A mixed-use project just south of the Westside Provisions District will bring luxury multifamily residential units, street-level retail, and office space to West Midtown.
Called Star Metals Atlanta, the development is a partnership between Paces Properties and The Allen Morris Company, according to a news release.
The $215 million mixed-use development will be located at 1050 & 1055 Howell Mill Road and is the first joint venture between Paces Properties and The Allen Morris Company. Paces Properties will handle the selection and leasing for the ground-floor restaurant and retail components.
Its architecture, designed by Oppenheim Architecture + Design, reflects the historical composition and materials of the old rail yards West Midtown is known for historically. The area was once the primary terminus for rail traffic in the Eastern U.S.
Star Metals Residences at 1050 Howell Mill Road will feature 409 rental units and promises to capture the vibe of the Westside neighborhood. Amenities will include a rooftop club room and a state-of-the-art rooftop amenity deck, theater, Bocce ball court, Yoga studio, poolside movies at night, community garden and greenhouse where residents can gather.
The residence building will also include 16,500 square feet of ground-floor retail for restaurants and services. No specific restaurants have been named yet.
The 14-story Star Metals Offices at 1055 Howell Mill Road will offer approximately 185,000 square feet of office space, 30,000 square feet street-level retail with 22’ ceilings, ground-floor restaurants, collaboration work spaces and structured parking. The offices will provide outdoor terraces, a rooftop restaurant/bar and views of Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown.
Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2016, according to Atlanta INtown.
