athens' ONE & only urban village

Scale Model by Macmillan Pazdan Smith Architects

100 Prince is a wholly unique project in Downtown Athens, GA. The community is a mixed-use development consisting of 126 permanent household apartments and approximately 30,200 square feet of commercial/retail space fronting Prince Avenue.  The commercial/retail space is anchored by an urban-scale grocery store.  The plan calls for the preservation and re-use of the original chapel building (circa 1913) located at the corner of Prince and Pulaski as a sit-down restaurant. 

It is a true Downtown urban village offering homes, food, groceries, retail, pedestrian plazas, parking and many other amenities for all Athenians. This walkable, pedestrian friendly urban village clearly distinguishes itself as a unique project on the Athens development scene.

The historic Chapel will be preserved and converted into a one-of-a-kind restaurant with timeless architectural details and atmosphere. The unique space and incredible location, at the west-end gateway to downtown, makes it an immediate Classic City destination.

The highly desirable urban townhomes and apartments feature 1 & 2 bedroom flats with a rooftop patio and other site amenities. The scale and architectural styles of these homes are inspired by the architecture in the adjacent neighborhoods of Pulaski, Childs Street and the Bottleworks.
