That's a totally lame box. Atlanta warrants much better, especially for something so prominent on its skyline.

Skyline-altering Midtown tower proposal shows signs of life
61-story project by NYC's Rockefeller Group would be Atlanta's fifth tallest building

One of Atlanta’s more buzzed-about building proposals in the past decade’s growth cycle is showing signs of rumbling to life.

According to City of Atlanta Office of Buildings records, New York-based developer Rockefeller Group has begun the process of applying for building permits to erect the city’s tallest skyscraper since the 1990s at the southwest corner of West Peachtree and 12th streets.

Sources have also indicated Rockefeller Group is in the process this month of lining up contractors to build the 61-story tower at 1072 W. Peachtree Street NE—and that designs may have been tweaked since the project was last making headlines in the spring.

Amy Ankeles, Rockefeller Group’s vice president of marketing, tells Urbanize Atlanta the Manhattan firm continues “to advance our development plans for the project” and expects to “have more to share… in a few weeks,” according to a July 29 email.

Building permit records indicate documents pertaining to various aspects of the 1072 West Peachtree project, from the block's sewer capacity on up, were submitted to the city in July.


The 1072 West Peachtree building, as designed by architecture firms TVS Design and Brock Hudgins, would include 350 market-rate apartments and 212,000 square feet of offices.

At the base, roughly 6,600 square feet of retail is planned along West Peachtree Street. An eight-story parking deck with some 850 spaces would be fully screened with translucent glass, project leaders have said.

The project was last vetted by the Midtown Development Review Committee in December, when DRC members were pleased with updates from an earlier incarnation but recommended further design tweaks.

Early indications were that Rockefeller Group’s tower would climb more than 730 feet, making it Atlanta’s fifth tallest high-rise.

In terms of sheer stories, the building as proposed would tally the second-most in Atlanta, bested only by Westin Peachtree Plaza’s 73 stories.

Atlanta’s second tallest building, SunTrust/Truist Plaza, has 60 stories.

Rockefeller Group’s venture is one of three towers that entered (or re-entered) Midtown’s development pipeline late in 2021 within a few blocks of each other. The others are high-rise office proposals from Cousins Properties (887 West Peachtree Street) and Trammel Crow (80 Peachtree Place, called Stratus Midtown). Collectively, the three projects would bring 117 stories of vertical development.

Elsewhere in Midtown, 21 buildings of at least a dozen stories are under construction now, with seven more high-rises in planning stages, according to Midtown Alliance.

Construction fencing moves in for Atlanta's tallest building in ages
Rockefeller Group confirms construction activity at site of 1072 West Peachtree skyscraper

With each passing month, Atlanta’s tallest new development proposal in decades is looking like more and more of a sure bet.

Representatives with Manhattan-based Rockefeller Group confirmed to Urbanize Atlanta on Thursday that worker activity spotted around the site of a planned 60-story skyrise on West Peachtree Street is what it seems to be. Questions regarding a potential groundbreaking weren’t addressed.

“We can confirm that construction fencing is currently being installed around 1072 West Peachtree,” reps wrote in an email reply. “We look forward to sharing more updates soon."

It’s the most concrete evidence to date the mixed-use tower is officially moving forward—in a section of central Midtown near the Connector that’s currently mobbed with construction cranes and unrelated development activity.

Set on the southwest corner of West Peachtree and 12th streets, the Rockefeller project’s height would reshape Midtown’s skyline, especially when viewed from the west.
Last month, City of Atlanta Office of Buildings staff approved land development permits that allow Rockefeller to proceed with the redevelopment of a now-vacant U.S. Post Office facility at the corner of 12th Street.

That same week a promotional website for the skyscraper launched, lending a fresh perspective on how the project would fit among Midtown’s recent vertical growth. The website indicates the building will rise 60 stories (as opposed to 61 in initial plans), with designs of “monumental distinction” creating a place “that is as much active as it is restful, sophisticated as it is welcoming, and connected as it is set apart.”

The city has also granted Rockefeller permission to move forward with grading and installing new utilities, curb cuts, streetscape, and sidewalks at the 1.14-acre site where the high-rise is planned, according to permitting paperwork.

Finally! Midtown has been building up that dense canopy at around the 300ft level for the last 10 years or so, and it's high time we see some new peaks sprout through that canopy.

On one hand it's nice to see Atlanta getting back into the height game. On the other hand this design is embarrassingly bad and does not deserve to share the skyline with all the vastly superior towers constructed ~30-45 years ago. I'm glad this isn't being built in my city.

It would look a lot better if it was all slim. I don't like the heavy base to it.
