Midtown Atlanta tower proposal at 17th and Peachtree has stalled

Unveiled nearly a year ago, the tower would be the tallest in northern Midtown—if it ever gets off the drawing board

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.
