Atlantic Station is an interesting mash-up of high-rise offices and residences, big-box retailers, boutique shopping and dining options, and sprawling vacant lots. And, well, holes.
But now, plans are finally moving forward on an office block slated to fill one of those large voids along 17th Street.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Hines is ready to begin construction early next year on the long-anticipated “T3 West Midtown” mid-rise office building, which is promising a distinct look and vibe like Atlanta hasn’t seen.
The seven-story structure will rise across from the Millennium Gate Arch, at the northwest corner of 17th and State streets, on an empty lot near Target.
Designed by Chicago-based HPA, the building will have an industrial feel, with exposed wooden structure throughout. The facade will be made of steel, harkening back to the origins of the site as the Atlantic Steel Mill.
It’s been nearly three years since plans were revealed for the construction of multiple office buildings to be collectively known as “Atlantic Yards.” Development plans for the first piece are ambitious, with Hines eyeing an opening of the T3 project in the second quarter of 2019.
