Spoke, a reference to the connective qualities of this location at the entry of an Intown MARTA station, will be the residential component of this mixed-use redevelopment project. Building on 15 years of development experience in the neighborhood by the principals, Columbia Ventures, in partnership with the transit authority and Invest Atlanta, the city’s development authority, will break ground in 2016 with an exciting mix of neighborhood placemaking. A highly amenitized 224-unit market rate multifamily building featuring contemporary architecture will be constructed adjacent to the station entry, with dramatic views of the Atlanta skyline. The development also overlooks to the east an urban plaza that will be anchored by a new Perkins + Will designed headquarters for a leading Atlanta youth development organization, including a 140 seat performing arts center within. Completing the first phase will be outdoor and indoor dining at the center of the plaza.
