Need further evidence that Howell Mill Road of 2020 could be a drastically different place?
Have a gander at (the only available rendering for) “Osprey,” a proposal by prominent homebuilder Toll Brothers that would include 319 luxury rentals and 13,000 square feet for restaurants and retail.
It’s planned for a newly assembled site where Howell Mill meets 10th Street, on the southwest corner.
As such, it “will enhance both the corridor’s connectivity and streetscape experience while linking together both the White Provision District and Marietta Street artery,” said a Toll Brothers development official, Stephen Bates, in a press release.
Expect an influx of construction cranes in the area soon.
On the same corridor, within a couple of blocks in either direction, the two-pronged Star Metals Atlanta project is under construction (with a 14-story office stack and separate 400-unit apartment building); meanwhile, a $150 million mixed-use venture called 8 West is eyeing an autumn launch, across the street from Octane Coffee.
All of that, like Osprey, is expected to deliver in 2020.
The Osprey site, officials noted in the release, offers one of Westside’s highest elevations, promising expansive city views from Buckhead to downtown that penthouse dwellers on the two top floors are expected to revel in.
Elsewhere, the usual: “ ... resort-style pool, fitness center, juice bar, gear garage, fitness-on-demand studio, and a sky lounge with a community bar, co-working space, and demonstration kitchen.” Plus, a pet spa and dog park.
Osprey is expected to break ground this summer—and start handing over keys to apartment tenants in early 2020, officials said.
For several months, the prominent corner lot was home to a communal graffiti installation called “The Border Wall”—but that was booted when the land’s sale closed sooner than expected.
Beyond Howell Mill, the site’s about a block, to the west, of attractions such as restaurant Miller Union and the Stockyards project, which includes The Painted Duck.
