The torrent of new student housing in Midtown continues.

Less than a month after move-ins began at the 25-story Whistler Atlanta building beside The Cheetah strip club, another student-housing tower project has declared itself finished about two blocks away, on the same Midtown street.  

Two years after breaking ground, national developer Core Spaces has delivered the 19-story Hub Atlanta building at 960 Spring Street, having just moved in students for the 2023-2024 school year.

Developers describe the 292-unit building—a glass and panel-clad structure with a four-story parking garage almost fully concealed—as “stunning.”

Standing just south of 10th Street, a few blocks from Georgia Tech on the opposite side of the Connector, Hub Atlanta offers 792 student beds in layouts ranging from studios to six-bedrooms across the 405,947-square-foot property. It adds to thousands of new off-campus housing options for Georgia Tech and other college students developed in Midtown’s western blocks over the past decade.

Hub Atlanta replaced two low-rise commercial buildings that were most recently home to indoor-outdoor nightclub Alibi Atlanta and Opium Lounge.

Costs of renting at Hub Atlanta vary wildly. For max privacy, studio units start at 385 square feet and $1,649 monthly.

The largest options for students who are cool with buddying up—six-bedroom apartments with about 1,675 square feet—rent from $1,209 monthly total, with administrative fees of $150 per person.

VIP packages (yes, really) with upgraded features such as in-unit sound systems, 65-inch smart TVs, and memory foam mattresses are offered.

Amenities include an onsite coffee shop called New Here Coffee, a rooftop pool deck with hot tub, a dog park, coworking spaces, private study lounges, and a fitness center described as state-of-the-art.

At the base level, Hub Atlanta has also delivered 6,990 square feet of retail space. No tenant signings have been announced.

Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture designed the building, while Curioso provided interior design alongside Core’s in-house team.

That design “focused on a hospitality influenced experience with strong residential undertones and contemporary art pops,” according to a delivery announcement this week. “Sophisticated and tailored yet funky and fun, the interiors embrace colors and texture, incorporating a vibrant palette to complement the vibrant city of Atlanta.”

Okay. Right on. See for yourself in the gallery above.
