Loudermilk Companies has released renderings for the latest proposed new building on East Paces Ferry Road, just steps from OliverMcMillan's Buckhead Atlanta. The 12-story building is taller and far less hideous than the previously released scheme to go at 359 East Paces Ferry. Designed by local firm Rule Joy Trammell Rubio, the proposal is a modern-style glass, brick and stone structure with 125,000 square feet of office space atop a parking deck, with street front retail at the base, reports BuckheadView. The building would continue the trend of urbanization in the corridor, extending high-rise development into the blocks of Buckhead Village off Peachtree Road.
In addition to the 359 proposal, BuckheadView reports that Loudermilk is looking to begin work on the site bounded by Peachtree Road, East Paces Ferry and Bolling Way in the next year or so, following the recent demolition of several buildings on the site. The two Loudermilk builds are just a few of the projects slated to drastically change the character of the neighborhood, which until recently was full of low-slung office buildings, strip centers and older homes. With a multitude of apartments, offices and retail likely in the Buckhead Village pipeline, Buckhead continues to boom.
