Hotel, Condos Headed Next Door To WellStar Atlanta Medical Center
A high-rise student housing building on Boulevard is about to get new neighbors—a hotel and a condo tower.
Nazar Holdings has applied for a special permit with the City of Atlanta to allow a mix of uses at 274 Boulevard Ave, a parcel that connects to 444 Highland, the skinny student housing tower next door to WellStar Atlanta Medical Center in the Old Fourth Ward. Atlanta architect Peter Drey has been tapped to help Nazar usher in its vision, and Peter tells us the project is “really in the earliest phases.”
But there are some details: The developer is eyeing a 300-unit condo project and a 200-key hotel with street-level retail, Peter says. There is no flag operator for the hotel as of yet, he adds.
