Since 2015, a block-long multifamily project promising an eye-catching, stair-stepped design has been percolating on Midtown’s Juniper Street, between 4th and 5th streets.
Over time, and under new developers, the project has evolved into the subdistrict’s largest condo venture to launch vertical construction since the Great Recession. The name was changed to simply J5, a reflection of the address.
Officials with developer Brightstar, which is partnering with Dezhu US, recently announced that the luxury condo project will be finished in the spring. It’ll max out at six stories and offer 150 for-sale units.
“The timing is right for J5 in Midtown,” Pauline Miller, Brightstar president, said in a press release.
Beyond that, expect an elevated green space and pool courtyard with summer kitchen, a club room, 24-hour security, and a “sunset lounge” at the top level.
Developers also pointed to planned infrastructure improvements on the Juniper Street corridor that “will amplify livability through added bikeways and pedestrian amenities,” per the release.
J5 will serve up one, two, and even three bedroom condos. The least expensive homes will now begin in the low $600,000s, officials said.
We’ve asked for floorplans and pricing for larger units and will update this story with any materials that come.
Beyond J5, hundreds of for-sale units are in various phases of planning and construction at several boutique ventures and two main Midtown proposals: No2 Opus Place (now beginning in the $400,000s), and Selig Enterprises’s West Peachtree Street development (from $500,000s).
Elsewhere, smaller Midtown projects such as the 45-unit One Museum Place have delivered.
