Novare will be rennovating the Reed apartments. I don't know that it's protected , I think it's moreso respected.

I wonder why Novare didn't request the webcam to be put atop Spire? Isn't that Spire right across the street and wouldn't that have afforded a superior view?

:previous: Too close to the action. They wouldn't be able to fit the entire building into a shot after about 15 floors.

SteveD Aug 6, 2006 9:04 PM

aha...didn't think of that. I'm sure that's precisely the reason. Bingo.

The crane is indeed going up already. Novare is just full speed ahead.

Is that 905 Juniper to the left in the webcam view of Viewpoint?

Correct

I was just thinking, imagine what that exact view looked like in say 2000. The changes in that time period are truly amazing.

The location of Viewpoint on peachtree, will be one of the most urban areas in the south within the next few years when when current projects are completed.

1010 pt.
metropolis
spire
viewpoint 1
viewpoint 2
viewpoint 3
Hines 1
hines 2
Cousin tower 1,2, and possibly 3 just to the south.

All with good, great, or excellent streetlevel retail.

I attended a couple of the DRC meetings for this project and the top picture in post 1 was the original plan and should no longer be used as a reference.

At that time, Novare didn't own the 25% of the property at 7th/Juniper so it was only a 2 bldg project(43 & 30 stories). One of the big objections was that Juniper was being treated as an alley with both buildings fronting P'tree. (Note the long glass-covered entrance to the back bldg.

Anyway, the project will now have up to 3 bldgs. The first one being 36 stories and the next two, if built, 33 stories each. They will now face Juniper and the retail will wrap all the way around and include retail on Juniper.

The parking structures will be built in such a way that as each phase is completed, the parking deck will be connected to the previous bldgs parking deck, forming a single mega-deck with a single very-large ammenities space on the 10th floor.

The big change in the first bldg I think is that instead of the patio at the corner of 6th/P'tree, there will actually be an architectural entrance to the shopping. I think the patio was only there at the time because the front entrance of the smaller bldg facing p'tree. So it could have a P'tree address of course.

It's been a few months since the last meeting so a lot of this could have changed but the photo I'm seeing for Phase I appears to be the same one and I don't remember any objections at the last DRC.

I have also heard recently that McCray's finally agreed to sell out their lease and move in the spring so that will help Novare build the entire phase I retail component.

Seeing the columns rising above Peachtree is really starting to get me excited about this project and the impact it will have on retail along Peachtree.

seems like a great location for Atlanta's first Virgin Megastore or H&M.

Ditto!!!! I was suprise at the pace of this project. Btw, they are already clearing up the space for 1010 Peachtree, just up the street from Viewpoint.

A new rendering. Looks like the glass is no longer green.

Nice!!!

smArTaLlone Aug 26, 2006 12:15 PM

A photo taken by ATLtransplant show hows much work has been done already. I have no idea about construction but this project seems to be going up at a fast pace to me.

According to the webcam, it looks like that they are prepairing some sort of "groundbraking ceramony." I noticed a white tent being put up in the parking lot at the top left of the cam shot.

Groundbreaking.

It looks like the retail unit(s) depicted on the far right of the latest rendering isn't under construction, and can't be until some more demolition occurs on that side. I wonder if they're waiting until phase II for that part?

Yeah..I hope they aren't planning on making a "spire corner" where the building doesn't come to the edge of the street corner.
