A high-rise building with green space spreading out in front of it

Olson Kundig recently shared the design of 760 Ralph McGill Boulevard,
a new mixed-use high-rise development currently under construction along Atlanta’s BeltLine. Led by developer New City, LLC, this new 1.1 million-square-foot project includes office space and street-level retail organized around a central public plaza. The project, which is located on the site of a former Georgia Power operations center, also includes HKS as executive architect and Brasfield & Gorrie as general contractor.

Integrated sustainable design features will reduce energy consumption, address stormwater runoff and encourage alternate forms of transportation. The design team utilized extensive daylight and thermal modeling to create a custom façade that will enhance building performance while maintaining access to natural daylight and thermal comfort for occupants. High floor-to-floor heights and optimized floorplates further maximize spatial daylight autonomy. The building is targeting LEED® Gold Certification.
