ATLANTA | Viewpoint | 501 FT / 153 M | 36 FLOORS

Well, since construction has seemed to have gotten underway, I guess we can start a sub-forum on this project to post pictures and updates. The first phase, which is under construction now will be 36 stories and will have 383 one and two bedroom units. The ground floor will have 30,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, supposedly on two levels (that is a first for Midtown, I think).

Here is the original rendering before it was changed to a three tower project:



Here is the updated rendering of the first phase (under construction now) without the other two towers:



Finally, here are some construction photos of the site being cleared and prep-work being started. These were originally posted by DeliaC on 6/5/2006 in the Atlanta Construction Forum:






I can't wait to see this one go up!!!

Slowly the gap between upper Midtown and SoNo is filling in. Soon the BOA building won't be so lonely.

Novare is my hero! Great news that this is under construction, now when will they or have they already began this beauty?



I’m coming through Atlanta in January and it simply won’t get here fast enough. Such good times in the ATL!

They are saying "expected fall groundbreaking". Since there is no need for any rezoning within AS I'd say the chances are very high that they'll meet that schedule.

That tower is going to be indeed a beauty. Can you imagine it at night with the lightning effects it will have?!

Does anyone know how much of the retail will be completed with the first phase of this project and how much will be completed with the future phases?

Does anybody know why they didn't demolish Loca Luna and McCray's? Is there just going to be one tower under construction for now?

They'll both stay until phase II. McCrays will reopen in the 2nd tower as far as I've read.

A 40 Story residential tower from Hines and a boutique hotel.

Those are great looking towers. I really like that Trilogy project.

It's right across the street from Spire on Peachtree St.......about mid way between the BOA tower and the 14th st cluster of highrises.

How is the project selling? Just curious what the chances are we see tower 2 and 3 any time soon or whether the market for these style Novare towers is cooling. Obviously people are predicating the market will cool, I'm curious if it really is.

They haven't even opened the sales office for this tower yet, but Twelve Centennial is said to be already over 50% sold with the sales office being open for just six weeks.

I remain convinced that recent intown developments have created more of a market and that the city in general and Midtown especially are among the hottest adresses in this large metro. I also think that when "destination" retail arrives on Peachtree, which Novare aims to do with this project, its a whole new ballgame.

Have any height figures been released? Tower 1 which is 36 floors appears to be at least 470 to 480 feet to the main roof and in the 530 to 540 foot range to the tip of the spires.

I dont think so, but I remember the hearing that the two floor retail will go up to mid 40 something feet, so if you want to estimate from that be my guest. something like 470' to 480' wouldn't surprise me, but I dont think will get up to 540'.
