Now, Bisnow reports another ocean-themed attraction could one day join the mix.
Atlanta-based Jacoby Development has posted conceptual plans on their website for a project called One Ocean Place. Intended to fill a large parcel bounded by Marietta Street, Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, and Luckie Street, the project would be a complement to the adjacent Georgia Aquarium.
According to the presentation package, the two-towered project would feature research facilities for marine life studies, event facilities, a theater, exhibition spaces, restaurants, retail storefronts, and a rooftop terrace (with ostensibly great, panoramic city views). The development would connect to the Georgia Aquarium parking deck via bridges across Luckie Street.
The proposal, while preliminary, has of course attracted the attention of the aquarium, which owns the parcel of land.
However outlandish the proposal may seem, Jacoby is no stranger to achieving large-scale intown developments. Through the years, the firm has delivered Atlantic Station and Porsche North America’s headquarters by the airport.
Representatives from the Georgia Aquarium noted that the concept was still very much preliminary, and that more information would be needed before the project would get approval.
If it were built, it would be well-served by hotels, including a new one slated to go up just a block away.
