Kaplan Residential is proposing a 331-unit apartment building along Centennial Olympic Park Drive.
The 12-story building is the latest boost for downtown, where hotel and residential developers and tourist attractions are clustering around the Centennial Olympic Park area.
Kaplan’s nearly 3-acre site sits diagonal from the Center for Civil & Human Rights and the Georgia Aquarium.
The developer wants to break ground by the end of the year or early 2017.
“We have met with the city and made it clear that we want a game-changer for downtown,” Kaplan Residential Chairman and CEO Morris Kaplan tells Atlanta Business Chronicle. “We think our project can make a statement – that it will turn some heads.”
