UPDATE (June 20, 2018): ‘Juniper and 5th’ Condo Mid-Rise Unveils Official ‘J5’ Name, Branding
Residential development Juniper and 5th is moving forward in Midtown but as condos instead of apartments.
Southeast Capital Companies—the original developer of Juniper and 5th—first acquired the land in spring 2015 with plans to build apartments.
The project’s new developer Dezhu US recently received a $6 million loan from real estate lender BridgeInvest, the financing needed to move the five-story project forward, according to Curbed Atlanta.
The 1.8-acre site, at the corner of Juniper and 5th Streets, has since been cleared.
Constructed is expected to begin immediately and 150 condominiums priced in the $500,000s and $600,000s will be available late-2019.
Smith Dalia is behind the project’s design and describes the exterior as featuring “shifting ‘wood boxes’ that create a zipper effect along the corners and play with solid and void in pockets across the street frontage.”
“The back side of the building emulates a ziggurat form. The step-down of each level gives these rear units expansive private roof terraces with built-in planters and sunscreens. Adding to the luxury feel of this development, units at street level and corner units on the top floor are loft units featuring ceilings up to 15′ in height and ample windows.”
Amenities include two landscaped courtyards, one with a pool and adjacent club room and fitness center, as well as a rooftop clubroom with a deck overlooking the skyline.
