Landmark, Selig Underway on $110M Student Housing Project in Midtown Atlanta

by John Nelson

ATLANTA — Athens, Ga.-based Landmark Properties and Atlanta-based Selig Enterprises have teamed up to co-develop The Standard at Atlanta, a new 362,000-square-foot student housing and mixed-use development in Midtown Atlanta. Construction on the 765-bed development began in August, and the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports the development costs total $110 million. Landmark and Selig expect the first phase of the project to be open to residents during the second half of 2018 and anticipate pre-leasing to begin in late 2017. Bound by Spring, Williams, 3rd and 4th streets, The Standard will be situated less than a half-mile from Georgia Tech’s campus and one block from Technology Square. The Standard’s amenities will include a clubhouse, rooftop pool, tanning beds, fitness center, sauna, golf simulator, study lounge and computer lab. Residences will include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood-style floors, washers and dryers and private balconies in select units. The Standard will provide a mix of studio, one-, two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom floor plans and will also include commercial retail space on the ground floor featuring more than 10,300 square feet and a new Starbucks with a drive-thru. There will also be more than 500 parking spaces for residents and 55 spaces for retail businesses. Landmark Urban Construction will serve as the project’s general contractor, and Atlanta-based Niles Bolton Associates is the architect. This is the first student housing project in Atlanta for Landmark Properties.
