I was at the Design Review Committee Meeting (DRC) of the Midtown Alliance when this project was first presented.
The website, What Now Atlanta featured these renderings of the building proposed for the corner of 17th and Peachtree Streets. Keep in mind, this is NOT THE VACANT corner that exists and is owned by Dewberry Capital, but the corner where the TSW Architects office is. Think the Ansley Park side of the street! Shreek!
This new development calls for 45 stories which would make it quite a landmark building on Peachtree Street and in this area! The lower building pictured to the left will be 11 stories.
The initial proposal calls for 190,000 square feet of office space, 12,000 sq.ft. of retail, 206 “residences” and 140 hotel rooms. One would hope for condominiums that would be “for sale” but recent trends point to all rental inventory in Midtown!
This end of Peachtree Street has seen little development, with the exception of the current One Museum Place that is under construction. Most of Peachtree Street in this area is occupied with existing buildings that would NOT be ripe for a tear down and build like this corner is. And then, there is the empty Dewberry lot….that remains….
Let’s keep a watch on this one and see what happens!
