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.
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.
