Architectural firm Kimley Horn & Associates earlier this week filed a set of permits with the City of Atlanta for the multi-use development.

The first permit calls for the demolition of a five-story office building at 1295 Spring Street NW, the future Midtown Union site.

An estimated $200,000 could be spent in demolition costs.

A second permit application seeks approvals to develop the land and build infrastructure for the future multi-use development totaling approximately 1.3 million square feet.

Land development and infrastructure costs, such as building a private road and installing grease traps, should come in around $5,578,425.

The permits follow last week’s Special Administrative Permit (SAP) application approval by the Development Review Committee (DRC) for Midtown SPI-16.

Once complete, Midtown Union would offer a 25-story office tower, retail, residential, and a 250-key hotel.

MetLife Investment Management, the institutional asset management business for MetLife, Inc., earlier this year received “conditional approval” for the project.

MetLife representatives Thursday did not immediately return What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.
