Atlanta developer expanding its Victory Park vision of high-rise living

Novare Group
The 24-story, 336-unit luxury residential tower was recently completed by an Atlanta-based developer eyeing a nearby site in Victory Park.

An Atlanta-based development firm Novare Group is expanding its vision of high-rise living in Victory Park, with perhaps another SkyHouse tower.

This year, the company in partnership with Batson-Cook Development Co. recently finished its luxury high-rise at 2200 N. Lamar St. targeting "young renters" and "Generation Y professionals" working in downtown and Uptown.

The 24-story, 336-unit luxury residential tower is one of Novare Group's SkyHouse concepts, which have been popular in cities like Austin, Houston and Atlanta.

Now, it appears that Novare Group wants to expand that vision to include another tower — which has yet to be outlined. The company filed a site plan on a tract adjacent to the AudiPark Garage near the American Airlines Center.

A spokesman for Novare Group confirmed the filing, but said the details of the possible development are still under wraps.

The group's newly completed SkyHouse project includes one-, two- and three-bedroom units with high-end finishes and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The luxury tower includes amenities such as the signature SkyHouse clubroom, fitness area and outdoor plazas with a swimming pool, lounges and fireplaces on the building's 24th floor.

Last go-around, Novare Group President Jim Borders said the SkyHouse in Victory Park willhelp serve the largest employment center in the growing region.
