A rendering of 1295 Spring Street.

JLL and MetLife have proposed a mixed-use development on 3.8 acres at 1295 Spring Street south of 17th Street. The Midtown Development Review Committee heard the plan at its April 10 meeting.

The development would consist of 600,000 square feet of office space, 255 room hotel, 350 residential units and nearly 100,000 square feet of grocery and retail uses at ground level.

The site would be organized around a new street extension of Arts Center Way from West Peachtree to Spring St. consistent with the Midtown Street Connectivity Plan. This new street serves to orient the buildings and provide access through the site.

The DRC requested additional attention on the façade along 17th Street along with traffic safety improvements to be coordinated with GDOT via reconfiguration of the new street and driveway proposed along West Peachtree Street.
