Feast Your Eyes Upon this Midtown Tower Vision on Peachtree

New, 49 comments

At 45 stories, the high-rise portion could be Midtown's tallest project since the recession

Fresh, detailed renderings give an idea what a sizable mixed-use project could look like at the northeast corner of Peachtree and 17th streets in Midtown, the current site of three commercial buildings and a pocket park. The development, first proposed by real estate investors The Simpson Organization last summer, could go a long way in beefing up Midtown's skyline to the north.

By recent development standards, the proposal is dramatic. It would feature two buildings — 45 and 11 stories, respectively — housing offices, residential, and commercial space. Designed by Stevens & Wilkinson, it could feature 190,000 square feet of office space, 12,200 square feet of retail, 206 residences, and 140 hotel rooms.

The Simpson Organization brought its plans before a Midtown Development Review Committee last summer, and committee members requested more specifics regarding elements impacting the street-level experience. They also advised developers to run their plans by the Ansley Park Neighborhood Association.

The Midtown Alliance lists the project as being in planning phases with a TBD delivery. In August, Bisnow reported the project had yet to line up financing but was entering the permitting phase.

Based in downtown Atlanta, the firm behind the renderings also designed Georgia State University's new College of Law and Liberty Plaza downtown, along with residential projects from Castleberry Hill to Decatur, including the Flats at Poncey City Market. Their portfolio suggests the Peachtree tower could be their largest undertaking to date.
