Along Marietta Street, west of Georgia Tech, a block of low-rise commercial buildings and a gas station turned ramen restaurant have been cleared to make way for a new student housing building.
Branded as Theory West Midtown, the development was announced by Peak Campus last year. Plans call for the 180-unit student housing project to rise at Boss Street, near Northside Drive.
Following the closure of Raku at the end of the year, demolition began on the site. It’s now been fully cleared for construction to commence.
According to permit filings, two buildings will rise on the site.
Each building will boast five stories of residences atop a podium with a leasing office, residential amenities, 10,600 square feet of retail space, and 236 parking spaces.
As is de rigueur these days, residents will enjoy amenities such as a resort-style pool, a rooftop deck (city-spanning views should be exceptional up there), a fitness center, a business center, and dedicated study and conference areas.
The developer indicates the building will house 525 students when complete next year.
