Crews have begun working on a multifamily component of a midtown mixed-use development called Barclay. The apartments will be adjacent to The Pointe at Barclay, a dining and entertainment center that will be anchored by a 14-screen Stone Theatres movie theater expected to open next year.

The project: Element Barclay on South 17th St., a 402-unit luxury apartment community that will consist of nine three-story, garden-style apartment buildings and resident amenities that include a clubhouse, resort-style saltwater pool, bocce ball court, dog park and outdoor fireplaces and grilling areas. 

Developers and builders:  Childress Klein, one of the largest real estate firms in the southeastern U.S., is the developer. The development team includes general contractor Harold K. Jordan & Co Inc., architect Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, civil engineer Hanover Design Services and hardscape and landscape designer Mihaly Land Design.

What’s next: The first phase of 258 units is currently under construction, and the first apartments at Element Barclay (rendering below) are expected to be available for occupancy in the summer of 2017.  Leasing is set to start in the spring of 2017.
