Atlanta's latest boutique office project with a social rooftop is planned for a busy corner of booming Midtown. Officials with Parkside Partners tell Curbed they plan to redevelop a 1280 W. Peachtree Street building into "16th Station," a Class A office property that'll feature an industrial, loft-style design with an emphasis on glass. The project — located at the southwest corner of West Peachtree Street, across the street from the Artmore Hotel and Arts Center MARTA Station — will launch as soon as Parkside signs a lead tenant, with a projected opening of early 2017. The end product could be one juicy hunk of millennial bait.
Occupants of the 40,000-square-foot property will work among concrete ceiling beams and polished concrete floors, with access to a rooftop terrace that'll boast a lounge, fire pit and skyline views. The goal is to create "the hip, industrial-loft aesthetic more commonly found at properties in Westside and other districts," Kyle Jenks, Founding Principal of Parkside Partners, said in a press release. Added colleague Eli Green: "We're targeting financial and technology firms, but we have also experienced strong interest from other businesses as well." The venture, as officials pointed out, would join a groundswell of some $1 billion in Midtown construction activity (see it all mapped here) that's spilling far beyond Peachtree Street.
