Atlanta-based Windsor Stevens is behind the scheduled project. The owner and developer aims to begin building in July or August, Windsor Stevens Managing Partner Rod Mullice told the website. It will take approximately two years to complete. Development is budgeted at $39.4 million, an Invest Atlanta project fact sheet obtained by What Now Atlanta said.

Initially, The Proctor, which will be constructed at the vacant 703 Lindsay St. NW lot, was a condominium complex. Now, in addition to primarily housing apartments, it will have six live-work units meant to enhance entrepreneurial opportunities. Two dozen two-bedroom units, 87 one-bedrooms and 21 studios will be included. Additionally, 14 units will be reserved for homes at 50% or under the local average median income. Another 18 homes will be saved for homes at 80% or under the average median income.
