Crescent Howell Mill, a $47 million, 256-unit luxury community is officially on its way to bringing the apartment market in the area between Atlanta’s Buckhead and Midtown districts to boil.

The developer, Crescent Communities, expects the mixed-use project to help create a new residence and lifestyle destination to the neighborhood. The groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday, Nov. 19 and the community will expectedly open its doors in spring 2015.

The development is financed by Capital One and Nationwide loans along with equity from Crescent Communities. DPR Hardin Construction is entrusted with building operations, while the design team includes The Preston Partnership, Historical Concepts and Southern Civil Engineers, Inc. from Atlanta, as well as two Charlotte-based firms, LandDesign and Vignette Interior Design.

The building will resemble an old textile mill, complementing the design of the mixed-use community. The project is the residential component of an 8 acre mixed-use development including shops and three boutique restaurants with garden courtyards around a cobblestoned entry drive, completed by Healey Weatherholtz Properties.

Additional phases will focus on fashion, home furnishings, and additional food and beverage. Crescent Howell Mill will be built on 2.2 acres of land at the corner of Howell Mill Road NW and Collier Road near Interstate 75. Future residents can choose from studios and one- or two-bedroom units. The interior design will include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and designer light fixtures. Tenants of the five-story building will enjoy the benefits of an athletic club, a saltwater pool with sun deck, an outdoor kitchen with grilling stations, fire pit social deck and a dog walk park.

Residents will have a direct drive to Midtown and Downtown and will be within close proximity to retail, entertainment and dining options. Crescent Howell Mill is the company’s second multifamily development in Atlanta. Crescent Terminus in Buckhead is expected to open in March 2014.
