A rendering of 8th at West.

Cousins Properties presented plans for a 31-story office tower at the June 12 meeting of the Midtown Development Review Committee (DRC).

The tower, called 8th at West, would be located 901 West Peachtree Street between 7th and 8th Street.

Designed by Pickard Chilton and HKS, the project infills an 0.8 acre site near Tech Square and a three minute walk to the Midtown MARTA station.

The base of the building would have 6,000 square feet of retail space and a lobby lounge, while “a series of rooftop balconies with striking views of the skyline,” according to the DRC meeting recap from Midtown Alliance.

The committee voiced support for the project, with some questions still to be answered about egress, on-street parking and pedestrian access. The development team will address these questions and provide additional information about streetscape details in a follow-up submittal.
