Atlanta, Georgia – July 2015 – Gilbane Building Company, a global leader in construction services, has been selected by Abraham Properties to manage the construction of the much anticipated mixed-use development called 675 N Highland which is located in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood. The project will include street-level retail and office space, residential units, and a parking garage.

The new concrete parking structure will have approximately 385 spaces.
