ATLANTA | Trump Towers
 
http://andreabennett.com/public/various/trump.jpg

Two towers with the tallest to be 48 stories and the second to be 30+ (Emporis has it listed as 38.)

The sales office is set to open at the EOY with construction set for early 2007 (on the 48 story tower.)

The location is in Midtown Atlanta at 15th and West Peachtree.

I'd be willing to bet the tallest tower will be in the 600 foot range.

ATLmangum Aug 8, 2006 5:14 PM

I'd say about 620 for the first and about 470 for the second.

CHAPINM1 Aug 8, 2006 5:37 PM

I think Trump will definetly want the building/or buildings to stand out and surpass most of the current buildings in Midtown (GLG Grand Four seasons, 1180 Peachtree, Promenade 2, ect)...

The glass is definitely not gold. The rendering is done at sunset.

Dale Aug 15, 2006 5:15 PM

But even if the glass were gold, surely Atlanta could sustain one gold tower. The problem with Vegas is the compulsion to build just one more gold tower.

You know, it is really a shame that this tower is not one. I'm not going to get into the whole supertall but this tower at 80 plus stories would be simply majestic in Atlanta's already beautiful skyline.

ATLmangum Aug 15, 2006 8:23 PM

Knowing Trump, he released this rendering just to wet our appetite. Remeber how Terminus said that at street level the rendering didn't even meet zoning specs. From the looks of it this is just a "conceptual" drawing. I'll bet you a pair of Trump cuff-links that the final rendering will be one huge tower. That said I prefer the two towers over one big one.

The buildings are nice enough and will be OK in the skyline but it seems to me that these would fit either better along a waterfront (I'm thinking Baltimore or something like that) or in Vegas. It does sort of have that casino look to it.

macdaddy Aug 15, 2006 9:07 PM

Call me the eternal optimist, but how cool would it be if they sell out so fast, that both towers have to go much higher to accomodate the buying volume. I'd still have the southeast tower be several floors higher than the shorter one, though. They relate to each other much more interestingly that way.

StreetCandy Aug 15, 2006 9:12 PM

anyone know what currently sits on this block and if it's on the east or west side of w. peachtree?

macdaddy Aug 15, 2006 9:36 PM

It's west of West Peachtree, between it and Spring Street. It's an empty lot now. Not sure, but it might be used for parking.
