A developer is seeking to build a mixed-use project on Atlanta’s Westside that would bring 343 apartments and 25,479 square feet of sidewalk-level commercial space to Howell Mill Road between 9th and 10th streets northwest.
The 1.26-acre property is an assemblage of several parcels on the east side of Howell Mill in the Marietta Street Artery neighborhood. Currently, the property is home to a former church, a parking lot and “aging low-rise” buildings, according to a rezoning application filed with the city, which seeks to rezone the property to mixed residential and commercial from light industrial.
The application notes the rapid pace of development in the area over the last 10 years, adding that construction of the proposed project would be in keeping with nearby developments, such as Star Metals Residences, Star Metals Offices, The Interlock, 8West and The Osprey, which is directly across Howell Mill.
The application anticipates a mix of rental units, including 130 studios with expected monthly rents of $1,600, 116 one-bedroom units with rents of $2,000 and 97 two-bedroom apartments with rents of $2,400 to $2,500 per month. The property will have a parking deck for residents.
The applicant, Austin, Texas-based AC Residential Partners LLC, which could not be reached for comment, put the anticipated marketing date of the units at June 2024. The rezoning application is set to go before the Atlanta Zoning Review Board on Jan. 6 or 13, 2022.
