A long-planned office building will soon begin construction at Atlantic Station, the first infusion of new office space at the mixed-use mini-city in years.
Bisnow reports that Hines plans to begin construction on T3 West Midtown within the next 90 days. When complete, the building will provide more than 200,000 square feet of office space, all with an industrial vibe.
The seven-story structure—with its unique timber framing, a first for larger buildings in Atlanta—will rise across the street from the Millennium Gate Arch, at the northwest corner of 17th and State streets, on an empty lot near Target.
Designed by Chicago-based HPA, the building will have an industrial feel, with exposed wooden structure throughout the interior. The facade will be made of steel, harkening back to the origins of the site as the Atlantic Steel Mill.
Construction was initially slated to begin late last year, with completion expected by the end of the year. With the delayed start, one would expect the building to be finished in 2019 now.
T3 West Midtown is the first of two planned office developments, which will ultimately bring more than 700,000 square feet of new space to the area. The other, Atlantic Yards, would rise at the eastern end of Atlantic Station, along 17th Street, and comprise two structures facing Midtown.
Depending on how well T3 leasing goes, construction could begin on Atlantic Yards soon after.
