A towering proposal at the northern reaches of Midtown may be relegated to the list of mega-projects that never happened.
Last April, renderings were released for a two-tower, mixed-use development at the northeast corner of Peachtree and 17th streets, on the cusp of Ansley Park.
Designed by locally based architecture firm Stevens & Wilkinson, the complex was intended to encompass more than 660,000 square feet of space.
The 46-story tower, justified to the streetcorner of the site, was designed to contain residences and a hotel.
To the north, connected to the tower by a gallery, a stepped 11-story building with green terraces facing Ansley Park was to hold offices and retail.
Requests to developer the Simpson Organization for updates have gone unanswered, but a source familiar with the project indicates financing troubles have all but killed the project.
If we hear back from the Simpson Organization, we’ll add an update.
