Gilbane Building Company Begins Construction of the Luxury 1000 Park Avenue Project
Wood Partners High-rise Residential Towers Located in Atlanta Will Reach 27 Stories and Offer 267 Upscale Units
Atlanta, Georgia – September 2016 – This signature high-rise residential tower will be located in the heart of the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. Gilbane Building Company, a leader in construction services and multi-unit construction, is serving as the construction manager for Wood Partners, a progressive multifamily investment firm in Atlanta.
The 27-story luxury tower will offer 267 units of apartments and four stories of parking with podium-level parking deck and private garage options. The tower will offer a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The high-end, upscale finishes feature European-style cabinets with granite counters, undermount stainless steel sinks, plank flooring, modern lighting fixtures throughout, and ceramic tile tub surround. Community amenities include an elevated outdoor terrace and pool deck and a residential club and Sky Lounge on the 27th floor with a covered terrace, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
“We are truly excited to have the opportunity to work with Wood Partners on such a high profile project,” said Jim Pritchett, Senior Project Executive Gilbane Building Company. “It is especially significant to Gilbane since when we completed the adjacent residential tower in 1999, the expectation was we would build the next tower shortly thereafter. Little did we know it would take 17 years to begin construction.”
The project, designed by Reese Vanderbilt & Associates is anticipated to complete in May of 2018 and will be located adjacent to the Phipps Plaza. The structure is a post-tensioned frame and is neighbors with the Park Avenue and Park Regency Condominium projects Gilbane Building Company completed many years ago.
