Midtown Atlanta District Developments

Martiman thank you so much for the development compilation. It clearly shows how much development has taken place in Midtown in just a few years. 

 

Now for a construction site update....

While Atlanta may not be on national media's radar, it definitely is on the radar of major employers....

Anthem eyes Midtown for technology center, will create more than 1000 jobs.

The Indianapolis based Fortune 50 health insurance firm is eyeing at least three floors in the Bank of America tower to create a technology center. This announcement cone on the heels of a string of technology oriented announcements for the Midtown submarket. With this announcement, recent job announcements for the City of Atlanta will have to be expressed in several thousands as opposed to 100s. I haven't added them up but off my head I can think of at least 8000 jobs announced for Midtown recently. Some of these jobs are transfers from the suburbs to the city. This, of course, will only further cement the necessity for the plethora of residential towers that are either recently completed, under construction or proposed.

The nearly completed Atlantic House......

One Atlantic Center stands tall above the Atlantic House. To the left, the crane of the 39-story Apogee Midtown apartment tower.

The garage of the Atlantic House has turned out better than I had expected. The limestone cladding adds a touch of class to this Novare offering. Once the retail is fully leased, it will definitely add to the pedestrian experience. 

Thanks to Ant131531

I didn't know about this project, so I Googled it and found this rendering.  I'm pretty sure the glass tower to the left is Metropolis and it looks like Bulldogs will remain.

Yes, that is Metropolis to the far left. Above is a rendering of the Peachtree portion of the base of the tower. Below is a picture of the tower portion.

A view from the penthouse level of Viewpoint shows the construction progress of Post Midtown and Apogee (22 14th Street). The recently completed Atlantic House is also shown in this picture. Even at 32 stories, Atlantic House looks so short. Either way, I can't complain about the growing density of Midtown.

Ladies and gentlemen, a look into the future, as I have developed via the humble SketchUp:

In the first image, Midtown as it looks today. In the second, Midtown when all currently under construction buildings are completed. Continued in the post immediately below this one.

Next we have Midtown as it will look if all currently proposed buildings come to pass, and the last image shows what I call "informed speculation" on things like the 17th Street Selig development, the MARTA Arts Center redevelopment, and 12th and Midtown's last phase.

That's a great angle to view Midtown.  It offers a view of nearly every project going up right now.

Two projects that recently broke ground, CODA Tech Square and Hanover Midtown, will add nicely to the skyline from this viewpoint.  But wait! There's more...

The law firm Drew, Eckl & Farnham has officially relocated to downtown, paving the way for demolition of the office building at 880 West Peachtree street.  Of course 880 WP is the site of the apartment project known as Alexan Midtown so there may be movement on yet another tower proposal soon.

What's the housing market in midtown look like? Approx price range for a 2br apt or condo? Are there single family homes in the immediate vicinity? We are looking to move to ATL in the coming years and driving through Midtown the activity is great!

Midtown has the among highest average rents in Atlanta but that's probably because it has the most new apartments.  I don't know about the typical price range but the new buildings to me are crazy expensive.  For condos, there is a wide range of prices but not a lot of inventory so its a seller's market and prices have been on the rise. A 2br in a newer building will be in $300-400's.

Thanks. I guess once more of the new buildings start coming online and inventory has some breathing room maybe prices won't be as crazy. We went and looked at a foreclosure multi family unit today as an investment property that had been on the market just 11 days and it was already under contract. No surprise really, it literally backs up to Piedmont Park.

As of today, heavy equipment is on site, trees are being removed, and silt fencing is being installed.
