Earlier this month developers filed plans with the city to build a 23-story 320-unit luxury apartment tower in Midtown called 100 6th Street. Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Company hope to have the mixed-use, which will stand behind the existing 36-story Viewpoint condo tower, completed by no later than 2014.
The project will follow the 23-story 320-unit high-rise apartment building called SkyHouse Midtown that Novare and Batson-Cook are currently developing at the corner of West Peachtree and 12th streets. Some critics have been quite vocal about the parking decks associated with both projects.
Here in a recent video from Immovable Media Inc., see the current progress of SkyHouse Midtown and two more prominent Midtown construction projects. What do you think?
SkyHouse Midtown also will include 8,400 square feet of ground-level retail space (mostly facing 12th) in addition to the free-standing parking deck. It will boast Atlanta’s tallest amenity deck, have a pool 230 feet above street level, and provide 360-degree unimpeded views of Atlanta’s skyline. Construction is expected to be completed by December of this year or in early 2013.
Also in the video is the 12-story, dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Hotel at the corner of Williams and 10th streets. Combined, the hotels will have 226 units and will feature a 110-seat restaurant and lounge.
The first four stories of the property will be parking and the hotels will occupy floors 5 through 12. Access to the hotels, which should open in early 2013, will be from Williams Street and guests will exit onto 10th Street.
And not far away, Daniel Corporation and Selig Enterprises are in the process of delivering 77 12th Street, a 22-story, 330-unit apartment tower that will have 20,000 square feet of ground-level retail space curve along 12th Street and Crescent Avenue. It’s set to be complete by early 2013 and is Phase III of the 12th and Midtown development. Recently, a video was posted at YouTube entitled 12th & Midtown Construction Time-lapse (Phase One & Two).
Take 66 seconds to watch the time-lapse construction of 1010 Midtown, 10 Sixty Five Midtown, and 1075 Peachtree. It’s pretty darn cool; has a good beat.
