The Spring Street project is further proof that housing for Atlanta scholars isn’t what it used to be

A rooftop pool deck, tanning booths, an indoor golf simulator, and an arcade.

Such are the amenities being offered at Landmark Properties’s under-construction The Mark, a student housing tower that’s expected to finish its ascent soon in Midtown.

At the corner of Spring and 10th streets, the 28-story tower is slated to top out February 21, Landmark assistant project manager Patrick Fitzgerald told Curbed Atlanta this week.

Like nearby student-housing ventures University House and Square on Fifth before it, The Mark is promising amenities your parents never had at their college dorms or apartments.

The Mark at Atlanta is poised to offer nearly 800 beds for intown scholars from Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Georgia State.

A rendering shows the ground floor of the tower, which has the words “The Mark at Atlanta” above the entrance.
A few thousand square feet of retail and restaurant space will operate at the foot of the building.

Expect studios spanning about 500 square feet with starting rents of $1,485 and 2,300-square-foot, six-bedroom units—yes, two-floor, six-bedroom options for college kids—that rent for about $1,400 per room—and everything in between.

Projected to debut just before the fall semester, the tower will also feature four-bedroom, four-bath penthouse suites that rent for about the same rate as the six-bed option.

Those units would also flaunt living room pool tables—a staple of any outlandish student housing complex.

At the 10th floor, the sky deck is going to feature a pool and a Jumbotron, Fitzgerald said.

That floor will also serve as the amenity deck, replete with workout facilities, billiards, and more.

The new tower stands a few blocks north of Landmark Properties’s other student housing complex, The Standard at Atlanta, which offers equally lavish amenities.
