With the complex facing/focusing so much on that new extension of 15th street, I wonder if they'll do any sort of remodeling or refacing of the other side of the street. Now when people walk out of Trump they'll be looking right across the street at a huge blank brick wall and a 10 storey parking deck. I know if they were being built today that wouldn't pass zoning muster for street facing buildings, but they weren't built as street facing.

Maybe they could do a mural on the big brick wall and some sort of architectural screening/landscaping on the parking deck. At least maybe a nice wide sidewalk on that side with some big trees.

I think the shorter tower is the 48 storey one and the taller is around 55.

Looks sweet, but Trump needs to come up with a little more creative names for his buildings or else get his ass kicked.

I counted the rendering twice... I count about 53 stories (could be 55 behing the curve) in the taller one and 48 in the smaller one. Both times.

This weeks Business Chronicle has an article on Wood Partners about them stepping into the spotlight with the Trump development and now the Stratford (Hilton) development.

It mentions that they have been contacted 100 potential buyers in this project already.

New Renderings

http://trump.com/main.htm

If you go to his website and look under "property portfolio" and then under "future developments" and click on Altanta you can see the updateded rendering of the Atlanta project. I have to say, very nice.

I'm not sure how to post a picture when the image is in a flash format though.

From the new rendering, I count 42 floors for the smaller tower and 48 floors for the larger tower, can someone confirm? Also, it appears from the rendering that the smaller tower is slightly taller than the 1280 West Condos building just behind it. Looking at the aerial of that area, I would venture to say that it's just a matter of time until the grass courtyard at the southeast corner of 15th and W. Peachtree gets developed as this will become quite a desirable area. I bet the people living in 1280 West are more excited about the effect this will have on their property values than the loss of their southern view. Very exciting news!

i think you mean 1280 west peachtree? 1180 peachtree is the "symphony tower", home to king and spalding on 14th street

^^ At the last Midtown Alliance meeting the developers said they would build both towers at the same time. Apparently there is a good bit of interest in the project.

Trump's Midtown towers to house 570 condos
Project to rise at corner of W. Peachtree, 15th streets

By WALTER WOODS
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 12/11/06

True to his nature, when Donald Trump comes to Atlanta he'll make a big entrance.

Developers partnering with The Donald filed plans Monday that call for a 47-story condo tower at West Peachtree and 15th streets, overlooking the Midtown stretch of the downtown connector.

The tower, first announced in August, would have 365 residential units with retail and restaurant space in the first floors, according to plans filed with the city.

A second planned tower at the site would be 38 stories with another 205 units, for a total of 570. The initial announcement did not have those details.

Trump said this summer that the project, to be built with local condo developer Wood Partners, would cost $300 million. Trump boasted his building would be an architectural statement like Atlanta has never seen.

Construction on the first tower is expected to begin early next year with the first phase to be completed by early 2009. The overall project is to be completed by 2012.

I really like these towers. I think it fits in very nicely with the modern trends in Atlanta architecture. The curvature of these buildings is really setting up for a very unique, modern Midtown skyline.

Very nice, one of the best Trump designs ever. I guess he had to prove himself in Atlanta's existing parade of beautiful towers.

Well maybe the Trump hasn't seen 1180 yet. And why is it gonna take him until 2012 to sell 570 homes that seems like an long time. But anyway these are the best towers he's put out since Chicago, love the modern look.
