30-Story Condo Announced for ATL Perimeter

Cousins putting condos at 'King' and 'Queen' towers

By WALTER WOODS
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 07/28/05

Cousins Properties is putting condos, hundreds of them, on the Perimeter.

The Cobb County developer has filed plans with Fulton County to build as many as 650 condominium units in a 30-story tower at the Concourse office park on Georgia 400 and I-285.

The 64-acre office park on the Fulton-DeKalb county line is famous for the 30-story 'King' and 'Queen' office towers.

Cousins, the retail and office developer that built metro Atlanta's tallest building, Bank of America Plaza downtown, said last year it was getting into the condo business.

It has a small condo project underway near Piedmont Park and a 50-story project in downtown Miami.

Cousins has filed a request with Fulton County to rezone an 11 acre corner of Concourse at Hammond Drive and Peachtree Dunwoody Road to allow for residential development.

The condo project would also include 70,000 square feet of retail, including restaurant space and 1,800 parking spaces.

Perimeter Center is becoming a very popular place to build 20 to 30 story condos. Are there any renderings of this proposed building?

Good location. ohoooo......Sandy Springs address whipee!

It is going to need to make a statement from an architectual standpoint.

I have always thought the King and Queen were cool. Imagine if they had been maybe 10 or 15 stories taller.

It is too bad there will not be an east-west MARTA line nearby given the density that this area is beginning to show.

Good! There are already 2, 20-30 floor condos up that way and another 27 floor one under construction now. That area is showing some promise.

The Perimeter Center area is a very large area. It starts east of Ashford-Dunwoody (e.g., the Philips North America Headquarters) stretches to Mount Vernon Road which is at least two miles north, goes a good two miles to an area about half a mile west of Georgia 400 (e.g., UPS's Headquarters) and then goes south of I-285 to include St. Josephs Hospital, Northside Hospital and another that I can't think of now. All in all, it's a very spread out area with pretty lousy access between the four quadrants formed by Georgia 400 and I-285.

With over 20 million feet of office space and a number of hospitals, it does seem to make some sense to have workers living close by in condo highrises. But, then again the area is fairly well served by three Marta stations: Medical Center, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs.

Nick, it is true that those are great MARTA stations and they are very busy stations, but they could handle much more. The MARTA line should extend to North Fulton. To meet the transit needs of the other 75% of commuters in the area an east-west line should be built. to the west it could go all the way to town center and to the east ..........Jimmy Carter Bvld?

For reasons of flexibility lightrail trainsets and tracks at grade in some areas would be more functional.
