Down the street from Bankhead MARTA Station, a major mixed-use build could be in the offing, as evidenced by recently unveiled renderings.

Tentatively called 1080 DLH, per the project’s online profile, the development would represent a joint venture between Brock Built, DeFoor Ventures, and Sixty-West. It’s one of two substantial mixed-use endeavors the team is planning for Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway.

Named for its address, 1080 DLH would bring 300,000 square feet of high-end office space, 700 apartments, 170,000 square feet of retail, and 120 hotel rooms to the Westside site, which is bounded by North Avenue NW to the west and Finley Avenue to the east.

It’s also just east of the Maddox Park green space.

Construction was initially slated to launch early this year, according to an April 2018 report by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

The development team did not immediately respond to Curbed Atlanta’s inquiries, and the construction timeline is yet unclear.

The project site currently hosts a mishmash of industrial buildings and surface parking, which DeFoor’s site suggests provides a “great opportunity for adaptive-reuse elements.”

The future development would also stand little more than a mile from Bellwood Quarry, where construction crews are now creating part of what could become Atlanta’s largest public green space, the Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry. Another significant proposal in the area is Urban Creek Partners’s Quarry Yards mixed-use community.

Should plans pan out, 1080 DLH would also boast close proximity to a future spur trail of the Beltline.
