Green Street and Midas Hospitality are proposing a 25 story (294 feet tall), 600,000 square-foot building on about 0.88 acres at 10 S Central at the corner with Forsyth where World News used to operate. The architect is Green Street’s HDA Architects. The Clayton Board of Aldermen will consider the proposal at its June 14th meeting. The estimate project cost is $100M.
From the proposal:
The hotel will consist of approximately 180 rooms on Levels 2 – 6 and Levels 8 – 11. On Level 7 there will be a hotel ballroom, meeting rooms, boardroom, restaurant, bar, and an outdoor terrace. The restaurant, bar, and outdoor terrace will be open to the general public. There will be approximately 73 high end condos on Levels 12 – 24. On Level 25 there will be an indoor amenity area and an outdoor amenity area for use by condo owners. On Level 1 there will be the hotel lobby, a restaurant and bar, and a separate entrance/lobby for the condos. The restaurant and bar on this floor will also be open to the public. On Level -1 there is a small retail space accessible from the public sidewalk. Adjacent to the 25-story tower will be a parking garage with 3 levels of parking below grade for condo owners (approximately 154 spaces) and 5 levels of parking above grade for hotel, restaurant, bar, ballroom guests, and general parking for the public (approximately 276spaces).
The entrance to the condos would be on Forsyth and the entrance tot he hotel on Central. The alley from Forsyth would be vacated.
A mural on the parking garage would help brighten viewers’ day in the surface parking lot to the south.
Central Ave street face. The three-lane entrance to the garage is at the right.
It’s a shame to lose more of Clayton’s fine-grained development pattern. Maybe next time build on a surface parking lot?
