Uptown’s newest luxury apartment tower is getting ready for residents as construction nears completion, with a website now online and a temporary leasing office opening soon.

The Mint Musuem apartment tower, developed by Childress Klein, totals 43 stories and sits atop the Mint Museum, at 525 South Church Street. The tower crane constructing the project was recently removed, and workers are now moving into the final phase of construction.

With Lincoln Property managing the tower, marketing efforts are underway to lure renters. The 394-unit tower is likely to be among the most expensive in the city, with rents on par with or above other uptown properties such as The Vue or Element (Sample rents: $2,314 for a 1,025 square-foot apartment at the Vue, $2,412 for a 1,232 square-foot apartment at Element).

A website for the tower is active, with renderings, the option to join a pre-leasing mailing list and a slogan (“Brilliantly uptown. Beautifully upscale.”). The earliest available move-in date listed on the website is March 2017. There are no prices listed yet for the apartments, which include one-, two-bedroom and penthouse units.

A temporary leasing office is set to open in September at the Mint Museum building.

In a construction update sent this week, Childress Klein said workers have finished exterior framing, curtain wall glass and electrical fittings in units up to the tower’s 43rd level. Other tasks are progressing at different rates: Doors, cabinets and appliances are installed up to level 35, insulation to level 40 and countertops up to level 34, for example.
