Could new 40-plus story towers be bound for the booming Atlanta subdistrict?

A handful of developers eyeing a spot in the Midtown skyline are vying for a blessing from the neighborhood’s planning leaders.

This evening, Midtown’s Development Review Committee is scheduled to assess four major proposals, three of which promise to make a mark on the fast-growing subdistrict—assuming developers can jump through all necessary hoops, from governmental and financial perspectives, to break ground.

First among the taller proposals is 960 Spring Street, at the corner of Peachtree Place, where officials from Kimley-Horn and Harthorn Plankard Architecture aim to erect a 20-story student housing tower with nearly 800 beds.

The 278-unit structure is also slated to feature 5,600 square feet of retail space at the ground level, as well as a seven-story parking deck.

Next on the docket is another sizable project by The Hanover Company: a proposed 40-story mixed-use development at 1230 West Peachtree Street.

The tower would comprise 8,600 square feet of retail space, more than 258,000 square feet of office space, and 328 residences spanning almost 400,000 square feet.

Last but not least—a project that’s been teased for years—a 46-story mixed-use tower by developer Trillist would squeeze between Peachtree Street and Crescent Avenue where they both meet 13th Street.

(Updated on December 10, 2019 at 3:15 p.m.: The Trillist project is no longer on the agenda of this evening’s DRC meeting, Midtown Alliance officials told Curbed Atlanta.)

The Smallwood-designed building would contain more than 300 residences, a few floors—10,000 square feet—of retail at its base, and a nine-story parking podium.

Additionally, “a colonnaded primary pedestrian entrance is provided from Peachtree Street,” according to DRC documents.

The project, as presented, would require two one-way drives along Peachtree Street and a curb-cut on Crescent Street.

All of these plans are subject to change, based on the DRC’s input.
