Come this time next year, Atlanta’s Westside could look drastically different.
On the “Upper Westside,” construction of the $40 million mixed-use Westside Village is underway, and on the ever-bustling Howell Mill Road, the $90 million Star Metals Atlanta residential project is set to break ground in a few days, joining a 14-story office tower across the street.
Now, a $150 million investment by Atlantic Capital Properties and Gateway Ventures is moving forward at the corner of Howell Mill and 8th Street.
Called “8 West,” it’s expected to bring 175,000 square feet of office space spanning nine floors, 10,000 square feet of retail, and 264 apartments, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
The project is being designed by MSTSD and ASD|SKY, and the apartments would be developed by Trammell Crow Residential, the newspaper reported.
The 8 West plans call for a 680-space parking deck, but the development would also boast drop-off points for rideshare services, as well as storage and repair options for bicycles, according to ABC. (The Beltline’s Northside Trail, it’s worth noting, would be a short bike ride away).
Popular businesses neighboring the 4-acre project site, such as Bocado, Bartaco, and Arden’s Garden, would ultimately be incorporated into 8 West.
Additionally, the Hathaway Gallery will reportedly move into the mixed-use project and provide artwork for the development.
Construction on 8 West could kick off as soon as October, per the ABC, and the whole shebang is slated for 2020 delivery.
