No2 Opus Place, a high-end condo and hotel tower proposal announced last year as Atlanta’s second tallest building, hasn’t started construction. But it’s already lost the title.
A new rendering has been released showing a substantially shorter tower than the originally proposed 74-story behemoth revealed back in July.
In a statement emailed to Curbed Atlanta, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties’ CITY HAUS Division says the tower is now slated to rise just 53 stories.
While the modified building would retain the title of tallest residential tower in the city, it will no longer lord over Midtown like initially designed.
Originally intended to house more than 400 condos and 180 hotel suites, the building is now going all-residential, according to a press release.
The release goes on to say the decrease in height is due to the removal of the hotel component from the tower, and it hints that more units have been added, though no final count is given.
With only condos, the building will be able to offer lower monthly fees and a greater level of amenities, says Kerman Haynes, VP of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties’ CITY HAUS Division.
Billed as a “lifestyle tower,” the Perkins + Will-designed building is planned to be part of a larger campus along 14th Street. While construction fences are now up, no word on when (or if) the building will start to rise.
