Developer Basic spaces started construction for Hub on campus, a student housing project with 792 beds in Downtown Atlanta, general contractor Juneau construction company said this month.
The project will be 19 stories tall at 960 Spring St. NW, on the northwest corner of Spring Street and Peachtree Place. Core Spaces told What Now Atlanta in March that they plan to complete the project in the summer of 2023, ahead of that year’s fall semester for Georgia Tech.
“We are thrilled to finally be part of Atlanta’s vibrant and growing community,” said Core Spaces, general manager of acquisitions. King Rodney said in a statement provided to What Now Atlanta. “With strong market fundamentals and an incredible location, this property, together with our hospitality-focused offerings, is well positioned for a successful launch here in Atlanta – The project will be delivered in the summer of 2023.”
A building permit application for the project indicates a construction cost of $ 85 million.
The plans call for nearly 300 residential units on approximately 5,600 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The apartments will also be above a four-story parking garage containing 119 parking spaces, plans on file with the city lounge. Residents will have access to an amenity package that includes approximately 10,000 square feet of library and collaborative workspace, a fitness center and a pool deck and hot tub on the 19th floor, according to plans. .
The design of the tower is led by the project architect Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, who is joined on the project by the interior design studio Curious and landscape architect Confluence.
The mixed-use development will be the last of Core Space’s flagship Hub on Campus brand. He has also built such projects in Gainesville, Florida and Lexington, Kentucky, among other cities.
The student housing project is close to two others on the corner of Spring Street and Peachtree Place, two blocks west of the Midtown MARTA station. Landmark Properties’ The Mark is at 955 Spring St., while University House Midtown is at 930 Spring St.
