Designs for the final piece of cattle barn redevelopment have been revealed

Brady Street in West Midtown is starting to look like the next Howell Mill.

In just the past two weeks, plans have surfaced along the relatively quiet back street of Marietta Street Artery for a massive mixed-use project that would replace a combined nightclub and adjoining lounge of 700 homes, and most recently a 14-story office project that would be completed. Brickworks Retail Complex.

Between these two locations, a project called 926 Brady is in progress that will be the final piece for adaptive reuse from the former Miller Union Stockyards.

The developers of the 1930s warehouse, Clarion Partners and West Bridge, laid out detailed plans this week for what they call the last undeveloped building in the core neighborhood.

Located at the corner of 10th Street and Brady Avenue, adjacent to a recently installed pocket park and bike tuning station, the 926 Brady Project faces a new protected bike path that will connect the street to the Marietta Street bike lanes.

In the early 1900s, the railroad-connected complex served as a meatpacking plant and storage basin—Miller Union Stockyards—for Atlanta’s growing post-Resurrection population.

Westbridge began redeveloping adjacent buildings on its 3-acre campus in 2016, aiming for a cool aesthetic that helped attract tenants such as the duckpin bowling alley Painted Duck, casual Italian eatery Baffi Atlanta, neighborhood eatery and Nick’s Westside bar.

The offices in Stockyards Atlanta, as the adaptively reused complex is called, are also home to the regional headquarters of energy drink giant Red Bull, global manufacturer Manning Commercial, and advertising and marketing firm Fitzco.

As a final component, the 926 Brady will contain 36,000 square feet of substantial creative office space, aiming to preserve the area’s historic character, according to the developers.

At the top of the building, there will be an indoor and outdoor balcony on the second floor for tenants intended to capture skyline views.

Joshua Mandelberger, Vice President of Asset Management at Clarion Partners, said Joshua Mandelberger in a prepared statement was provided to Urbanize Atlanta.

Construction has begun in recent weeks on Project 926 Brady, with completion due in the second quarter of next year.
