SK+IPRESS DECEMBER 2018
SK+I DESIGNED MODERA MIDTOWN AS A NEW HIGHRISE COMMUNITY DESTINED TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AMENITY-RICH BUILDINGS IN ATLANTA. Located
within a five-minute walk from the MARTA, the new high-rise offers unblocked views of Downtown, Midtown, and the Georgia Tech campus and will bring a new level of luxury and style to the western edge of the midtown area. SK+I worked closely with the development team and the local jurisdiction to create a compelling design that helped transform the 8th Street corridor. The SK+I architects worked hand-in-hand with the developer, Mill Creek Residential, for five years to provide 435 state-of-theart luxury units and innovative boutique amenities anchored by a selection of chefdriven restaurants at lobby level. The SK+I team designed Modera Midtown with an innovative hybrid structural system comprised of wood framing wrapped around a central concrete core, which allows for efficient organization of space, multi-tier terraces, and expansive outdoor amenity spaces.

With a textured white and dark gray facade, the buildings’ contemporary urban architecture further elevates the transforming midtown strip. Additionally, SK+I added its signature touch—vibrantlycolored composite panels—to accentuate entry points and enhance the street-level experience of the building. The building features a sky lounge, a 1/8 mile suspended running track elevated 100’ above street level, and three rooftop terraces, two of which are equipped with pools—one on the seventh floor and another on the 26th—and sweeping views of the skyline. With multiple two-story common areas including a yoga studio, club rooms, bars, fitness gym, and a loaded dog park, there’s no shortage of space for residents to unwind. The development project is a testament to a successful elegantly designed building. Midtown is an excellent addition to Atlanta’s most exciting neighborhood and is at the epicenter of a vibrant, creative hub boasting the region’s most dynamic workspaces and a diverse mix of savvy, young professionals.
