The company behind a development that promises to urbanize a section of Howell Mill Road announced today that key financing is in place, while unveiling renderings that show what the upscale residential portion should bring.

The Allen Morris Company has closed on a $90 million construction loan for Star Metals Residences, the westernmost component of mixed-use Star Metals Atlanta, set to rise on either side of Howell Mill.

Upon entering the Residences, expect a “double height, curtainwall glass lobby activated with [a] high-end F&B concept.”

The 1050 Howell Mill Road project—designed by Oppenheim Architecture and Dwell Design Studio, with interior designs by Atlanta’s ever-busy Square Feet Studio—is set to bring 409 luxury apartments and 16,300 square feet of retail. Plus a private outdoor dog run, Uber drop-off for residents, and a cozy library.

Across the street, the 14-story Star Metals Offices will total 260,000 square feet, which includes 35,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, officials said.

At the Residences, on what’s called the Level 9 Rooftop, expect amenities that include (deep breath), “lounge/meeting rooms, indoor/outdoor activated rooftop bar and lounge, game room area with pool table, gaming systems and arcade games, outdoor ping-pong and bocce ball, a glass-box fitness center opening onto the pool terrace, outdoor grilling area, outdoor movie projection area, outdoor fire pits and seating groups,” per developers.

Construction has begun on Star Metals’s residential phase, and site work is expected to launch on the office component the first week of August.

This highly detailed, fly-through preview on YouTube (below) is definitely worth a look, although it shows the Residences with neighboring blues institution Northside Tavern removed.

All indications have been that Northside Tavern will remain.
