Two mixed-use proposals that would rise a collective 63 stores are in the works for long-empty sites in prominent Midtown locations, according to Midtown Alliance.
Developers are expected to introduce both concepts Tuesday during the Midtown Development Review Committee’s July meeting.
At 33 stories, the taller project would claim a surface parking lot at 811 Peachtree Street NE—the southeast corner of Peachtree and 6th streets.
Atlanta development wonks will recall the site was planned for several years to host a compelling, Perkins & Will-designed apartment tower called EVIVA Peachtree.
But in 2018, developers The Integral Group backed away from the 32-story venture and reopened the corner lot for parking.
According to Midtown Alliance, the new proposal will climb to a similar height—one story taller—but with a greater array of uses: 76,500 square feet of offices, 460 residential units, and about 16,000 square feet of retail at the street. A six-story parking podium would house 455 parking spaces.
The applicant is identified as Property Markets Group.
Meanwhile, a few blocks northeast at 180 10th Street, highly active metro Atlanta developer Mill Creek Residential wants to build 345 residences in 30 stories, per a Midtown DRC meeting agenda.
About 4,000 square feet of retail would operate along the street.
The long-fallow site is fenced off along the north side of 10th Street, between Juniper Street and Piedmont Avenue, next to Blue MedCenter and Spa.
Overlooking Piedmont Park, Mill Creek’s proposal would stand atop a partially buried parking deck (442 spaces) accessible from 11th Street, per the agenda.
That block hasn’t seen much activity since Atlantic Residential finished the 28-story Azure on the Park next door in 2016.
