January 2017 is shaping up to be a destructive time in the southern reaches of Buckhead, along Peachtree Road.
The modern glass building will replace the seven-story Sheffield Medical office tower, which has stood on the site since the 1960s.
Meanwhile, across the street, demolition is proceeding on a range of one-story retail spaces in preparation for construction of a seven-story medical office building, with senior housing and street-front retail.
The Cornerstone Medical Center will replace the long-abandoned (and now demolished) Harry’s in a Hurry, a liquor store, a dry cleaner, and Chick-fil-A.
For those craving chicken sandwiches in South Buckhead, the developer promises Chick-fil-A will return to the new building.
