Wedge-shaped infill project rises up near Atlantic Station

An infill project with unique, flatiron-like designs is nearing top-out in Atlantic Station’s backyard, claiming a site that’d been a source of developer interest and proposals for several years.

Called 400 Bishop for its address, the project by Charleston-based Middle Street Partners has risen on a previously vacant, 1.4-acre site just north of Atlantic Station’s Target in the Loring Heights neighborhood.

Renderings indicate the building will top out at 11 stories on land formerly zoned for heavy industrial uses. According to Middle Street, the project started in September 2022 and will deliver 274 units.

Several outdoor amenities areas will extend from the wedge-shaped building’s north and east faces, and units along Bishop Street at ground level will function as live-work properties, according to plans approved by the city in 2021.

Situated next to active Norfolk Southern railroad lines, the apartments would range from one to three bedrooms, with market-rate rents between roughly $1,500 (670 square feet) up to $3,000 (1,450 square feet) monthly, according to 2021 filings.

We reached out to Middle Street officials this week for a construction update and more details but hadn’t heard back as of press time.

Elsewhere in Atlanta, Middle Street’s debut project is a mixed-use apartment venture fronting the BeltLine’s Southside Trail corridor in Grant Park. The company is also building two Midtown towers, rising 36 and 33 stories, on the former site of longstanding establishments Einstein’s and Joe’s On Juniper.

Other ideas hatched for the 400 Bishop site failed to move forward. (Ditto for a pedestrian bridge that would have been built over the adjacent railroad tracks for quicker access between Loring Heights and Atlantic Station.)

Plans that emerged in 2019 by another development group, Track West Partners, called for 130,000 square feet of creative offices above retail in a shorter building. Other concepts have called for just 26,000 square feet of offices in four stories, with a “post-COVID-era wellness plan” and emphasis on city views.
