Located at 1055 Howell Mill Road, the 12-story, 215,000 rentable square foot Class A Star Metals Offices will be situated directly across the street from Star Metals Residences, the development’s multi-family residential component which will be the Company’s 83rd development project. Star Metals Residences is scheduled to break ground in the second quarter of 2017.

Leasing for Star Metals Offices is being managed by the Atlanta office of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), headed by Jeff Bellamy, Managing Director of JLL.

Conveniently located four blocks from Georgia Tech, the development will establish itself as a positive and strategic location at a pivotal time as Atlanta’s thriving economic and employment growth is attracting top talent.

Star Metals Offices will offer approximately 185,000 rentable square feet of Class A LEED certified office space, 8,200 square feet of second floor showroom space overlooking Howell Mill Road and 30,000 square feet of high ceiling retail on the ground floor providing the ideal mix of food, beverage, entertainment and exercise options for tenants, Platinum Wired Certification, six levels of parking, along with an array of tenant amenities and an above market parking ratio of 3.5 spaces per 1,000 square feet.

Star Metals Offices caters to innovative professionals and tech-savvy companies seeking a superior workplace to recruit and retain Atlanta’s most talented and competitive workforce. Set in the epicenter of West Midtown’s trendy neighborhood, Star Metals uniquely offers its residents and tenants modern living and work spaces while being just footsteps away from Atlanta’s vibrant restaurant scene, high-end shops and everyday conveniences.

“Our team is extremely proud to represent the office component of Star Metals,” adds Jeff Bellamy, Managing Director of JLL. “We are confident that as Star Metals transforms West Midtown, Star Metals Offices will become the definitive business address within this evolving submarket.”

When The Allen Morris Company approached us about a partnership, we knew it was a good fit,” added David Cochran, President and CEO of Paces Properties. “Our values are aligned and our knowledge of the Atlanta market is matched. We’re very pleased to announce our collaboration and are excited to see everything come together.”

Designed by award-winning and internationally respected design architect Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture, Dwell Design Studio, and Warner Summers Architecture firm, both buildings offer a confluence of modern luxury and contemporary amenities that will enhance the West Midtown community while honoring the historical composition and materials of the old rail yards for which West Midtown is known.

Allen Morris, Chairman and CEO of The Allen Morris Company. “Star Metals Offices, like the whole of Star Metals Atlanta, celebrates West Midtown’s historical culture, economic market and lifestyle.”
