Four-acre site near Bocado, The Optimist under contract for the project.
Atlantic Capital Properties' Jim Meyer and Gateway Ventures' Mack Reese have a four-acre site on the Westside under contract with plans to develop 8 West there, the Atlanta Business Chronicle (ABC) Friday first reported [paywall].
A project spokesperson in an email confirmed the news with What Now Atlanta.
Situated at the intersection of Howell Mill Road and 8th Street, the land for the forthcoming $150 million development is expected to close in October with construction starting there shortly after.
Once complete, 8 West would offer 175,000 square feet of office space across nine floors, 10,000 square feet of ground-level restaurant and retail, and 264 apartments from developer Trammell Crow Residential.
“The timing to integrate a Class A workspace component into the retail hub of the Upper Westside could not be better,” Meyer said in a prepared statement.
“...With 8 West, we have designed a project which will appeal to creative companies and individuals who value walkability and unparalleled access to the best restaurants and entertainment venues in Atlanta – a place where people want to be...”
Nearby businesses Bartaco, Bocado, Arden’s Garden, A Ma Maniere and the new Hathaway Gallery space (relocating to the development) will be "blended" into 8 West and will remain open during construction.
8 West, slated to deliver in spring 2020, is being designed by MSTSD and ASD | Sky.
