If you live in or have driven through Midtown recently, you might have noticed multiple construction projects underway. With three major projects in mid-construction and the fourth, Novare group’s “100 6th Street” apartments in the planning stages, more and more people will have opportunities to live in this elite, metropolitan location.

SkyHouse Midtown, a $60 million high rise apartment building, is under construction at the corner of West Peachtree and 12th Street. Built by

Novare Group and

Batson-Cook Development Company, this 23-story high-rise building will house 320 apartments with 8,400 square feet of ground-level retail space facing 12th Street as well as a free-standing parking deck.

SkyHouse is one of the largest private construction projects underway in Atlanta, and will feature a pool in addition to 360 degree views of Atlanta’s beautiful skyline. Construction on these new apartments is expected to be completed in early 2013.

In addition, the

Daniel Corporation and

Selig Enterprises are building a 22-story, 320-unit apartment tower, “77 12th Street.” Set to finish early in 2013, this tower will feature 20,000 square feet of ground-level retail space on 12th Street and Crescent Avenue.

Also, in late August, construction began on Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Hotel. These projects have created over 200 construction jobs and will bring more than100 full-time jobs upon completion of these beautiful hotels. Opening in 2013, both hotels combined will have 226 units and will feature a 110-seat restaurant and lounge, an outdoor pool, spa and fitness center. Access to the hotels will be from Williams Street with an exit onto 10th Street. A parking lot will occupy the first four floors, and the actual hotel will occupy floors five through 12.

According to recent analytics from

TransUnion Corporation, national apartment rents were up 4.4 percent in the first quarter. Leading the way was the Atlanta market, which saw a 6.3 percent increase.

The average rent for the nation increased to $865 from $829, while Atlanta average rent increased to $783from $737. Atlanta was the only market that saw such a significant increase in rental prices. Many markets, including Denver, Chicago and Los Angeles, are still experiencing declines in rental prices.

“It’s not a surprise that rental prices increased in the first quarter as recent industry data revealed that vacancy rates reached their lowest levels since 2001,” said Mike Mauseth, president of TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions. “Our data highlights the fact that rental markets must truly be observed city by city as there are differences even in the largest metro areas situated relatively close to each other. For instance, our analysis revealed that rental prices dropped in Houston and Los Angeles while they increased in Dallas and San Diego.”

Even with rental prices on the rise, Atlanta still has some of the hottest apartments around. For more information on all of the latest Atlanta apartments news, be sure to visit

multi family housingResidents and their guests at Rockledge not only enjoy an apartment community with the best in home features, like open floor plans, walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances and marble countertops, they also enjoy beautifully planned amenities, designed by award-winning design firm, Leslie Schlesinger Interiors. The Palm Beach-based company that specializes in hospitality and high-end and multi-family residential industries recently completed the work on the resort-style amenities at Rockledge, an Atlanta area apartment community.

Rockledge is located very close to the Chattahoochee River, and offers guests direct access to the Chattahoochee National Preserve, which allows residents to connect with the great outdoors. So it is only fitting that

Leslie Schlesinger Interiors carried the theme of connecting with nature throughout the amenities in the community.

The community’s impressive amenities include seven swimming pools, tennis courts, sand volleyball, 80-seat movie theater, playgrounds, running and biking trails and more. The 18,000 square foot clubhouse is surrounded by stone columns and stone flooring and natural wood siding along the exterior walkways, and a natural wood awning that provides shade and cover, but also lets in plenty of natural light. Leslie Schlesinger Interiors provided the perfect spot for residents to relax and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors with wide, reclining Adirondack chairs, outdoor fireplace, picnic tables, ceiling fans with overhead lighting and gas grills. The outside seating areas also include small, ambiance-enhancing touches like Asian-inspired carriage lanterns hanging from the exterior walkways.

The clubhouse includes a basketball court with a floor-to-ceiling Rockledge logo painted on one wall and an indoor walking/running track circles above the court. Read More→

Atlanta apartment industry

There was a time when homeownership was the American Dream and rentals were thought of as just a transitory option (like I just graduated from college and still eat ramen noodles every night for dinner, but enjoy being on my own). Then, the housing market crashed, seeming to solidify dream of owning a home with many inexpensive homes suddenly available.

With the housing market inundated with inexpensive homes, foreclosures and short sales after its crash, many in the apartment business were wondering what it meant for them (and at first, it wasn’t looking too good). But now, it seems that things are taking a turn for the better according to a
Wall Street Journal article.

Among the companies reporting good news for the apartment industry is Atlanta-based Post Properties, Inc. The company asserts that the average occupancy rate is up from the previous year and now sits at 95.5 percent. Read More→

One of the benefits of living at the

Trips are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays throughout August. You can choose to take a morning canoe ride on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. Or, if you’d prefer you can take an evening trip on Saturday or Sunday at 6 p.m. Admission is $25 for CNC members and $30 for non-members.

apartments in AtlantaAfter recent events leading to the current slump in the housing market, real estate markets are seeing more and more renters entering them. This has been the case in the Atlanta real estate market, as our city has been named the 16th-best market for rental properties.

The cities with the best rental climate generally have markets in which home prices have fallen substantially. Though it is apartments that are widely accepted as rentals, it is estimated by HomeVestors of America Inc. that 14 percent of America’s single-family homes are maintained as rental properties.

From January through May, about half of all home closings in Atlanta were under $100,000, and a further 23 percent were under $50,000, as reported by Steve Palm of Smart Numbers. Because home prices are below their previously seen average, these otherwise empty homes are easily turned into competitive rental properties. This is great news for those seeking to rent properties.

free photoThere will be a new addition to the city skyline soon enough. Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. are planning Midtown’s first high-rise multifamily project in nearly ten years.

The development, called “77 12th Street,” is to be a 22-story apartment tower located at 12th Street and Crescent Avenue. This tower is being designed by local Atlanta architects Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio LLC.

Upon completion, the new tower of high rise homes will be located across from Ri Ra, an Irish pub in the Midtown area.

In a recent interview with Atlanta Business Chronicle, Steve Selig, the president of Selig Entreprises, has dubbed the Midtown area the perfect place for such an apartment project due to its location in the heart of Atlanta, traffic grid, park, arts and educational opportunities.

In terms of Atlanta real estate, the midtown area has not seen development of a substantial new tower since the 2002 Metropolis project built by Wood Partners LLC and Novare Group Inc. Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. actually pushed this project to the top of its priority list after deciding to hold off on a project that would have created a new tower of offices in the Atlanta area.
