The dense redevelopment of Midtown parking lots continues in a way that’s becoming more visible by the day on a high-profile section of Peachtree Street.

A year after closing on a site where eateries Bezoria and Noodle and a T-Mobile store had operated, Chicago-based developer CA Ventures is going vertical on a project set to add 427 more apartments to Midtown’s core commercial district.

The project, called 903 Peachtree for its address, will eventually climb to 33 stories, which should make it stand out from Piedmont Park and other points east. Expect about 9,600 square feet of retail space at the base, where Peachtree and Eighth streets meet.

A relatively large apartment tower concept has been percolating for the site since late 2018. CA Ventures bought the property a year ago this month for $14.8 million, property records show, and the first floors are being constructed now, next to legendary Midtown club Bulldogs.

Midtown Alliance pegs the expected delivery of 903 Peachtree as fall 2022. We’ve reached out to CA Ventures reps for any updates but have yet to hear back.

The Peachtree Street venture marks the largest in a flurry of Atlanta development activity linked to CA Ventures in recent years, including the redevelopment of 1950s-era Buckhead condos Paces Green into another luxury apartment tower on East Paces Ferry Road.  

Elsewhere in Midtown, CA Ventures had also brought plans in 2018 for a 20-story student housing tower that’s since gone up at 960 Spring Street.

That project’s now called Hub on Campus, by developer Core Campus Managers, with 278 units (roughly 800 student beds) and 5,600 square feet of ground-level retail on tap.
