Buckhead Demo Signals New Office Development

New, 8 comments

Project is slated to rise 12 stories, bringing offices, street retail, and plenty of parking to Buckhead Village

When things get demolished in the booming Buckhead Village submarket, it normally means the construction of a new building will begin lickety-split.

BisNow reports the demolition of a woefully dated four-story office building on East Paces Ferry Road has begun. Loudermilk Companies is planning a 12-story office tower with a dose of retail to replace the relic.

While the old building housed 30,000 square feet of office space, the new mixed-use tower could bring density to the tune of 125,000 square feet. Loudermilk is currently in talks with potential tenants, including State Bank & Trust, but nothing is official yet.

Designed by local firm Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, the building has a classical leaning, with a three-story stone base and brick and glass above, a radical change from initial concepts.

Permits have been issued for construction of the new building, though no specific timeline for a start (or completion) has been released. Construction may be held up until leases are signed, allowing for financing to be secured.
