $2,095 per month.

There’s no news yet as to what restaurants or retail will fill the adjacent properties, but the pending closure of the Peachtree-Pine shelter—located just a block away—will likely be a boon for the project as it readies to open.
