Private international real estate investment firm Newport has announced it is moving forward with plans to redevelop 222 Mitchell, the largest holding in the developer’s ambitious South Dwntn redevelopment project, according to a press release. Newport is currently in the process of submitting permit applications to the city for the address which calls for a 333,000-square-foot mixed-use space with a 27,000-square-foot rooftop.

The mixed-use development will offer 217,000 square-feet of office space and 72,000 square-feet of retail space, topped with a private events space and a rooftop restaurant that offers views of the city skyline.

“After years of planning and programming, we are looking forward to continuing the momentum of restoring and reviving South Downtown with the development of our largest existing project within the community, 222 Mitchell Street,” Newport Senior Vice President April Stammel said in the release. “This area is destined to be thriving, diverse and accessible for all Atlantans. We’re grateful for the rich history that exists here, all the stories that have unfolded within these buildings, and are committed to retaining the character of the community.”
