Anyone want to take a guess as to how many floors this baby will be? 347,000 sq ft. This is the lot next to the Hampton Inn.

A proposal my firm looked at was 9 stories at about 230,000 sf (nearly breaking the skyplane). I would guess this would be around 14 stories depending on the footprint.

I agree 10-15 stories although I would like to see 20!

Very exciting project. Now lets see if it ever gets built as we have been very disappointed lately with the Westin, WES, Signature, Lionstone, Griffin Plaza, Sounds Struever Bros Project, Eakin Twin Towers, The "W" Hotel, Pine Street Lofts, etc...

Here was my pitch. This was before it was bought by someone else, though.

Good find. I like the green tinge on that building!

It's not a find. It's just something I did.

And for reference, that was nearly 200,000 sf and was 9 stories.

That is a nice "faux" rendering and yes, it could be twice that size. The views of the park, West End, Vanderbilt etc...will be stunning from the top of that building.

First mistake: Using the word "just." Second mistake, not using the word "impressive." That's an awesome render. Add 4-7 stories at different places, make it more The West End-y and I think it's a winner.

Sorry, should have clarified. The "find" I was referring to was the project. I still like that rendering!

I hope the new project is a lot more street friendly. Elliston Place is in a vibrant, walkable community and needs more provisions for retail businesses and entertainment venues accessible directly from the street.

I know this is an incessant mantra used by some to criticize all office block projects to a point where it just becomes silly. But in this area, the demand for such services is high. There are very few street fronts near here where there is no retail on the major roads. However, in the Mid-town/Vanderbilt area, if you build it,they will come.

I am disappointed in only six stories, not much of a view of Vanderbilt, Centennial Park, or the Parthenon, but its better than the vacant lot. At six stories, it should have some nice detailed human scale architecture and better than some of the other apartment buildings in the area.

This is a key site for improving the character and direction this mix use area is heading. A six story building is an reasonable scale building for the area at this time. If the program is for about 300 apartments that would be a great addition to this transitional midtown area. Hopefully the building will build up to the sidewalk and have the parking structure totally hidden in the rear. The area has a good start in mix use and is walkable to Vanderbilt, Baptist, and the park. Hopefully if this project happens it will a more urban site plan than the adjacent suburban looking hampton inn. Apartments at this time are in demand and are economically feasible.

Yeah disappointed with the height, but how tall is the building with Flemmings, B&N, etc.? Definitely welcome in the area.

The rendering is in today's Tennessean. They say six stories which would say it will be a concrete building. I think 5 stories is the limit for stick frame (lumber) construction. I think its a nice rendering.

Is it only in the print edition? Can't find it online.

Here's the rendering from the paper. Sorry about the quality; it was a small image on newsprint. I'm guessing a building of this size and as long as it is will be quite impressive. The 500 or so folks basing their lives there will do much to further activate the street...probably in ways Elliston has never yet seen. Quite a welcome addition.

Nice.. thanks, Dave.

I'm guessing this would be similar in size to Velocity.

MTFAN Can you be a little more specific than "na"? Please clarify what you mean for a conducive discussion.

Thanks!

      New apartment complex coming to a six-acre plot of land. Rent will range from about $600-1,000, and eventually single-family homes will be built nearby.

      I'm guessing this is right off the Campostella Bridge, across from the Hardee's. There used to be a Farm Fresh there overlooking the water.

      Hey All,
      I'm moving from Boston to Tallahassee for a job that may be as short as 1 month or as long as 10 months. I think an extended stay hotel in Tallahassee could be a good option for me. The Value Place chain has two locations in the city, which is about $800 or so a month. Does anyone else have a recommendation for other extended stay hotels between $700-$900 in the area?

      Statesboro seems to be bouncing back for some industry sectors - particularly multi-family construction as four major projects are now underway. One project is currently under construction, while three others are slated to begin construction in 2012. Hopefully these new projects will provide a multiplier effect for other industries to benefit as well. Several things have probably contributed to these new development - Georgia Southern University's explosive growth is definitely one obvious factor as the school has surpassed the 20,000 enrollment mark. Other local colleges have also surpasses previous enrollment records including East Georgia College which is currently building a new campus in Statesboro, as well as Ogeechee Technical College which is likely looking at major expansion soon as well (I understand they have broken their previous enrollment records).

      The Forum - 780 bedrooms - is a luxury apartment complex by Boca-Raton based Parkland Development Corporation currently under construction in on Old Register Road. The complex will feature 1/1, 2/2, 3/3, and 4/4 bedroom/bathroom layouts. This complex is obviously geared towards students and is expected to open in Summer 2012.

      I don't know much about The Monarch Douglas - 450 bedrooms, except that the name is very strange in my opinion.

      The Varsity Lodge - 500 bedrooms - sounds exciting to me because they will be demolishing a worn-down complex with the same name and rebuilding new 4-story units in the same location. Out with the old and in with the new. The current blighted property was foreclosed for good reason considering its terrible dis-repaired conditions. Personally, I think the location is the residences is a bit odd and would rather it be used for something else as its off the beaten path, but for the sake of density, I can complain.

      Aspen Heights - 800 bedrooms - sounds like its going to be a hott sprawled out mess, and future blight property from the layout as I understand it. I have not looked into this property (and I will later) but it seems like a terrible design just considering its dimensions. From what I understand there will be 213 separate buildings consisting of 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units - ughh.


      Other developments for Statesboro include a new Hampton Inn locating in the Market District. Some leaders are trying to create a TAD near the interstate for a new industrial park. There seems to be some undisclosed major development occurring on one of the already-congested highways. Georgia Southern is also getting a New York Pizzaria - Im not sure if that is a generic working name or the actual name of the eatery.
