It will occupy the vacant area at Peachtree and 6th. They just probably won't build it until last - once exterior tower work is mostly done. Twelve CP has a similar low-rise component on Ivan Allen, and it's just being built now.

This is by far the best rendering I have seen for this project.

JoLeMaMa...there's a link to a construction webcam on page 2 where you can look in real time at this beast whenever you'd like!

O.K. Thanks

I look at the progression of this building, and it seems to be going up really slow. Is this the case?

No, that's not the case. They are at the construction stage where they are erecting the much more complex, and larger, lower levels of the tower. Once they proceed to the more narrow floor plate of the residential levels it will begin to rise at a faster floor by floor pace. The majority of high rise construction projects proceed at a MUCH slower pace on the initial lower floors, and this one is no different.

They're about to start pouring the 10th floor where the tower will begin to rise. Also, Steve, there are residential units on the lower levels as well.

From the webcam, it looks like they are starting to work on the last floor of the parking levels. We should start to see the rest of the residential portion begin to rise in a couple of weeks.

The end of March. It will be in one of Spire's retail units.

Those are the best photos of Viewpoint posted yet, GThomas. You really captured the scope and scale of the project. The view from the north along Peachtree gives a broad hint of what the two-story retail is going to look like at street level. I really like it.

I really actually like the little Starbucks next to what will be a pretty large building....once the Hines building fills in across the street it will be a neat corner nestled between two big developments. Normally I think that's awful (like Spire's big plaza), but for some reason I like this.

Are they doing anything with the back of Viewpoint? The parking deck is really a dog, and they'll have that big empty area behind it.

Isn't phase 3 going behind there?

The Viewpoint under construction appears quite different from the model on Novare.

If I'm counting floors correctly, it looks like they are now framing the final full footprint floor. After this, the slender portion will begin to rise.
