Join AIA Atlanta for a tour of 675 N. Highland, owned by Abraham Properties. This tour will take place was originally scheduled for September 10, 2016. Gilbane Building Company, managed the construction of the much anticipated mixed-use development called 675 N Highland, which features:
•125 residential units
•12,500 of retail space
•7,500 of office space
•350+ space parking deck
Designed by Lord Aeck Sargent, 675 N. Highland is a mixed-use project catering to the Poncey-Highland neighborhood of Atlanta. Its design is highly driven by its context both in form and in function. The site is a true urban infill in that it is surrounded on three sides by lively, neighborhood scale streets. Each street offers a unique experience. North Highland is the main thoroughfare with bustling small-scale retail, while Blue Ridge holds mostly 3-story apartment buildings. Seminole is the most varied being a cross street with smaller commercial buildings to the north and single family homes to the south. The site’s challenge was hosting all 3 of these programmatic elements in one place, as well as, the parking to accommodate them. After several rounds of design, weighing the pros and cons of program placement on the site, the design settled on a logic that reinforces the friendlier, human scale of the neighborhood. N. Highland acts as the primary retail front with 2 retail anchor spaces at each end of the block.
