A pioneer in Buckhead high-rise transit connectedness is undergoing a modern makeover.

Overlooking Lenox Square and linking to the adjacent MARTA station, the slope-roofed Atlanta Plaza is seeing “major renovations” by new owners Banyan Street Capital, following the building’s $137-million sale a year ago, officials announced this week.

Designs by architects Perkins + Will are employing “modern strategies for workplace design” that include a “dramatic transformation of the lobby and entry to the building, added amenities and outdoor workspaces, upgraded corridors, and expanded conference facilities,” per a press release.

This reimagined entry will open to East Paces Ferry Road, which is being expanded via the Buckhead CID.

It sounds like the building is being positioned as a prime destination for millennial talent, with its onsite bike storage and showers, proximity to PATH400, and its claim as “one of the few buildings in metro Atlanta offering direct covered access to public transit,” officials said.

The refreshed MARTA connection.

Twenty percent of the 34-story tower is available. As of now, notable tenants include Salesforce, Securities and Exchange Commission, Wells Fargo, RentPath, and Rubicon, officials said.

Completed in 1986, Atlanta Plaza joins 1100 Peachtree as the 25th tallest buildings in the city.
