An overview of what was to come...and came...

[IMG 1010 Midtown]ATLANTA (August 4, 2006) — Daniel Corporation, Selig Enterprises, Inc. and the Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund (CJUF) have announced development plans for 1010 Midtown, a 35-story, 630,000-square-foot mixed-use development featuring 443 high-rise condominiums and 38,000 square feet of retail and dining space. The two-acre site is located on Peachtree Street between 11th and 12th streets. Construction for 1010 Midtown is slated to begin August 2006 with the first homes available in the fall of 2008 and retail opening in early 2009.

This is the development team’s second venture in Atlanta. Previously, the partners created the highly successful The Plaza Midtown mixed-use development, consisting of two towers with 418 condominiums atop approximately 70,000 square feet of ground floor retail anchored by a 33,000-square-foot Publix. “Atlanta has embraced intown living and the convenient, sophisticated lifestyle it brings. It is time to offer a commensurate product type,” said Steve Baile, vice president, Daniel Corp. “We have been planning 1010 Midtown for a long time and are excited to begin construction of this project.” 1010 Midtown is set to be the cornerstone of Midtown Alliance’s “Midtown Mile” — the 14-block Peachtree Street corridor between North Avenue and 14th Stree

The development will include 38,000 square feet of street-level retail space that will offer boutique shopping and restaurants and is an exciting step toward Midtown Alliance’s goal of two million square feet of retail development. “This announcement is a giant leap toward our goal of bringing even more quality retail and residential opportunities to Midtown,” said Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin. “Attracting developers and investors of this caliber and with this kind of commitment to urban renewal is a big win for our city.” “The Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund is about revitalizing communities by bringing quality residential and retail to areas like Midtown that are beginning to grow,” said CJUF Partner Earvin “Magic” Johnson. “Mayor Franklin’s leadership in urban redevelopment is an important factor in our interest to pursue additional opportunities in Atlanta.”

1010 Midtown’s upscale design will attract sophisticated buyers — from young professionals to empty nesters. Both will be attracted to 1010 Midtown’s luxury living in a central location. One-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans with magnificent views will feature 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, stone baths and large balconies. Residents will also enjoy resort-inspired amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, clubroom, swimming pool, and private deck-top plaza with panoramic views of the downtown skyline. The 1010 Midtown project is located on a premier site in Midtown. The shape of the site was a challenge that inspired the design team to create a unique building that relates to the curvature of Peachtree Street. The development team’s commitment and vision to raise the bar on Midtown residential and retail allowed the design team to create one of the Midtown Mile’s premier mixed-use facilities. “

The success of The Plaza Midtown made partnering with Daniel Corp. and Canyon-Johnson again a given,” said Scott Selig, vice president, Selig Enterprises. “Our teams share the same vision — creating a Midtown where residents and visitors can walk to restaurants, shops, entertainment and more.” “This is the second of what we anticipate will be many future investments for Canyon-Johnson in Atlanta,” said CJUF Managing Partner Bobby Turner. “Daniel Corporation and Selig Enterprises are proven and valuable partners who have the experience to maximize the potential Midtown offers. Midtown epitomizes the type of densely populated, ethnically diverse areas in which our fund invests.”
