Novare's building won't even be in the skyline soon enough. Apogee will cover it up completely from the only direction its really visible.

I think that one day in the somewhat distant future, we'll be glad that some of these buildings used detached garages rather than pedistals. Those garages can easily be torn down to make room for a productive space for people to live and work. That will be a day when we're not really using personal vehicles in cities and we'll be looking to figure out how to retrofit or remove these parking deadspaces. ....maybe not in my lifetime, but one day

^that is very true.

Also from the south view it's being covered up by post millennium. Not sure that's a good thing though

Kind of a nice problem to have - one new building being obscured by another new building and so on.

Some cities would love to have that problem for sure!

On that note, Uber's first self driving taxis launched in Pittsburgh today!

I think Atlantic House is perfect for that site. It complements the Gothic architecture surrounding it. Nicely fills in the Midtown skyline when driving south on the connector from Buckhead. Novare has been hit or miss at times. But this is definitely one they got right.

This has been something I have thought a lot about too. All of those Skyhouses around town could one day be buildings without any parking at all.

"Gothic architecture"? I think you meant Post-Modern (the style/movement Philip Johnson was most associated with in his career). (Note there are no pointed arches or buttresses on these buildings).

One Atlantic Center I would characterize as Art Deco.

FYI, X's still marked on Hanover Midtown trees as of yesterday evening. Broadstone Terrace seems to be coming along, while no movement seems to have occurred yet for Juniper & 5th.

Recap was updated:

Quote:
1372 Peachtree St

ASD | SKY presented plans for core and shell improvements to the existing vacant office building at 1372 Peachtree Street. Most notably, the proposed scope includes demolition of the Peachtree Street façade and construction of a new full height curtain wall façade that features a new exterior stair. A new semi-enclosed courtyard and landscape area will also be created along the Peachtree frontage. The committee complimented plans for increased transparency on the Peachtree façade and for taking the opportunity to create nice public space. The DRC suggested that the applicant fine tune designs of the exterior fire stair and the outdoor seating area. The applicant will share these details as well as adjustments to the courtyard at a follow-up presentation.

195 13th Street

This was the second presentation of a proposed 27-story multifamily project on 13th Street by Lennar Multifamily Communities. The proposal includes 307 rental units with lobby, lounge, leasing and mailroom space on the ground floor. Per the committee’s request, the applicant shared proposed material selections and more detailed elevations of the 13th Street façade. The committee asked that designs be further developed for the 7-level above-grade parking deck, adding more detail and dimension to the façade. Prior to formal approval by the DRC, the applicant has been asked to submit these changes as well as a landscaping plan in a final comprehensive package.

SLS Atlanta Hotel Residences

Trillist returned for a follow-up presentation of a new luxury hotel project under the SLS flag. Located at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and 13th Street, the proposed 43-story tower would contain 214 hotel rooms, 66 condo units, and 12 levels of podium parking. At the first presentation in July, the DRC commended the development team for the collaborative approach in working with adjacent property owners to create a central service area that would reduce the need for curb cuts. The committee also suggested the need to simplify the creative programming planned along the pedestrian realm. Since July, the applicant has eliminated extraneous elements at the ground level and created a cleaner architectural expression and an engaging pedestrian experience. The committee and applicant agreed on other minor adjustments to the façade design and the committee will recommend formal support for this project on the condition that the applicant follow up with revised elevations.

Comcast

A new switching station is proposed in the middle of the site owned by Comcast. The intent is to construct in two phases a single-story, concrete masonry enclosure, flat-roof building consisting of approximately 6,500 SF to house an electronic signal processing system. The plan will include six emergency generators and ten separate HVAC package units. The committee stated appreciation for the applicant’s efforts to make the new building and ancillary devices as subdued as possible and will continue to work with the applicant towards this effort. While the applicant has ensured the committee that the utility uses will be completely screened from West Peachtree, the DRC has requested that the applicant show design plans with similar attention to Spring Street.
Also the 12th street apartment project filed for permits
