Four years ago, 12th & Midtown, a $2 billion mixed-use development being built by Selig Enterprises Inc. and Daniel Corp., was little more than an Atlanta nightclub, a couple of parking lots and a vision.

Today, the four-block project at the inter­section of 12th and Peachtree streets in Mid­town is nearly 40 percent complete and will eventually feature more than 3 million square feet of residential and commercial space.

The overall project comprises more than 1.2 million square feet of office space, more than 600 luxury hotel rooms, more than 1,000 residences and up to 300,000 square feet of retail. The project has been selected as Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards winner in the Best Overall Category.

12th & Midtown is expected to be the cornerstone of the 14-block Midtown Mile, which local boosters hope will become a retail destination much like Madison Avenue in New York City or the Magnificent Mile in Chicago.
