According to the developer, lilli Midtown will top out in just 4 months. There's no parking deck to build and a relatively small footprint so this construction will not take long.

Hmm I thought it wouldn't top out until around July or August with the building finishing up by late 2017. That means this building may be open by July. Wow.

Just imagine if a lot of these buildings didn't have to build parking decks. At least 4 or 5 months of construction would be saved.

That's a great point, Ant. Construction would be much faster and they'd obviously save a ton of money.

Wonder if city planning will ever get its back up and try to create a zone where parking decks are not permitted?

If you're near SFH neighborhoods (as is the case with much of Atlanta) I'm sure you'd get some pushback from people who fear being inundated with onstreet parking. But it would be an interesting experiment.

Considering just how many parking decks are in the city already, buildings like this ought to be more common. Developers hammering out deals with parking deck owners that allow residents to park in their underused decks seems like a win-win-win. Less money spent by developers, more revenue for deck owners, and less wasted space in the city. I hope this tower sets that precedent.

That was exactly the strategy followed here. There was more, that, alas, could not be supported financially. The original plans called for a new green roof over the existing deck. It was fought for, vehemently, by the entire design team, developers included, but we could not defeat the number crunchers, and it was "value engineered" out. The same was true for Azure on the Park, over the low-rise portion...

By the way: the amount of parking is generally determined by the developers based on their market studies. Some zoning areas already allow very reduced parking numbers, but if the market is for two car families, two cars per unit will be designed...

Me, too. I'd say it's the best highrise going up in Atlanta right now. No added parking, interesting design, and tightly built right up on the street. And the job site respects the sidewalk.

Totally agree. Do you know if they will be using the lot behind the building for parking or will the building just have no parking at all?

Lilli is sharing parking, I believe with the garage to the east of the building.

Right. They have an agreement to use 189 spaces in the adjacent, underutilized parking deck. I also found this statement regarding the deck. A mural maybe?

The project plans also include a massive public art installation that will transform the existing 3rd Street parking deck.

I agree, although I wish the proposal for that site was more fitting for that corner (ie brick and aesthetically stimulating) than the hotel:



Man I really need to figure out how to re-size images on this site. I haven't figured it out.

This makes a lot more sense. Whoops.
