The largest of three projects Chicago-based developer CA Ventures is pushing forward in Midtown and Buckhead appears to be nearing takeoff.
Where Peachtree meets Eighth Street, the developer has filed for permits to develop a 33-story mix of residences where low-rise restaurant buildings now stand.
Paperwork filed last week seeks to get the ball rolling on land development at the property and demolish the structures housing eateries Bezoria and Noodle, the Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported.
The tower’s being referred to as “903 Peachtree.”
Bezoria’s owner told What Now Atlanta he’s been kept in the dark about development plans, but that both restaurants would likely have to relocate—unable to wait out construction phases and reopen at 903 Peachtree’s base.
The tower’s 417 units would be market-rate apartments and not condos, developers previously told Midtown officials. It would rise on the southeast corner of Peachtree and Eighth.
Renderings and property records indicate the Bulldogs building at 893 Peachtree Street would not be impacted, though the longstanding bar would be virtually surrounded by towers, including the 29-story Hanover Midtown nearing completion next door.
Elsewhere in Midtown, CA Ventures has pitched a 27-story building for 699 Spring Street—near the Varsity and just south of the Coda project—that would be geared toward Georgia Tech students.
With a planned 715 student beds, that development would join a high-rise wave of student-focused projects in the vicinity, including The Standard next door and 28-story The Mark tower that’s replacing a Dominos up the street.
The company is also planning a 22-story apartment tower in Buckhead Village.
