According to a NewTown Macon news release, the Capricorn Centre site will include 30 townhouses, a five-story residential and commercial building, and an 85-room "boutique hotel."

The project will also include what NewTown calls "an adaptive reuse" of the Macon Rescue Mission and the old Capricorn Recording Studio buildings, where the Allman Brothers and other Macon-based musicians created hits in the 1970s.

The 4.2-acre site is located between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Fifth Street, between Poplar, Plum and Pine streets.
