In March, the city’s Department of City Planning began working with Noble to hone the design to respect the historic intersection. It resulted in a new façade design for the hotel, based on recommendations from the Midtown Alliance.

“It is critically important that Atlanta expect more from its designers and more of its buildings,” City Planning Commissioner Tim Keane said in a media release.

“Zoning can only take you so far,” he added. “Regulations don’t make great buildings, only design can do that. We intend to work in a productive way with developers like we did with Noble to improve the architecture in all of Atlanta.”

That's an interesting take from someone who created a burner account just to post that shot. You are who you aSPIRE to be.

8th at West

https://www.midtownatl.com/about/new.../june-drc-2018

Designed by Pickard Chilton and HKS, the project infills an 0.8 acre site with excellent accessibility to Tech Square to the south and a 3 minute walk to the Midtown MARTA Station on the north. The base of the building integrates seamlessly into the surrounding urban fabric and activates the corners with 6,000 square feet of leasable space. The architecture at the street level combines glass, wood and steel elements to create an inviting human-scale environment that reveals the hive of activity that will animate the lobby lounge. The tower is a series of modulated surfaces, thoughtfully detailed and culminating in a series of rooftop balconies with striking views of the skyline.

Overall, the Midtown Development Review committee voiced enthusiastic support for the project, noting the high level of refinement and detail in the submittal package, including an architectural model used to illustrate the lower floors. There were questions about vehicular egress on 7th Street, the possibility for additional on-street parking, and façade treatment and pedestrian egress from the parking structure. The development team will address these questions and provide additional information about streetscape details in a follow-up submittal.

Wow, that looks like an exceptional street level for an office tower. Most of the time, it's just a huge glass curtain that isn't very inviting to your average pedestrian, but that looks inviting for someone like me who isn't working in the offices of the tower itself. Sounds like they gave high remarks for the project.

At the DRC meeting, they said that if everything goes smoothly in the permitting process, it will be under construction by the end of the year.

The Cousin's tower looks great. Looks to be at least 500 feet?

Apparently AIG is going to be the lead tenet for this project. AIG's is currently located in one of Cousin's Perimeter office and their lease is up next year.

this would be huge. Developers, keeping bringing the jobs and residences to midtown, this is where people want to live and work.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It's going to be dense with residential, retail and now jobs if 1105 moves forward as planned.
