Toll Brothers now has plans for its market-rate residential and student housing project at 1018 and 1032 West Peachtree to reach 37 and 35 stories and be built in two phases, it told the Midtown Development Review Committee this week.
The Pennsylvania-based residential developer’s plans for the site go back to July of 2019, when it first proposed building a 27-story residential tower and 22-story student housing building at the Midtown site.
At the beginning of last year, it appeared poised to move forward with construction under that design, with demolition and land development permits being filed for in late 2019. Neither permit has been issued for the 1.57-acre site, which is bounded by Spring Street to the west and West Peachtree to the east and holds a two-story multifamily structure at its southeastern corner.
The development team said during the Midtown DRC meeting on Tuesday that it expects to build the latest iteration of its plans in two phases. Phase 1 is a 37-story residential tower with 376 market-rate units and about 5,000 square feet of retail fronting West Peachtree Street, while Phase 2 is a 35-story, 264-unit student housing tower fronting Spring Street.
The project architect is WDG Architecture.
DRC members expressed concerns about pedestrian safety and accessibility allowed for by the project’s circulation plan, specifically as it related to the proposed development’s retail portion, among other concerns. Committee members requested that Toll Brothers representatives come back for a presentation next month with those and other concerns addressed.
Also on the docket Tuesday was further review of Middle Street Partners’ proposed project at 1081 Juniper Street, where the developer plans on building a 470-unit apartment project at the current site of Joe’s on Juniper and Einstein’s. The DRC asked Middle Street Partners and project architect Brock Hudgins Architects to provide updated plans in the coming weeks with designs for a different street-level experience.
