Allen Morris Buys Land in West Midtown Atlanta for $8.5M, Plans 14-Story Office Development
ATLANTA — The Allen Morris Co. has acquired a 1.7-acre parcel of land in Atlanta’s West Midtown district for $8.5 million, with plans to develop a new 220,000-square-foot office tower. The 14-story building located at 1041 Howell Mill Road will be known as Star Metals Offices. The building will offer 185,000 square feet of office space, 30,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and a 7,000-square-foot rooftop restaurant and bar. Amenities will include landscaped outdoor terraces, tenant collaboration areas, bike racks and shower facilities. Star Metals Offices is part of the 4.75-acre Star Metals Atlanta development, which includes 409 multifamily units located across Howell Mill Road from the site of the future office building. Jeff Bellamy of JLL is handling the office building’s leasing assignment. Allen Morris expects to begin demolition on the site later this year, with an anticipated completion in spring 2020.
