A long-empty, prominent site on the so-called Midtown Mile of Peachtree Street could soon see construction of a signature residential tower.
Developer Trillist is hoping to turn the parking lot on Peachtree Street, between 12th and 14th streets (13th does not exist on the western side of Peachtree) into a 45-story development to include 323 residential units and 21,500 square feet of retail space. According to What Now Atlanta, the developer showed off the SRSSA-designed tower at the July Midtown DRC meeting.
Trillist is not the first developer to propose a building on the high-profile site.
The meeting also brought news of what could be the tallest tower in Midtown, located just a few blocks northwest of the Trillist site. It that 74-story venture materializes, it would be the tallest building erected in Atlanta since the early 1990s.
This summer has been a big one for Trillist. Just last month, the company unveiled plans for a condo tower a block away from the Peachtree Street site.
That project — an SLS Hotel and Residences, to be located at the corner of Crescent Avenue and 13th Street — is slated to rise 42 stories and feature 213 hotel rooms and 56 condo residences. Trillist hopes to break ground on the project early next year, with an opening projected in 2019.
Elsewhere, Trillist recently topped out the ultra-luxe YOO on the Park apartment project down the street near Piedmont Park.
