Coming Soon To Macon, Ga.
Capricorn Records Buildings Renovations
The Lofts at Capricorn project is being built around the former Capricorn Records recording studio at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd between Plum and Poplar streets. The developers, Sierra Development and Southern Pine Plantation, are building a mixed-use development with apartments, offices, retail facilities, and a club house with a cyber cafe. A partnership between the developers & Mercer University, called Mercer at Capricorn, will bring the recording studio back to life and add rehearsal rooms for musicians to hone their craft.
The Capricorn Records executive office building at 535 D.T. Walton Sr. Way is also under construction. Saved from demolition, this building is currently undergoing a complete renovation.
The Exchange Block Project
The mixed-use development will include a six-story, 140-room Hyatt Place Hotel, more than 130 apartments, a restaurant, retail shops, and a multi-level parking garage that will add several hundred parking spaces. It will be built in the block bounded by Poplar, Second, Plum and First streets. The project will be a link between other businesses and lofts in the core of downtown Macon and the city's planned square. Work on the hotel is expected to begin in August 2017 & will take about 14 months.
