ATLANTA (May 16, 2018) – As the energy of booming West Midtown continues to flourish, Star Metals, the iconic industrial site, adds to the Westside narrative. Developed by The Allen Morris Company, one of the largest diversified real estate firms in the Southeast with a 47-year presence and legacy in Atlanta, Star Metals is a dynamic five-acre development uniquely positioned spanning both sides of Howell Mill Road at 11th Street.
This inventive mixed-use development will include 185,000 square feet of Class-A office space, 409 luxury residential units and 48,000 square feet of prime retail. Leading the retail and restaurant leasing efforts are Adrienne Crawford, Vice President, Lily H. Heimburger, Vice President, and Allie Spangler, Senior Associate, of SRS Real Estate Partners, whose vast experience includes Krog Street Market, Gateway at Sandy Springs and currently The Collective at Coda with Portman Holdings.
Star Metals will add to the vibrant mix of dining, shopping and entertainment venues in the trendy, foodie destination neighborhood. Prospective categories include a specialty market, boutique retailers, fitness studios, coffee bar, upscale restaurants and entertainment. A 5,000 square foot rooftop restaurant space with expansive terrace will provide the ultimate dining experience along with panoramic views of Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown.
Conveniently located four blocks from Georgia Tech, Star Metals will attract creative professionals offering walkability and biking in an art-centric environment.
With 60 years of real estate industry experience overall, including 19 projects in the Atlanta area, Star Metals will be The Allen Morris Company’s 83rd and 84th overall development.
“We are delighted to partner with SRS Real Estate Partners who share our exciting vision for Star Metals and the future of West Midtown,” said W. Allen Morris, Chairman and CEO of The Allen Morris Company. “We are focused on celebrating the unique West Midtown vibrant lifestyle, history and character, especially during such a pivotal time in the city as it continues to experience a booming economy. As a company with a family history in the Atlanta community for seven generations, we are honored to be able to bring a project like Star metals to the West Midtown neighborhood for everyone to enjoy.”
Designed by award-winning and internationally-respected design architect Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture, Dwell Design Studio, and Warner Summers Architecture firm, with interiors by Square Feet Studio, both buildings will exude modern luxury and offer an array of contemporary amenities that will enhance the West Midtown community while honoring the historical composition and materials of the old rail yards for which West Midtown is known.
