Pictures would be appreciated.
Thanks, folks
The only update is they painted the remaining wall at 8th and W.Peachtree with a huge "901" logo. The buildings are demolished but the site is not ready for work - for example there are still some foundations from the old buildings and trees on site.

So is this tower project going to be on Peachtree st or west Peachtree st & Ivan Allen Blvd? I’m thinking it’s going on the lot right next to where TI used to have a restaurant on Ivan Allen and the next block is that empty lot? Also the next big lot West of that is supposed to be a Huge proposal there as well. Across from the W downtown.

I think it'll have a Peachtree address because it's on the church's property, but it will physically be on the southeast corner of West Peachtree and Ivan Allen, plus part of the block south across Porter Place from that.

RIP to Joe's and Einstein's, but this is huge. These towers should make a big impact on the skyline from Piedmont Park.

Shutze was the architect for the 1928 funeral home. The architects for the new towers are HKS Inc and Cooper Carry.

Isn't the applicant supposed to release a site plan, elevations and renderings a week before the meeting to get on the agenda? How does the public see that before the meeting? I live right there and have a vested interest in this.

Tbh, unless the architecture is on point, I'd rather what's there stay put for now. They at least provide some interesting contrast to what's likely to be another boring, block-sized, hulking glass box with cars looming six stories over the street and useless little retail cube spaces that never fill up.

You can request to join at the noted link.

Applicants are not required to post site plans online. The City of Atlanta has the official public record and you can request it from the Zoning Administrator if it has been filed. If not, it is not public record and the City cannot legally release it.

I normally support development like this but mostly when it is taking over a parking lot. I'm not very thrilled about this as I think it takes away from the neighborhood/character of this part of midtown. Restaurants in old homes with massive patios under established trees is a lot more appealing than a massive glass building with a slight possibility of occupied retail space.
I'd rather see both restaurants either go under new management to improve service/food and a third restaurant take over the blue house in the middle and turn the valet service up front into another large patio. Does this create more density, no, but it creates a vibrant block attracting people so much more than another apartment tower.

I couldn't agree more.

Oh Einsteins. I worked there one of my last years in Atlanta. Boy was that a fun place to work for a young gay kid.

ATL Native, appreciate your point of view. But, since the restaurant group has decided to sell the parcels to a developer, either they feel their run of those concepts has come to an end or they feel they can resurrect them in other locations somewhere down the line. I think a big part of those concepts, however, is the very fact they are housed in former large residences with lots of outdoor space. I have enjoyed the businesses on that block over the years, and looks like I'll miss my chance to have a last meal as my next visit isn't until July 4 Weekend. I'm of the opinion that if this leads to another thousand residents living in that same space, it makes for a more vibrant Midtown if those folks get out on foot and become patrons of neighborhood businesses (both current and future) on a regular basis.
