Hines proposes 50 story tower in an "urban village" on the Perimeter at its Northpark development.



Will the King and Queen be replaced by a taller "King"?




People in the Sandy Springs area are not too thrilled by this proposal however. I don't know if it's because of the height of the tower or the fact that the development also includes a 26 story residential tower plus other apartments. This will add 500 additional units to the apartment pipeline. If constructed, this building will surpass the King (570') and Queen (553') buildings at the nearby Concourse development as the Perimeter Center's tallest building. Luckily the proposal is across the street from the Sandy Springs MARTA Station. The proposal came up for review before the City of Sandy Springs in the middle of July. The city pushed its decision back a bit to allow for more feedback from area residents who fear traffic concerns and increased density.


It's a wait and see game but Hines seems bullish on this 50 story proposal. Stay tuned....

$140 million spec tower set to rise in Perimeter Center

Groundbreaking for 4004 Summit is scheduled for Jan. 19.


A $140 million spec tower is set to rise in the Perimeter Center along I-285. The building is being built by Atlanta developers Seven Oaks Company LLC. Groundbreaking for the building, to be known as 4004 Summit, is scheduled to occur on January 19th. While it is just a 15 story glass box, it is part of the increase in development in the large employment center known as Perimeter Center.

For those who are trying to mentally place the site, it will be on the southside of I-285 just west of the Hewlett Packard building on Lake Hearn Drive.

More information has come out about the ambitious five tower project proposed in Sandy Springs steps from the Sandy Springs MARTA Station. As is stand right now, the project, to be located at 1117 Perimeter Center West, will cost an estimated $1 Billion. 

From the article in the Reporter:

Westmoreland and Forrest said the developers will agree to make the project’s occupancy permits conditional on building a working MARTA connection. In plain English, that means that if the MARTA tunnel doesn’t work, the developers can’t rent or sell space to anyone.

The developers also committed to delaying three of the five towers until several major Ga. 400-related road improvements are completed. Those huge projects, slated for completion in 2020, include: rebuilding the Ga. 400/I-285 interchange; adding separate entrance/exit ramps on 400; turning the 400/Abernathy Road interchange into a diverging diamond; and widening the Mount Vernon Highway bridge. In the meantime, the developers would build one residential tower and one office tower.

The proposal next heads to the Sandy Springs Planning Commission in October, Westmoreland said
