ATLANTA — Gateway Ventures and Atlantic Capital Partners have unveiled plans to develop 8West, a mixed-use project located at the corner of Howell Mill Road and 8th Street in Atlanta’s West Midtown district. The project will include 175,000 square feet of office space, 10,000 square feet of retail developed in collaboration with Cartel Properties, 264 apartment units developed by Trammell Crow Residential and a 680-space parking garage. Existing retailers fronting 8West will be integrated into the project, including Bocado, Bartaco, Arden’s Garden and A Ma Maniere. In addition, the project will feature a 4,000-square-foot, west-facing art wall. The project developers will partner with Hathaway Gallery to engage local artists through an outreach program for both public art and building artwork. The nine-story development will feature outdoor terraces with 360-degree views of the city, a fitness center, bike storage, common collaborative spaces and conference facilities, an outdoor public plaza and podcast recording rooms. Harvest Capital Group and Ellis, McQuary & Stanley are the project’s equity investors. BL Harbert International is the general contractor, and MSTSD and ASD/Sky are the architects. Stephen Clifton and Zach Wooten of PMRG are handling the project’s leasing assignment. Gateway and Atlantic Capital expect to wrap up construction on 8West in spring 2020.
