Perkins+Will has released plans for 98 Fourteenth Street, a 920 foot (280 meter) tall residential and commercial tower that, when complete, will become Atlanta’s second tallest building behind Pritzker Prize winning architect Kevin Roche’s Bank of America Plaza. The new tower is an integral piece of a planned development called the Midtown Art Walk, a half-mile pedestrian landscape featuring innovative architecture and interactive art elements between 2 transit stations in the district. The 74-story building will contain 382 luxury residential units and 180 corporate suites, as well as retail space on the ground level.
The tower’s four elevations will be made of curtain wall glass surfaces pushed to different vertical planes to create the overall composition of the building. A full story sky lounge indicates the change in program on the facade, and will provide dramatic views of the Atlanta skyline.
The building will offer a range of residences varying in size and floor plan options and additional amenities including a heated, infinity edge-pool; conference and media rooms; a fitness center and yoga studio; a children’s play area; bike storage; temperature-controlled storage for food deliveries; a private dining room; and a top-of-the-line kitchen and bar.
Retail will be located in the tower’s base, comprising 135,000 square feet (12,540 square meters), alongside 11 levels of enclosed parking. The building’s second level will extend to connect to Peachtree Street and 15th street, helping to improve pedestrian circulation within the block and to adjacent and future developments.
98 Fourteenth Street will begin construction this fall and is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
