A fresh batch of renderings unveiled today gives the clearest indication to date of what Portman & Associates’ high-tech complex at Tech Square will be.

As we speak, an official groundbreaking ceremony for Coda is underway, commemorating the Midtown construction activity we spotted last week. Expect details from the ceremony soon, and have a gander at refined images provided by Portman’s team below.

In a release today, officials described Coda as “a 770,000-square foot mixed-use complex that will provide innovative companies the rare opportunity to co-locate with one another, and alongside world-class researchers and faculty from Georgia Tech, which is ranked among the top 10 public universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report.”

Along with the Crum & Forster Building’s facade, the project will include at least one of Portman’s distinctive mushroom columns, a massive breezeway, and what looks like a sizable outdoor television for Tech football games.

Technically, Portman will own the 21-story complex, and Tech will serve as the anchor tenant, contributing to a groundswell of development on both the Spring and West Peachtree street corridors. At last check, Coda was projected to debut in 2019.
