Construction is finally underway on a distinctive Peachtree Street midcentury office building at the southern end of Buckhead, promising a refreshed facade and new amenities galore.
Renovations at the unintentionally patriotic 1776 Peachtree building (near the point where Peachtree Street becomes Peachtree Road) were originally supposed to be complete by now, according to the building’s website.
The building sold more than two years ago, paving the way for the transformative project. Last summer, details emerged about the overhaul, showing the inclusion of a rooftop restaurant, which promises sweeping views of Atlanta’s skyline.
While tenant spaces and the lobby are getting much-needed upgrades, the rooftop transformation is likely to generate the most buzz. Plans, which are still being refined, call for a rooftop restaurant and bar serving lunch, dinner, and drinks, as well as a tenant-only rooftop lounge.
Another rooftop venue in the city—especially in the South Buckhead area—will be a welcome addition to the inexplicably limited options operating in the city today.
No word on when diners will get a chance to hang out al fresco.
