There’s little doubt that Midtown boasts the most rapidly changing skyline in Atlanta.

With projects galore underway, such as Hilton’s Canopy hotel and Atlantic Station’s T3 West Midtown office complex, the neighborhood is fast becoming taller, denser, and ultimately more appealing to cityscape photographers.

And, as of this week, Midtown can add another name to its topped-out roster: Coda, a 21-story office tower erected at the corner of West Peachtree and 4th streets, which just completed vertical construction.

Coda is the third John Portman and Associates-designed project being developed on West Peachtree Street, neighbored by sibling builds that will bring 21 floors of offices for Fortune 500 health benefits company Anthem and another 23 stories of office space at the street’s 700 block.

Portman’s Leasing Director Travis Garland told Curbed Atlanta on Thursday that Coda should be finished by March.

The completed building would flaunt 645,000 square feet of office space, 22,000 square feet of retail and restaurant slots, and an 80,000-square-foot computing center owned by tech company DataBank.

According to Garland, 70 percent of the building has been pre-leased, and signed tenants include electronics manufacturer Keysights Technologies, elevator giant Thyssenkrupp, and sushi bowl spot Poke Burri, among others.

Georgia Tech, which has already started buildout work on the inside, will also fill some of the office space, said Garland.

Keysight’s interior construction is slated to kick off this winter, and many of the retail tenants will begin ratcheting up their spaces soon, he added.

The Anthem project, Garland said, is a year behind schedule, and the completion date has been pushed to March 1, 2020.

A timeline for the 712 West Peachtree development has yet to be announced.
