A proposed 74-story residential building in Midtown would become Atlanta’s second tallest building behind Bank of America Tower if approved by the city.

Olympia Heights Management and Perkins + Will presented plans for 98 Fourteenth Street during the July 12 Midtown Development Review Committee (DRC) meeting.

The first phase of the development would feature the main tower comprised of 382 luxury residential units, 180 corporate suites, 60,370-square-feet of retail, and 825 structured parking spaces. A second, smaller tower in the future would contain a hotel.

According to a recap from the meeting at the MidtownAtl blog, the project was well-received by the DRC who acknowledged its clean, modern lines, elegant proportions and timeless design. Comments from the committee focused on concerns such as the provision of ample stacking space for vehicles to facilitate efficient valet operations. The committee also encouraged the development team to seek out destination-oriented restaurants to capitalize on the premium location and potential for unique outdoor dining with a rooftop garden directly accessed from Peachtree Street.
