The dual-purpose tower is bringing new life to a former Midtown Mile parking lot

Large-scale construction on Seventh Street, between Juniper and Peachtree streets, is in full swing, as a long-anticipated, 29-story building begins its rise from a former parking lot.

Hanover Midtown, as the project is currently known, will bring eight stories of office and retail to Peachtree Street, with 342 residences planned for a tower at the eastern edge of the site, along Juniper Street.

Work is progressing quickly on the Juniper Street side of the site, with five floors of parking already poured. On the narrower Peachtree Street side, only tall concrete columns tell of progress.

The infusion of more than 40,000 square feet of office space is a break from the norm in the neighborhood, with buildings south of 10th Street predominantly devoted exclusively to residences, retail, and hospital use.

Also, the placement of the tall tower toward the Juniper Street side of the site, pushed back from the Peachtree corridor, is a relatively unique choice as well.

When complete, the snaking glass tower—not unlike its sister in Buckhead—will stand out from its more boxy neighbors.

According to a sign posted on the site, the building is set to deliver in winter 2018.
