arctk2014 you should really consider running for Mayor in 4 years because your "urban-centric" viewpoint are just what the city needs. On a personal note, I hope I can be as cool as you are when I am 85 and bed bound. As always, thanks for your very thoughtful and provocative insights.
Not sure if that's a compliment or what....will you be my campaign manager?

Vue houses 271 residential units within The Quarter Upper Westside, a master planned, mixed use development in this burgeoning, eclectic northwest Atlanta neighborhood. Three 4/5 story split buildings are designed to reflect the neighborhood’s industrial roots, with metal trim, large warehouse style windows and brick grid. The terracing slope of the site gives way to gorgeous views of the Atlanta skyline. Residents enjoy the comfort and convenience of a walkable community with 35,000 square feet of on-site dining, shopping and entertainment. The 7,000 SF clubroom and fitness area overlook an expansive 11,750 SF pool courtyard with lounge seating and an outdoor kitchen. Amenities include a dog spa, bark park and bike shop. Site design anticipates direct connectivity to the future 6 mile paved trail extension that will link the Silver Comet Trail to the Atlanta Beltline.




This bites. Not much of a view of the skyline... so... why... call it the VUE????

Per Georgia Secretary of State's corporation search, BigMet Project Owner, LLC, is managed by BigMet, LLC, whose business address is 171 17th St NW, Suite 1200.

That is Carter's address: http://www.carterusa.com/contact

Probably something Summerhill/Georgia State Related.

Meh, they're both pretty "bleh!"

I guess if the standard is compared to other lower class hotels, they're not bad.

Video of The Interlock

Click on link to view the video. This is a super cool development. With this and Star Metals, I think West Midtown may be the place to be and be seen in 2020.
