What was once slated to be one of Buckhead's tallest high-rises is finally moving forward next to Phipps Plaza. According to BisNOW, 1000 Park Avenue is negotiating the permitting process in anticipation of commencing construction. When plans were first unveiled back in mid-2013, the developer Wood Partners hoped to build a 39-story tower. However, it was announced early last year that the tower would be much shorter, a mere 27 stories. Nonetheless, with permits in process, the tower gets added to the list of projects happening in the neighborhood.
Designed by Reese Vanderbilt, the building will feature 224 units — a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations — with around 415,000 square feet. It will join three projects already underway in the superblock that includes Phipps Plaza. In other nearby development news, a fancy new two-story Ecco is slated to start construction this year.
