Perkins + Will
For 60 years, the old Atlanta Dairies cooperative, with its familiar milk carton sign and Streamline Moderne façade, was a hub of commercial activity near downtown Atlanta. The client’s vision for the 10-acre property is to create a new cultural and entertainment destination to the area, while preserving the best qualities of site’s industrial character. Original elements such as catwalks, loading docks, concrete structures, and the iconic milk carton sign will be carefully restored and integrated into the new development.
Peachtree Center Plaza and Retail Center
The Beck Group
Designed and developed by the internationally renowned John Portman & Associates, Peachtree Center was an innovative pioneer of urban-core revitalization concepts explored in the late 1960s and 1970s. The Peachtree Center Plaza is the primary unifying exterior space situated between the four towers that delineate the Center, and links the interior of the complex to Peachtree Street. A complete renovation and redesign of the Plaza, the below ground Peachtree Retail Center, and large glass Atrium at the heart of the project, has been designed by Beck Architecture and will be built by Beck Construction. This project endeavors to enhance the role that Peachtree Center plays as a vital participant in the excitement and revitalization of Atlanta’s downtown core. The project has been reviewed and approved by Central Atlanta Progress and construction is targeted to begin in the second quarter of 2017.
