Developer Core Spaces has started construction for Hub on Campus, a 792-bed student housing project in Midtown Atlanta, general contractor Juneau Construction Company said this month.
The project will rise 19 stories at 960 Spring St. NW, at the northwestern corner of Spring Street and Peachtree Place. Core Spaces told What Now Atlanta in March that it expects to finish the project in the summer of 2023, before that year’s fall semester for Georgia Tech.
“We’re thrilled to finally be a part of the vibrant and thriving Atlanta community,” Core Spaces Managing Director of Acquisitions Rodney King said in a statement provided to What Now Atlanta. “With strong market fundamentals and an incredible location, this property, coupled with our hospitality-driven offerings are well-positioned for a successful launch here in Atlanta – The project will deliver Summer 2023.”
A building permit application for the project lists a cost of construction of $85 million.
Plans call for nearly 300 residential units over about 5,600 square feet of ground-level retail space. The apartments will also be above a four-story parking garage holding 119 parking spaces, plans on file with the city show. Residents will have access to an amenity package that includes about 10,000 square feet of library and co-working space, a fitness center, and a 19th-floor pool deck and hot tub, plans show.
The design of the tower is led by project architect Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, which is joined on the project by interior design studio Curioso and landscape architect Confluence.
The mixed-use development will be the latest under Core Space’s flagship Hub on Campus brand. It also has built such projects in Gainesville, Florida and Lexington, Kentucky, among other cities.
The student housing project is near two others at the corner of Spring Street and Peachtree Place, which is two blocks west of the Midtown MARTA station. Landmark Properties’ The Mark is at 955 Spring St., while University House Midtown is at 930 Spring St.
