“We’re excited to enter the Atlanta market and we look forward to offering students in Atlanta’s thriving higher educational community an unsurpassed college living experience,” Wes Rogers, Landmark Properties’ president & CEO, said. “Midtown has a strong demand for luxury student housing with amenities that create a great college experience and foster academic success.”
The Standard at Atlanta will feature 257 apartments with 765 beds and provide a mix of studio through five-bedroom floor plans. Units will include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood-style floors, washers and dryers, ample cabinet space and private balconies in select units.
Amenities will include a clubhouse, rooftop pool, tanning beds, fitness center, sauna, golf simulator, study lounge and computer lab.
Located less than a third of a mile from the center of Georgia Tech, the development will encompass an entire block, bound by Spring, Williams, 3rd and 4th streets, just east of the downtown connector.
“We’ve been developing in Midtown for generations and we’re excited to partner with Landmark to transform the residential student environment in the submarket,” Jo Ann Chitty, Selig Enterprises’ senior vice president, said. “The Standard at Atlanta is a vital connection between Tech Square and North Avenue that will help better connect students to their studies, to their campus and to Midtown.”
The development will also include commercial retail space on the ground floor featuring more than 10,300 square feet and a new Starbucks with drive-thru. There will also be more than 500 parking spaces for residents and 55 spaces for retail businesses.
The first phase of the development is expected to be open to residents during the second half of 2018, with pre-leasing to begin in late 2017.
Landmark Properties has more than 30 projects across the country at some of the country’s top universities, and The Standard at Atlanta will be the company’s first project in its home state’s capital.
