The filings this month call for the construction of the residential project’s parking-deck amenities, common areas, and utilities, as well as work to construct the development’s apartment tower at 505 Courtland St. NE. Woodfield had initiated preliminary site work at the approximately one-acre property in May and through the summer, according to earlier permit applications.

The SoNo development will have 12 stories of studios through three-bedroom units over a four-level parking deck and single story of basement parking. Amenities include a pool deck, fitness room, and clubroom at the podium level, as well as a ground-level dog wash area and bike storage. Plans also call for a 2,128-square-foot roof terrace.

Woodfield Development, which closed on its $7.925 million acquisition of the project parcel over the summer, is joined by project architect Dwell Design Studio and landscape and hardscape design firm Site Solutions, among other companies. Woodfield’s Patrick Kassin is steering the development process for the project, which real estate company JLL has said will be the first tower building developed in the SoNo neighborhood in the last decade.

“With development sites in Midtown and Downtown becoming scarcer, SoNo is seeing substantial new growth and interest,” JLL Managing Director Mark Lindenbaum said upon the announcement of Woodfield’s purchase.

  1. This is right next to the old Pine St homeless shelter so it looks like a castle compared to the rest of the neighborhood. I think it’s fantastic. I’m interested in any other news about this area. Pine st and the civic center have been shut down for years. Any news about those two locations?

  2. What this building is not is a high-rise. A mid-rise application or label is certainly more appropriate. And Michael is spot on with his observations. With all the architectural companies that developers have access to, is this tired, overused design the best we can get in a trendy city like Atlanta? IMHO, there is nothing aesthetically pleasing about this at al! And the beat goes on…
