Located on Peachtree Road near Ga. Highway 400, Sovereign — Buckhead’s tallest, twistiest tower — could soon have a twin.

A similarly swirly high-rise and a second, more boxy brother are planned in Buckhead, just across the highway from the 50-story, recession-era Sovereign.

According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Regent Partners and Batson-Cook are hoping to bring the two towers to the adjacent sites along what could eventually become PARK400.

While plans have been in the works for years, arguably the most important component — $400 million in financing — is finally secured, paving the way for the purchase of the land just last week, the ABC reports.

Like Sovereign, the proposed development would contain a mix of 60 condos and more than half-a-million square feet of office space. The second tower would include some 300 apartments.

Designed by Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, and Stewart — the same firm behind the first tower — the Sovereign lookalike appears to be about 10 stories shorter than its counterpart.

It’s unclear how these two buildings will be developed in such close proximity to Apogee Buckhead — a 35-story apartment tower planned to replace the Christian Church Buckhead on the same block as the Regent Partners towers.

No word yet on when work might begin.
