Urban Creek Partners has unveiled plans and renderings for Quarry Yards, a 70-acre mixed-use development in West Midtown.
Designed by HKS Architects and Populous, Quarry Yards is being master-planned to become the gateway to Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry, the city’s new park and reservoir along the Atlanta BeltLine.
Phase one of the project, which is adjacent to the Bankhead MARTA Station on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, will include 575,000 square feet of office space, 850 residential units, a 300 room hotel, and 75,000 square feet of retail and restaurants. The $400 million first phase is expected to break ground by the end of the year.
Urban Creek Partners also announced it is working with Pollack Shores Real Estate Group on forming a joint venture partnership for the multifamily development and is in discussions with a retail partner on a food hall concept.
“Urban Creek Partners has been in this community for the past 10 years, listening and learning about what our neighbors want in this development. Our plan is to continue to be here for the long haul and create an economic driver that will lift the entire area – one which has been overlooked for far too long,” said Urban Creek partner Max Teixeira.
Along with access to Westside Park and the BeltLine, the soon-to-be-completed Proctor Creek Greenway runs through the heart of the site. The developer also plans to work with MARTA to expand the Bankhead station.
Renderings for the project show building design keeping with the area’s industrial roots with brick, glass, concrete, metal and iron and container storage units that will be used for start-up businesses and restaurant concepts.
