John Portman & Associates projects mentioned in two wins for 2017 Atlanta Real Estate Awards
At a gala for the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2017 Best of Atlanta Real Estate awards last Thursday evening, two John Portman & Associates projects were mentioned within the wins.
From the article, Best in Atlanta Real Estate Visionary Award: Tech Square fosters innovation, entrepreneurship: The success of Georgia Tech’s vision for Technology Square, carried out over nearly two decades, is this year’s recipient of the Visionary Award in Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2017 Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards.
Coda, the 770,000-square-foot next phase of Tech Square, is already underway. It will give the area one of the few features it’s lacked — a central gathering spot for its thousands of students, faculty and professionals.
John Portman & Associates and Thomas Balsley Associates, a New York City-based design firm known for urban landscape architecture, are designing Coda and its public spaces. The $375 million development is expected to be complete in 2019.
From the article, Best in Atlanta Real Estate: Airport kicks off 1st phase of mixed-use project: The kickoff of the first phase of a major mixed-use development at Atlanta’s most important economic engine is this year’s Mixed-Use Deal of the Year in Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2017 Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards.
Phase I of the development will consist of an 11-story, 440-room, four-star InterContinental Hotel, to be designed by John Portman & Associates; 80,000 square feet of conference/meeting space; and an additional 60,000 square feet of class A office space.
