From the Business Chronicle article, Marta will vote to award the project to a developer on June 11. Marta did not say whether or not there are other proposals still under consideration.

Edit: Marta has now confirmed that they will be voting to award the development to Portman.

North Ave proposal

Christ, I'll say it again that this is a stunning building. Would be the best looking building in the city if built as proposed, in my opinion. Since this is Atlanta, of course I fear that what actually gets built will looking nothing like this but I can dream.

I am sure it will be watered down.

Design is nice and all, but honestly imo height density and also height trump that for this area in particular. The North Ave area NEEDS this for balancing.

Also it looks like they're well underway with columns at 14th and Spring. Has anyone been close enough to I see if they've installed a tower crane base?

Oh wow yeah that looks weird.

That entire portion of the site is weird to me. There was no below ground foundational work just the columns and the core in the middle. This is where the residential tower will be built right?

Construction material and equipment from the Margaritaville tower site are being taken by protesters to build a barricade against the police.

I'm sure you'll find many people upset. It seemed that people really loved this project when it was first proposed.

Extremely minor damage-- Shouldn't make much difference--

Is this the crane you all are referencing? Looks like the existing residential tower crane might be limited on its reach range because of the existing buildings so they are adding a 4th one for coverage?

This portion of the site doesn't seem weird. Looks like there will be a service level that connects all the buildings that's mostly below grade - which is what you're seeing constructed right now. Most of the residential parking is above grade otherwise. The new Arts Center Way extension will run on top of what looks to be the service/parking level below grade closer to the north side of the site.

The North Avenue proposal looks a bit like the Vista Tower in Chicago. Great design, and a big improvement to the current look of that side of the North Avenue station. Wonder if the enhancements to the station will also involve the AT&T side.

Also, was walking the dog yesterday and saw crews completing site surveys on the parking lot behind the Civic Center on Pine Street.

A big concrete pour for the basement of the Midtown Union Office Tower today. Looks like the core may be above ground within the next couple weeks.
