Plans indicate that Howell Mill Road’s transformation into a denser urban district is set to continue soon at a key intersection west of Midtown.

Austin-based AC Residential Partners is planning to redevelop a small former church, parking lot, and several low-rise residential structures into the booming corridor’s next mixed-use venture, between 10th and 9th streets.

New renderings and other details included in recent marketing materials lend an idea what the 312-unit building will look like—and how its street-level uses are intended to add retail to both Howell Mill Road and 9th Street. (Earlier reports pegged the unit count at 343 apartments.)

The project is expected to stand 16 stories total over a five-story parking garage, with 1.36 parking spaces per unit, or 322 spaces total, according to Cartel Properties.

The 1.26-acre land assemblage is located directly across Howell Mill Road from the 13-story Osprey, developed by Toll Brothers Apartment Living two years ago. Other major projects within a few blocks include the Star Metals district, Interlock, and 8West.

AC Residential’s 489,000-square-foot proposal would include about 25,000 square feet of retail, as well as a resident lobby, at the sidewalk level.

Renderings indicate an elevated pool is planned along 9th Street, along with a large rooftop amenity space, from which skyline views should be superb.

The Atlanta Mission complex is located just south of the project site and not included in development plans.

Marketing materials indicate the building will deliver in 2024.

The apartment mix calls for 130 studios (expected rents: around $1,600 monthly), 116 one-bedrooms ($2,000), and 97 two-bedroom units (topping out around $2,500), as Atlanta Agent Magazine reported in January, when the project was seeking zoning approvals.

We’ve reached out to AC Residential Partners reps in Texas, and Cartel Properties officials locally, about a timeline for construction and other details. We’ll post any further information that comes, beyond what’s highlighted in the gallery above.
