The construction process on some of Atlanta’s new buildings can be glacially slow, but one new Midtown apartment development seems to be moving at warp speed.
Just a few months ago, the site at 1270 Spring St. was little more than a mound of dirt with a few concrete columns protruding. Since then, construction progress has been surprisingly swift on the six-story development.
With framing nearly complete on the side facing Spring Street, and work moving quickly on the western facade too, the 259-unit building is on track for completion in early 2018.
In addition to the apartment units, the project will also bring 11,330 square feet of retail—including a unit with a drive-thru—to the block bounded by Spring, Williams, and 16th streets.
Designed by Lord Aeck Sargent, the venture could infuse some much-needed life to northern Spring and William streets, which have long been dominated by parking decks and service drives.
