The Allen Morris Co. has acquired a 1.7-acre parcel of land in Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood, for $8.5 million. The land will be home to Star Metals Offices, a Class A tower that will offer office and ground-floor retail space, serving as the commercial component of the Star Metals Atlanta development.

This acquisition adds to the total site of 4.8 acres for the overall project, which will also feature 409 luxury apartments across the street. Located at 1041 Howell Mill Road, the Platinum Wired-certified, 14-story tower will comprise 222,000 square feet of LEED-certified office space, 30,000 square feet of high-ceiling retail and a 7,000-square-foot rooftop restaurant and bar. Tenants will have access to amenities such as:

  • landscaped outdoor terraces
  • team collaboration areas
  • bike racks
  • shower facilities 
  • ‘glass house’ rooftop amenity at the bar
  • four levels of parking
  • panoramic views of Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown

The company expects to begin demolition of the site in late 2018, with completion scheduled for the spring of 2020. Leasing for Star Metals Offices is managed by the Atlanta office of JLL, head by Managing Director Jeff Bellamy.

“We are very pleased to be taking another major step forward in the development of Star Metals Atlanta,” said Allen Morris, chairman & CEO of The Allen Morris Co., in prepared remarks. “We are confident that this will be a truly innovative and transformative development for Atlanta and for West Midtown.”
