Generally it seems Novare average about 12 ft per floor, as a median of the other projects. 432 ft is that median. I doubt it will hit 500 but it'll be good infill none the less.

I think the parking lot you can see in the photos I took two weeks ago, which is bounded by 6th, Peachtree, Juniper, and 805 Peachtree/5th St, is owned by Marriott and nothing is planned there for now. That is to the south of the Triology development, south of 6th St. There is a parking lot on the north side, however, north of 7th St, where I believe a new hotel/residence development was announced recently, but you can't really see it in these pictures.

Does anyone have different info on the south parking lot that essentially serves 805 Peachtree?

Grading, and getting ready to lay some pipes which probably have a more technical name than just "pipes." The retaining wall between the Starbucks parking lot and the site has come down, as has the halfway house that flanked the Neil Reid building.

Novare's typical cookie cutter shit.

cabasse Jun 20, 2006 1:03 AM

cookie cutter at least... i don't mind it that much, it's infill. (and when it's called for, they do up the ante - eg the atlantic)

But what makes this project so great is the way the building interacts with the street. The street level retail is what is going to set this building apart from their other projects.

Question... there are two pictures for this project... the phase I picture (with one building) is being built now, right? Will the other two buildings be the ones from the phase II picture or will they be more in the style of phase I? I seem to remember someone mentioning that they might all be in that Spire-minus-the-spire phase-I style (I hope not. :yuck:).

mayhem Jun 20, 2006 5:37 PM

I think all three of them will look like the one under construction now. Phase II is meant to be the same heigh as I

Exactly! IMO this project, 1010 Peachtree and the Park Pavilion will be BIG steps in the right direction for Atlanta in terms of street level treatment.

mayhem Jun 20, 2006 5:44 PM

Don't forget Allen Plaza :) There will be lots of retail, some two stories as well.

It sure looks like a nice tower.

On the Atlanta forum it was mentioned that the height is 501 feet, would that be just to the height of the main roof or the height including the spires?

I would venture the measurement is to the top of the spires.

CHAPINM1 Jul 12, 2006 10:57 PM

Makes sense, looks also like the height of the main roof is about 450 feet, maybe a little more.

BVC Jul 12, 2006 11:18 PM

Irregardless of roof height or spire height, this will stand up nicely in that area of town.

CHAPINM1 Jul 13, 2006 12:47 AM

This should get put on the Atlanta city page on this website as well as the height updated on Emporis.

Surely, They'll have to keep that.

Is it actually protected though?

He of course has nicer buildings (like the Reed House) but still, it's a nice little example of his work and a good example of midtown apartments from the period.

Are they apts. or condos? Seems like they'd almost have to be converted to luxury historic condos to keep up with the market.

Does anyone know what the actual units are like?

He also did that 8-9 story apartment building on the peachtree corner on the street that runs on the north side of the Biltmore (7th?). Someone should fix that one up into a nice boutique hotel.
