TriBridge Residential is moving towards construction work for its Goat Farm Arts Center redevelopment, according to multifamily land development and demolition permit applications filed this month.
This month’s filings follow the City of Atlanta Office of Zoning & Development granting special administrative permit approvals in the spring for plans at 1200 and 1260 Foster Street NW. At the former address, TriBridge has received approvals for a 210-unit mixed-use apartment project with about 35,000 square feet of non-residential space, SAP documents show. At the latter, plans call for the development of a new approximately 25,000-square-foot home for The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.
Long-term plans at the roughly 4-acre site, which sits near the southern edge of the Blandtown neighborhood, have also included a roughly 125-room hotel and 80,000 square feet of artist workspaces, entrepreneurial studios, and fabrication spaces, among other features.
TriBridge Residential didn’t respond to request for comment on when it expects to start and finish construction on the project’s various components.
Plans approved in the spring call for three buildings including about 212,000 square feet of residential space containing 17 studios, 155 one-bedrooms, and 38 two-bedroom apartments.
Of the 210 units, 33, or about 15 percent, will be set aside for households at 80 percent of area median income or below. Rents at that level will range from $1,158 for the studios to $1,490 for the twos instead of the market rate of $1,339 to $2,120, according to SAP filings.
Designed by Niles Bolton Associates, plans also call for 322 parking spaces and residential amenities such as a roughly 8,000-square-foot pool deck.
Just south of 1200 Foster, the new two-story home of MOCA GA will feature several large new galleries similar to the features of the existing museum, which is in Buckhead.
“New security and climactic measures will bring MOCA GA to a fully accredited museum status, enabling MOCA GA to care for its artwork, archives and collections, safeguarding Georgia’s visual artistic heritage for the future,” the SAP application reads. “Accreditation also means that MOCA GA may borrow and curate shows and works of art with other museums, broadening the MOCA GA art reach.”
“The site allows MOCA GA to double in size over the coming years assuring a permanence thatit has never experienced before.”
