  1. A recent picture of the rapidly changing Midtown skyline....
  2. A view from the penthouse level of Viewpoint shows the construction progress of Post Midtown and Apogee (22 14th Street). The recently completed Atlantic House is also shown in this picture. Even at 32 stories, Atlantic House looks so short. Either way, I can't complain about the growing density of Midtown.
  3. Yes, that is Metropolis to the far left. Above is a rendering of the Peachtree portion of the base of the tower. Below is a picture of the tower portion.
  4. Construction of Hanover Midtown is imminent.
  5. Anthem to invest $20 million in 2000-job IT Hub Anthem is locating a 2000-job IT hub in Midtown's Bank of America Plaza. This goes to further cement Midtown's status a serious technology center. This is just the shot that Midtown needed. Source: Anthem to bring 2000 jobs to Midtown.
  6. Core drilling on the Ascent Midtown (24 stories) and Canopy by Hilton (12 stories) lot. Photo courtesy of Ant131531
  7. Land Development Permit was filed for 120 Piedmont today. See Martinman's post four post above for more information on this project.
  8. Land development permit filed for The Sutton The Sutton will be located just south of the Shops Buckhead Atlanta on Peachtree Road. .
  9. The nearly completed Atlantic House...... One Atlantic Center stands tall above the Atlantic House. To the left, the crane of the 39-story Apogee Midtown apartment tower. The garage of the Atlantic House has turned out better than I had expected. The limestone cladding adds a touch of class to this Novare offering. Once the retail is fully leased, it will definitely add to the pedestrian experience. Thanks to Ant131531
  10. GSU plans $35 Mill Infectious Disease Research Center Georgia State University is planning to construct a disease research center in downtown Atlanta. This will be the first of its kind in the southeast. Having a research center in the biomedical industry in the heart of downtown is pretty interesting. I wonder how this center will differ from the Center of Disease Control in the Emory area of Atlanta. Either way, having a greater biomedical presence in Atlanta can only be a win win for the region. Georgia State University is to Downtown what GA Tech is to Midtown. Hopefully the new additions will add to Atlanta's growing influence as a world knowledge center. GSU proposed research center.
  11. The Mercedes Benz Stadium is larger than I was expecting. I'm pleased with the look so far. Once complete, it will be just as attractive as the renderings. When the GA Dome is razed and replaced with the park space, it will make a great tie in between the new stadium and the Georgia World Congress Center. The proposed 800-1000 room hotel that will rise just to the north of the MB Stadium will have really nice easterly views from the upper floors.
  12. Construction update.... There are nine (9) more floors to go for Modera Midtown and the NCR HQ tower starts to rise. https://www.instagram.com/p/BLMUKAHDVzq/
  13. While Atlanta may not be on national media's radar, it definitely is on the radar of major employers.... Anthem eyes Midtown for technology center, will create more than 1000 jobs. The Indianapolis based Fortune 50 health insurance firm is eyeing at least three floors in the Bank of America tower to create a technology center. This announcement cone on the heels of a string of technology oriented announcements for the Midtown submarket. With this announcement, recent job announcements for the City of Atlanta will have to be expressed in several thousands as opposed to 100s. I haven't added them up but off my head I can think of at least 8000 jobs announced for Midtown recently. Some of these jobs are transfers from the suburbs to the city. This, of course, will only further cement the necessity for the plethora of residential towers that are either recently completed, under construction or proposed. http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/news/2016/10/03/anthem-eyes-midtown-for-technology-center.html
  14. Martiman thank you so much for the development compilation. It clearly shows how much development has taken place in Midtown in just a few years. Now for a construction site update.... In the foreground, NCR Corp's World HQ. To the left of University House is Modera Midtown. Just in front of One Atlantic Center is the recently topped out Atlantic House. The crane in front of Atlantic House is for Post Midtown.
  15. Yet another proposal for Downtown. The proposal is currently called International Plaza and will be a mixed use tower of retail, office and hotel. It is proposed to be 25 stories. There will be a rooftop lounge. This will make for a very interesting view. The location is at 202 Courtland Street NE. It looks as if Downtown is finally starting to get some of the amazing development that has been present in Midtown, Buckhead and Perimeter Center. http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/19919277/202-Courtland-St-NE-Atlanta-GA/?linkcode=31060
  16. Yes, yes, yes! You are right Unifour. My apologies. Modera Buckhead is about to break ground a few blocks south of this development. There is just so much going on. It can be a challenge keeping all the names right from 700 miles away. *smiles* Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I made the correction on the original post.
  17. Yet ANOTHER Innovation Lab comes to Tech Square! A Brussels-based biotech company will open an innovation center at Georgia Tech. UCB develops drugs to treat severe diseases of the immune and central nervous systems. There is no word yet on how many jobs this innovation center will create. It is definitely a very nice addition to the plethora of innovation centers that have clustered at or near Georgia Tech's Tech Square. This yet another example of how valuable having a world class research and technology institution in your own backyard can be very beneficial. I guess it's also helpful that there are direct flights between Atlanta and Brussels.

  18. Thank you for the pictures. I love this picture of Old Town. It has to be one of my...if not my most...favorite places in all of the Washington metro. The King Street Metro Station is very visible in this photo. I also like the fact that this picture also scans across the Potomac. You can even see National Harbor, the Wilson Bridge (I-495) and the big tent of the visiting Cirque Du Soleil over in Maryland.
  19. Hanover Buckhead rising above the Buckhead Village...with the Buckhead Business District in the background. Thanks to Ant135131 for this photo.
  20. Thanks to Ant131531 for taking this picture (from Sept 4) of the construction sites of the NCR World HQ and Modera Midtown.
  21. The Midtown skyline from Piedmont Park..... Photo courtesy of Sam Kirsch
  22. Hanover Midtown's foundation and parking deck permit was issued today. Yet another parking lot bite the dust.
  23. The developers of the SLS Hotel and Residences had a followup meeting with the Midtown DRC. The recap is as follows: Trillist returned for a follow-up presentation of a new luxury hotel project under the SLS flag. Located at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and 13th Street, the proposed 43-story tower would contain 214 hotel rooms, 66 condo units, and 12 levels of podium parking. At the first presentation in July, the DRC commended the development team for the collaborative approach in working with adjacent property owners to create a central service area that would reduce the need for curb cuts. The committee also suggested the need to simplify the creative programming planned along the pedestrian realm. Since July, the applicant has eliminated extraneous elements at the ground level and created a cleaner architectural expression and an engaging pedestrian experience. The committee and applicant agreed on other minor adjustments to the façade design and the committee will recommend formal support for this project on the condition that the applicant follow up with revised elevations.
  24. Uuuuggggghhhhh! THAT will be next door to the glamorous Four Seasons Atlanta Hotel? This will also be across the street from what is proposed to be Atlanta's new second tallest? The positive is that it's sandwiched in between two taller buildings AND it will remove yet another parking lot.
  25. This is good news for all of the apartment and condo towers either newly completed, under construction or proposed... Honeywell to bring 800-job IT hub to Atlanta Joining an array of IT-hubs coming to Midtown Atlanta (i.e., GE, NCR, Keysight Technologies, etc.), Honeywell is bring a 600-job IT hub to Atlanta. Midtown's Bank of America tower is reported to be the front runner to land the IT hub. This building is located next to MARTA's North Avenue Station. This is testament to Midtown's growing prominents as an IT hub. The IT center will develop software and technologies for Honeywell's aerospace, automation and control solutions businesses. Quietly but assuredly the jobs continue to come....
