A residential project that’s come together in the shadow of Mercedes-Benz Stadium is being recognized for its sustainability and friendliness toward the downtown environment.
Situated at 99 Centennial Olympic Park Drive, next to LED-clad sibling project Reverb by Hard Rock hotel, Castleberry Park has finished construction and added 129 apartments, alongside 15,800 square feet of commercial space, to the historic Castleberry Hill neighborhood.
The project’s architect, Atlanta-based TSW, announced this week Castleberry Park has also been recognized by the Green Building Initiative with Two Green Globes awards for environmental sustainability, following an evaluation process.
The Two Globes recognition is awarded to projects that show “excellent progress in reducing environmental impacts by applying best practices in energy and environmental efficiency,” according to TSW.
TSW’s Architecture Studio led designs for the 311,083-square-foot project located, like the hotel, just south of The Benz.
TSW worked with Gensler Atlanta, the hotel’s designer, to create a shared parking garage that can handle special events, along with residents and hotel guests. Other noted aspects include an “urban park” that allowed for a 13-foot transition between Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Mitchell Street and a versatile rooftop social area. The project’s modern-meets-brick façade was designed as a link between the still-futuristic stadium and the historic neighborhood, according to TSW officials.
As rents go, the least expensive option currently available at Castleberry Park is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit in 743 square feet that costs $1,796 monthly.
The largest option—two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,294 square feet—rents for $2,999. (Two-story apartments with live-work spaces were also included but aren’t currently available for rent, per Castleberry Park's website.)
The complex does offer a workforce housing program with 27 units for tenants who earn less than 80 percent of the Area Median Income. The least expensive studio units as part of that program rent for $1,430 monthly, up to $1,838 for two-bedroom options.
Officials with developer Dezhu US previously told Urbanize Atlanta the apartment project began construction in late 2020 and was initially expected to deliver by the end of the following year. Construction delays changed the timeline, as they had with the 11-story, 195-room hotel beside the new residences.
