Where will this other Ferris Wheel go?

I hope they go for a very cutting edge design, that won't look tired in 20 years, lol. Seriously I hope it is really something very different and unique. I want the "wow" factor for this place.

Another this why do they have to demolish the GA Dome? GA state could use it, what are they going to put there a parking lot???

New Hotel to be developed in Historic Downtown Building

According to a local blog, Atlanta based Diplomat plans to bring another hotel to downtown Atlanta. Diplomat , who previously redeveloped the historic Carnegie Building on Carnegie Way near Ellis Street, plans to begin extensive renovations at 87 Walton Street, near Cone Street, in the Fairlie Poplar district, not far away from their downtown Courtyard.

The building, which dates from 1910, will be transformed into metro Atlanta's first Home2 Suites by Hilton. The extended stay all suites hotel chain is a relatively new hotel brand with 23 properties around the country.

The Atlanta Home2 is participating in Atlants's Better Buildings Challenge and was one of only four buildings, and the only hotel, selected to participate. According to a source, plans call for the hotel to receive LEED Certification, integrating high efficiency ENERGY usage into the dated building.


Additionally, plans call for a total of five retail spaces, including three on the Walton Street side. The 10 story hotel is also said to be getting a rooftop bar overlooking Centennial Olympic Park.

Allen Plaza - Bought by Regent Partners

I could be wrong, but didn't Regent Partners buy the site where 50 Allen Plaza was supposed to go? I know someone did, just cannot remember if it was them. No telling when they'll develop, it took them .....what......15-20 years to develop Sovereign after buying the site? But they did a great job with it.

The Viewpoint newsletter said they're targeting 1 floor every 3 days so it should be topped out by the time I get home from Seattle.

Yes that is very fast, especially compared to the 77-12th street complex, which seemed like it took forever? Does anyone know if their were problems encountered there? The final product does look good though.

Well, when you build the same thing over and over again, you would think the process would be faster. as for the case of 77 12th st. quality takes time

Once you see it in person, it is very memorable and impressive, and will age well.

The real question is how many people IN ATLANTA, even care about that Gate. Lol

What crap. 20 years and then demolish?

It is unbelievable (yet so very believable) that a new stadium is pushed on us only 20 years later.

UPDATE Construction Video's

Construction all around town is roaring! I was able to visit Buckhead and Sandy Springs/Dunwoody and file this update:

Buckhead
92 West Paces Ferry : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqSyoSIM69Q
Construction is almost done. The brown stucco is an interesting choice, watch out for termites!

Broadstone Maple : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLP_MdmFn4I
I'm pretty sure this is the location where Alliance Residential Co is proposing up to 250 apartment units

Camden Buckhead : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66wq9jjcaLE
Crews are still site grading. They have moved a lot of dirt and it looks as thought they aren't done yet.

Buckhead Atlanta : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPk4wDno9NM
Site work on the southern tower has ramped up. Meanwhile work continues on the grand foyer/main entrance which will be rather impressive when complete. Michigan Ave style!

King + Duke Restaurant : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-pNogkgiUg
Nava Restaurant is no more. Crews are renovating the space to make way for King + Duke from Chef Ford Fry

Veterans Park Atlanta History Center : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pffLB4vtyM0
Atlanta History Center's is significantly expanding its small Veterans Park into one that will include oral history from soldiers of many conflicts (available via Smart phones and QR codes), plaques with the history of each armed forces branch and fountains.

Circle Terminus Apartments : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nqNpO0hjp0
Work on all three buildings is roaring. Foundations are being poured and the crane is about to go up. The site looks great from the 9th floor of the Terminus parking deck.

Future Loudermilk Tower Buckhead Village : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91FAWv1NezM
Renderings indicate a 6-floor mixed use tower. Has this been up long? Anyone have any info?


Sandy Springs/Dunwoody
Cox Enterprises : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdOqCBVt8P8
Cox has begun construction on a 19-floor tower. The crane is up and foundations are being poured

Hyatt Hotel at Villa Christina : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAjl21kRpco
At the western end of Perimeter Summit crews have poured the 1st of a 10-floor Hyatt Hotel. Views from the rooms should be spectacular!

The Apartments at Perimeter Town Center : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jpIIM-P2yY
6-floors of luxury apartments coming to PTC. The old buildings are gone and site grading continues..

Citizen Perimeter Apartments : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH1f7npYnBI
5-floors, 340 odd units of luxury apartments under construction. Crews have demolished all the former buildings and site grading continues.

Next up Midtown, East Atlanta and Downtown

Yes, great update as usual. Nice to see the projects a little further out that we don't get as many updates on. Perimeter is getting a lot of lesser publicized projects that could really fill the area in a bit. It will be interesting to see the approach that projects in that area take during the next boom.

I agree! I love the idea of the Gate simply for the fact that the Southern cities, being so much younger and more recently developed compared to the Northern cities, do not have as many notable monuments, especially of a classical style. With their increasing vitality and presence on the world stage, they are more than entitled to a few of their own.

In response to the commentary that the surroundings don't provide a suitable setting for such a monument or that it's a frivolous folly, consider the Washington Square Arch here in New York. When it was built (1892), New York was only just beginning to rise to prominence on the national and world stage (not unlike Atlanta since the '96 Olympics). The arch was not built in a heavily trafficked and prominent district (at the time, Greenwich Village was merely another newly built-up residential neighborhood in Lower Manhattan) and NYU was not nearly the monster institution it has become today (it only began to expand to more than one building within the village in the early 20th Century). I could even go so far as to say that the surrounding townhomes, today beloved and revered, were almost inconsequential in the late 1800s (that style of townhome was being built by the thousands throughout New York and was targeted toward the middle class that was growing in the industrialized city).

The story in Atlanta may be different, but it draws several parallels. In addition to Atlanta's present (rising) position on the world stage, Atlantic Station is basically a brand new neighborhood. Given some time it will weave itself into the urban fabric of Atlanta in a big way.

As far as major institutions or destinations, you have the planned transit village at 17th and Northside, and even if that never comes to pass, the amount of undeveloped (and underdeveloped) land in the area will become highly desirable as more transit options snake through the city. I've always felt 17th was a ripe corridor for a crosstown transit line in the future, and it's worth noting that the nearest subway station to Washington Square, West 4th Street on the A/C/E and B/D/F/M lines, didn't open until 1932, 40 years after the arch and much of the surrounding neighborhood was completed.

Going a step further, the style of condo/apartment buildings flanking the greenspace home to the Millennium Gate may seem inconsequential or unremarkable now. However, seeing as similar styled buildings are popping up all over Atlanta's urban center (not unlike the brick and stone townhomes of old New York), could these geometric, sunshaded and glass balconied buildings not become this city's style of housing stock that defines it in decades to come? You may have mixed or negative feelings about the building style now, but for your kids and grandkids, that may be the Atlanta they come to know and adore.

Just my thoughts, but yes, I appreciate the Millennium Gate and think it's an asset to Atlanta. Such seemingly unnecessary but lovely urban landmarks are what give our cities soul in addition to function.
