A three tower development at the Atlanta Symphony site has been announced.

Masterpiece set for ‘symphony center’ site -- 3 skyscrapers

A Manhattan developer wants to build one of Atlanta’s tallest skyscrapers.

A team that includes New York-based Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. and international design firm Arquitectonica is planning a nearly 2 million-square-foot development for Midtown’s long-vacant “symphony center” site at 98 14th Street.

The 4.5-acre site sandwiched between the 50-story One Atlantic Center and the 41-story 1180 Peachtree tower could be under contract, according to real estate sources.

Developers are pitching three towers for the property — one that would soar to 56 stories, including 34 floors of residential and 22 floors

This is called the Symphony site because at one time, a massively expensive Calatrava symphony hall was slated to be built there:

The Calatrava that wasn't: The Atlanta Symphony Center

http://www.miestai.net/forumas/showt...54046&langid=1

In 2005 an extraordinary flush of exhuberance surrounded this splashy starchitect design for the ASO's new digs at 14th and Peachtree Sts. Sadly, a combination of weak fundraising, state and local government funding that never appeared, and Calatrava's notoriety for cost overruns sealed this Midtown gem's fate.

Nearly an exact replica of the Calatrava building is being built at the WTC site in NYC

No doubt about it, that's Calatravian.



The Milwaukee Art Museum, a home-state favorite of mine.

As for Atlanta, I'm glad to see some development. For a city of commerce, it seems to have been a bit stagnant in the development of skyscrapers.

Is Midtown Slated For A Three-Tower Mega-Project?



Quote:
News of potential high-rises sprouting in Midtown just won't quit. A Manhattan company that's long had its eye on Atlanta wants to build a nearly 2 million-square-foot development — to include a skyline-altering 56-story tower — on 14th Street at the long-vacant "symphony center" site, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports. Wedged between the 50-story One Atlantic Center and Atlanta's Prettiest Oversized Napkin Holder (1180 Peachtree tower), the 4.5-acre site was once slated for a Santiago Calatrava-designed Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert hall, until the Recession killed those plans. Should it happen, the project (a team effort by New York-based Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. and international design firm Arquitectonica) would be a game-changer; in addition to a signature tower that could rival Midtown's Bank of America Plaza, Atlanta's tallest building, the project would include two more towers at 46 stories each.

The newspaper reports both 46-story towers would be residential. As for the 56-story Big Kahuna, 34 floors of that would be residential, with the rest occupied by a hotel. Overall, the project could inject Midtown with 95,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, 1,350 apartments (not condos) and 270 hotel rooms. Initial plans do not include renderings.


I'd really be surprised if the 56 story tower will be tall enough to "rival the Bank of America Tower" but it's fun to dream.

I don't see that happen either, or it should have a similar size crown and spire.

A 56 story tower that is residential and hotel only would be a little over half the size of the Bank of America building.

I'd guess 700-750 ft, maybe 800 ft with a big spire or crown. In terms of sheer scale, this development will definitely make its mark but they'd have to add some floors to reach those lofty BOA levels.

Just let it be good looking. this architect tends to be able to hit homeruns and with Atlanta they don't have a building on every block.

Plans Would Bring 60-, 57- and 39-Story Towers to Midtown



Quote:
Three new skyscrapers — including what could be Atlanta's tallest building — are one step closer to becoming a reality. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports New York developers filed plans Wednesday for the ginormous mixed-use project proposed for 98 14th St., Midtown's so-called "symphony center" site. At around 1,000 feet, the 55-story Bank of America Plaza is currently the city's tallest building (and the tallest in the U.S. outside of Chicago and New York). But the ABC reports this mega-development could have not one but two towers eclipse that mark, at least in terms of total floors, which isn't always indicative of true height. One building would rise 60 stories, another 57, and the runt would be 39 stories.

All told, the 4.5-acre site would be home to "90,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, 1,300 apartments, 340 hotel rooms and about 1,500 parking spaces." According to a separate report from the AJC, the tallest tower would hold all the hotel rooms and about 300 apartments, while the 57-floor behemoth would have 500 residences and retail space. The smallest tower would also hold 500 residences that could — like those in the other buildings — eventually be converted to condos, pending a market shift. An attorney told the AJC the project would be built in phases through 2020.
Still not convinced about any of these eclipsing the BOA but happily along for the ride...

Rendering: Midtown Towers To Be Slender, Twisty, Sexy



Quote:
A fresh rendering for a huge project proposed by New York developers suggests its three towers would lend architectural variety to 14th Street while beefing up the Midtown skyline. The 4.5-acre 'symphony center' site in question is bookended by the futuristic napkin holder that is 1180 Peachtree and the gothic, 50-story One Atlantic Center. A Manhattan development team wants to build a trifecta of mixed-use buildings — rising 60, 57 and roughly 39 stories — with some 1,300 apartments, 340 hotels rooms and 90,000 feet of shops and restaurants. The project's tentative design suggests the towers would be rather subdued until the upper stories, where the floors would pirouette up to slender, flat rooftops

So the developer's claims about any of these being a "tallest" turned out to be (shock!) overblown, but 98 14th St. is quite good in the context of filling in gaps in ATL's Midtown skyline.

The largest high-rise residential project planned in Atlanta has the green light to go forward.

City planners on April 29 approved a proposal for a $650 million trio of twisting towers at 98 14th St., the former “symphony center” site.

The approval paves the way for OHM Atlanta LLC, a New York-based development group that includes Olympia Heights Management LLC and Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp., to acquire the roughly 4-acre site. In an April 30 email, project attorney Kathryn Zickert of Smith, Gambrell & Russell LLP said the deal on the land would close on May 1.

Sweet! As an Atlanta native (and someone who lives downtown) I'm really excited to see some new towers going up after such a long skyscraper drought.

Midtown Mega-Project Moves Forward, Called 'Doable'



Quote:
A team of New York developers is aggressively trying to get a $650 million Midtown mega-project known as "98 14th Street" off the ground. Last month, the group bought the four-acre, former "symphony center" site for a reported $22 million, and they've been actively seeking development partners with ties to the Atlanta market, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports, behind a paywall. Wood Partners LLC could want a piece of the action; if that name sounds familiars, it's probably because Wood Partners plans to build a 19-story, mixed-use tower on a parking lot next to the Midtown MARTA station. The 98 14th Street group includes Arquitectonica, the architects behind Philips Arena, but one real-estate observer wondered aloud if the rest of the team is a little green when it comes to the volatility of Atlanta's boom-bust market, the newspaper reports. The group has also been in talks with owners of office towers and land adjacent to 98 14th Street. Maybe the new guys are taping the old guard for advice?

Midtown Alliance president and CEO Kevin Green told the newspaper that developers have a green-light to begin site work. The three-tower project's completion is tentatively set for the year 2020. All told, plans call for 1,300 residential units, 90,000 square feet of shops and restaurants and 340 hotel rooms — which Green called a "substantial" but "doable" undertaking for Midtown.

Otherwise, recent talks with city leaders have centered on greater connectivity, both within the project and to its Midtown neighbors. The tallest 98 14th St. tower would climb to 720 feet, making it three feet shorter than the cylindrical Westin Peachtree Plaza and the sixth tallest structure in Atlanta.

6th tallest, but it will add a lot of volume to the skyline.
