Does anyone know if - and what time - the official groundbreaking for ANTHEM is on tomorrow, Wed Feb 21 ?

In October it was reported to be a 21 story project. More recently, word was it could be 30+ stories. Anyone know the final scope?

Thank you.

That was a pre-recession proposal that thankfully fell through. I just wonder how many people lost their deposits...

A lot of people in Tampa got burned badly when his crappy proposal there also collapsed.

I had an early meeting today with a software company at 1350 Spring Street (Nan restaurant building) across from the proposed Metlife Metropolitan Center. The CEO of the company I met with whom has 350 employees there today and plans to expand to 500 in the next year. However, he said the building's owner is planning to raze the building in the next year. Therefore they are looking now for new office space. Hmmmmm.....

Does anyone know what they are doing to 1280 West Peachtree? Are they completely repainting it? It looks much nicer than I remember it.

1105 West Peachtree - I noticed there is a sign for tree removal. Has that always been there?

sure - they're mostly external photos of it in its current state though.

Most drivers will never be aware it exists, and once you get any distance north on W Peachtree it's obscured from pedestrians by trees. And it's sitting behind the power line--ew.

Big letdown of a building imo, but bring on the Whole Foods and the whole discussion will be moot!
I agree that this building is a letdown. The artwork looks amateurish. And buildings that require lighting tricks often suffer from neglect. The bulbs burn out and are not replaced. Both the Downtown W and Twelve building come to mind.

LED lighting can last 10+ years and is much less susceptible to failure-- so in this respect building lighting reliability has improved dramatically. Nighttime lighting can significantly improve the vitality of buildings and the urban environment--
As far as the building goes, cuts in the amount of glass and a lot more blank wall do make it an architectural disappointment.

A flamboyant groundbreaking was held late last year, but it’s not clear when vertical construction will begin, as crews are said to have encountered significant granite beneath street level.
Are they trying to make it sound like they encountered unexpected granite? - this was well-known before the Symphony Center project was being proposed here. The lack of pre-sales (evident in the reduced size of the floorplans to lower individual unit costs) plays a bigger image in the delay than subterranean rock they should have encountered during boring tests.

Yeah if people are surprised by granite here it makes me wonder how well they know the area. This has been known since well before Europeans came into the scene.

But that is sort of a throwaway line and it's lol local journalism so maybe it's not that big of a deal.

This was just updated on Loopnet this month. Remember, this is backed by Metlife and Daniels Corps so they have seep pockets. Additionally Metlife acquired an additional 8 acres in Midtown last year.
Was lucky to get a glimpse of it today.. Metropolitan Center, the Metlife properties, and the Arts Center TOD (plus a few other nearby parcels) are part of an assemblage being pitched to Amazon. It may be more "vision" than reality, but the massings I saw suggest the plans have changed.

Can't really share anything more because I'm in the dark as well.. If that changes, I'll post an update.

Norfolk Southern Building

A few more details...

Quote:
In addition to 246 loft-style apartments, CIM will add 50,000 square feet of commercial space, says a letter from Wilson Brock & Irby LLC, the attorney representing CIM.

CIM plans to obtain financing from the tax allocation district (TAD) for the project. It would use the financing “to advance the city’s affordable housing goals,” says the letter.

The rehab would maintain “the character and details” of the current buildings. That includes keeping the ornate copper canopies at its entrances. New windows would be installed on the façade and the loading platforms along Ted Turner would be enhanced.

CIM also plans to encourage more walking and biking in the area, which lies on the edge of The Gulch, a historic piece of Atlanta where 19th century railroads formed a vital transportation hub for the Southeast.

CIM aims to widen the sidewalks along Ted Turner Drive, formerly known as Spring Street. It also plans to add pedestrian access on the ground floor and viaduct level of the adaptive-reuse project.

It’s also calling for the Nelson Street bridge to be reopened to create direct pedestrian and bicycle connection to the Castleberry Hill neighborhood.

I've seen better artwork from kindergarteners.

In Houston though.

You wouldn't happen to work for Cooper Carry? Approximately 3 months ago I posted a Vimeo video from Cooper Carry that looked like it was potentially a visionary proposal for the 17th and West Peachtree site. They have since taken it down. I didn't take a screenshot, but I remember it looking like Charlotte's Tyron Place proposal.
