The $63 million Midtown apartment high-rise that recently broke ground has drawn critics for its parking deck design. Here's an updated look at the structure that will stretch along Juniper Street between 6th and 7th streets.
Last week, Midtown Patch posted an updated rendering of the 131 Ponce de Leon Avenue mixed-use project currently under construction in Midtown. Today, Patch is providing an updated rendering of the parking deck for the $63 million high-rise, 100 6th Street, that broke ground last month in Midtown along Juniper Street between 6th and 7th streets. When Patch was first to post renderings last spring, followers of the project were quite critical of the placement and look of the parking deck that will accompany the 23-story, 320-home high-rise apartment project from Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Co. In the time since, the developers have added retail frontage the entire length of Juniper and 6th, and street-level retail turning the …

The $63 million Midtown apartment high-rise immediately creates hundreds of temporary construction jobs and will result in 80-100 long term positions once the 23-story, 320-unit mixed-use project is completed.
Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Co. broke ground Thursday morning on a second environmentally friendly 23-story, 320-home luxury high-rise apartment community in Midtown. The $63 million high-rise 100 6th Street follows SkyHouse Midtown, which opened this month at the corner of West Peachtree and 12th streets. 100 6th Street will stand behind the existing 36-story Viewpoint condo tower. 100 6th Street, which will be built along Juniper Street, will have floor-to-ceiling glass, wood floors, granite countertops, and other features for which Novare Group has been known since the delivery of Metropolis in the summer of 2002.

While the dilapidated former Loca Luna building along 6th Street is currently being demolished, let your mind wander back a decade or so when the Latin-inspired Midtown restaurant was among Atlanta's most popular nighttime spots.
There was a time not long ago that when the moon rose, crazy good times ensued at Loca Luna’s original Midtown location at 836 Juniper Street. The moon set several years on the Loca Luna party and the building that once housed one of Atlanta’s earliest tapas restaurants is almost a memory. An Atlanta favorite, Loca Luna was forced closed on Juniper in 2006 and moved to the Amsterdam Walk district as Novare Group moved in to erect its nearby condo tower, Viewpoint. Now the dilapidated former Loca Luna building along 6th Street between Peachtree and Juniper streets is currently in the process of being demolished to make way for another Novare and Batson-Cook Development Company project, a 23-story 320-unit luxury apartment tower known as 100…

An update on three major construction projects in Midtown Atlanta
It’s nice to see so many cranes in the Midtown skies these days. Three major projects are in mid-construction and a fourth, Novare Group’s “100 6th Street” apartment high-rise, is in the planning stages.
