Construction has begun on Midtown Union, a large mixed-use development in Midtown at Spring and 17th Streets.
The official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for December 9, at 1295 Spring Street, according to a press release Monday.
The project, designed by Cooper Carry, with Brasfield & Gorrie as the general contractor, is a partnership between MetLife Investment Management, and Granite Properties commercial real estate investment, development and management company.
Encompassing nearly a full city block and spanning 8.5 acres, the project consists of a 26-story, 606,000 square foot Class A office building, 18-story, 355-unit modern residential tower atop eight levels of parking, a 12-story, 205-key boutique lifestyle hotel, 30,000 square feet of retail, and a 635,000 square foot parking deck providing 1,909 parking spaces.
Invesco’s headquarters will anchor the office building across 300,000 square feet.
Outdoors, Midtown Union will feature an extension of Arts Center Way, a go-between connecting Spring and West Peachtree Streets. Inspired by a European boulevard, the path will create a new retail destination in Midtown with shops, restaurants and green space.
The development will incorporate biophilic design elements like indoor vegetation, landscaped amenity decks and public green space and draws inspiration from the surrounding art community in the form of sculptures and murals.
Indoors, StreetLights Residential, in partnership with MetLife Investment Management, will develop the upscale multifamily tower offering 355 units featuring studio, one, two and three-bedroom homes.
The street-level lobby offers a 24-hour concierge service, coffee bar, conference lab, and co-working space. Amenities include resident storage, pet spa, fitness center, club room and an outdoor amenity deck with pool, seating and grilling stations overlooking Arts Center Way.
Stormont Hospitality Group and The Allen Morris Company, in partnership with MetLife Investment Management, will develop the 205-room lifestyle hotel at Midtown Union, with more than 5,000 net square feet of meeting space, a destination chef-driven restaurant, and an active bar spilling out onto Arts Center Way at the corner of West Peachtree.
Leased by JLL, the entire development is expected to open in the summer of 2022.
