An Underwood Hills project has reached its peak and will inject hundreds of homes next to a bustling office complex and dining options in a former industrial district of Atlanta.
Selig Development and joint venture partner GID have christened the 306-unit apartment project “Westbound at the Works” and opened a model unit in the adaptive reuse development next door, The Works, to give potential tenants a glimpse of what is to come.
As new renderings and aerial photography illustrate, the multi-family component of The Works has taken shape at the main entrance to the property, where Chattahoochee Avenue meets Chattahoochee Row. It officially erupted in December next to The Camp, the property’s 1-acre wooded green space.
The five-story residential construction will feature 70% one-bedroom units, with the remainder being two-bedroom options. A 547-space car park is also included.
Facilities available include a co-working space, indoor and outdoor fitness area, games room, outdoor TV lounge by the pool, games room with a bar and a courtyard around the swimming pool with communal kitchens.
GID, the developer behind Dunwoody’s High Street, and Selig Development, the development arm of Selig Enterprises, have tapped RangeWater Real Estate to lead the leasing effort, which is expected to begin in earnest in January. The first moves into The Works are scheduled for July.
Like other adaptive reuse companies in the city of The tag at Krog Street Market, Selig’s The Works first provided an abundance of food and drink offerings and is now adding accommodations that will theoretically help support it. The apartment project is unique in that it received one of Atlanta’s first mixed-use industrial zoning designations, or I-MIX, allowing new housing to be built in a historically industrial site.
Designed by architecture firm Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, Westbound at The Works aims to echo the neighborhood’s industrial aesthetic through “charcoal gray brickwork, modern dark bronze windows and fiber cement panels. with touches of copper color”. the development team.
Once delivered, the apartments will complete the initial phase of The Works. It spans 27 acres – out of a possible 80 acres – and houses 184,000 square feet of retail and 125,000 square feet of office space.
Today attractions include the 31 stalls Chattahoochee Food Works, Fox Bros Bar-BQ, Dr. Scofflaw’s Brewery, Ballard Designs, Adelina Social Goods, Stellar Bodies, American Axes and Happy Mango.
Other tenants expected to open in time for the apartments’ debut include the Your 3rd Spot ‘entertainment’ concept, BRASH Coffee Roasters, the Forum Cocktail Club, Taste Wine Bar and Market and the latest outpost of Fetch Dog Park. .
