'100 6th Street' apartment tower to break ground in January

The city’s economic development arm, Invest Atlanta, announced late this week the approval of tax abatements worth about $3 million for the $63 million mixed-use project that is expected to be completed by late 2013.

The Novare Group and the Batson-Cook Development Company have made it official in stating they will begin next month to build a 23-story 320-unit luxury apartment tower in Midtown known as 100 6th Street.

The $63 million mixed-use project will stand behind the existing 36-story Viewpoint condo tower and five percent of its units will be offered as affordable housing.

The city’s economic development arm, Invest Atlanta, announced late this week the approval of tax abatements worth about $3 million for the project that is expected to be completed by late 2013.

Novare President Jim Borders said he hopes the affordable component of the apartment tower would be enticing to police officers, firefighters, and educators.

Invest Atlanta’s Brian McGowan told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that 100 6th Street is “a great public-private partnership supporting job creation, providing affordable housing and bringing incremental property tax revenue to the city.”

Not far away, Novare and Batson-Cook have almost completed SkyHouse Midtown after breaking ground on the mixed-use project in January of this year.

The 23-story 320-unit apartment building at the corner of West Peachtree and 12th streets will feature studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartment homes topped by an amenity deck 230 feet above street level.

And not far away, Daniel Corporation and Selig Enterprises are in the process of delivering 77 12th, a 22-story, 330-unit apartment tower. It’s Phase III of the 12th and Midtown development.

I was just checking in to get a update on Novare's 100 6th street project and again stunned at all the little bigot's who really believe that the sensibility to want to live, walk the streets of and help shape a dynamic urban space only rests with them, gracing us with their presence!... It is a shame that between Metropolis and 905 P' tree were going to be stuck with this uninspired ugliness, similar mid-rise projects would of been better than this, and oh the two projects mentioned, there affordable.

We should all be glad anyone is building anything in Midtown. Construction is a sign of growth, even thought it may be slow. When I moved to Midtown in the early 2000's you couldn't look out your window with out seeing a tower crane. These days you are lucky to see one. There are two currently.

I've read all the above comments about Midtown, and I don't even live there, but it scares the willys out of me taking all that in.

To the people who are not from Atlanta, midtown is their version of a wannabe NYC. To those of us who are native Atlantans, midtown will always be a ghetto filled with hood rats and homeless people mixed in with people who were conned into thinking they were buying into an upper echelon lifestyle. There's a reason why people in the know stay out of midtown. You're better off in Buckhead.
