A new Midtown high-rise designed to complement its historic context with an aesthetic more classic than modern has officially opened its doors.

After breaking ground in the pandemic summer of 2020, The Hadley Atlanta began a leasing push earlier this month for its first available apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedroom options. It’s the second Midtown project and third in Atlanta by Dallas-based StreetLights Residential, delivering on time this spring as predicted from early phases of construction.

Designed by the developer’s in-house StreetLights Creative Studio, the 300-unit Hadley aims to echo and fit in with historic St. Marks United Methodist Church next door. It incorporated classic elements such as metal arches and stacked stone, and wood-paneled interiors more stately than hip, for an aesthetic that marketing materials have described as “breathtaking.”

Elsewhere, about 2,500 square feet of retail space is included at street level.

The current deal goes that renters who sign at least a year-long lease will get eight weeks of free rent.

What’ll that cost? At the low end, rents for available units start at $1,880 for a 538-square-foot studio on the ninth floor.

The priciest apartment listed today is a 10th-floor option asking $5,245 per month. That gets three bedrooms and three bathrooms in $1,716 square feet. But logic says top-end rents could climb higher, as no apartments on upper floors are currently listed as being ready to rent.

Perks in each apartment include what’s described as an “urban mud room,” quartz countertops, and built-in speakers with Sonos connections.  

Communal amenities include a private, hotel-style bar and lounge for residents, a coffee bar, coworking spaces, a pet spa and dog park, a spin studio, and a pool deck on the eighth floor with city views.

The Hadley joins the J5 condos across the street in a subsection of Midtown that’s grown substantially denser in recent years—and where a complete street overhaul of Juniper Street is scheduled to finally kick off this month.

Elsewhere in Atlanta, StreetLights’ projects have included the 18-story Mira apartments, the residential portion of Midtown Union, and an apartment building at the Aria project in Sandy Springs.

The Hadley replaced two vacant, former residential structures, surface parking, and another small building behind the church along Juniper Street.
