Gilbane Celebrates “Topping Out” at 1000 Park Avenue
The new residential high-rise is scheduled to open in May 2018.
Atlanta, Georgia – December 1 2017 – Gilbane celebrated a major milestone at the 1000 Park Avenue project in Atlanta, Georgia. The topping out ceremony was attended by representatives from the Wood Partners, Reese Vanderbilt & Associates, and Gilbane. The event took place on Level 2 of the parking garage with nearly 500 people in attendance who were treated to a barbeque lunch. Senior General Superintendent Dennis Evans addressed the attendees, presented several team members with Excellence Awards, and raffled off more than 175 prizes, including five TVs and an extra-large Big Green Egg.
The 27-story residential tower features a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units in the heart of Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. The tower houses 267 luxury units, a three-story parking deck and community amenities such as a private motor court for guest and resident access, private outdoor terrace and pool deck, fitness center, residential club and a residential Sky Lounge on the 27th floor with a covered outdoor terrace overlooking downtown Atlanta.
“This projects marks the third and final phase of a development Gilbane started more than 10 years ago with the construction of 700 Park Regency and 750 Park Avenue. I can’t say enough about our amazing team and the work they’ve done to bring this project to the topping out. And, of course, having a great client—Wood Partners—and their collaborative and authentic leadership has brought out the best in our team,” said Jeff George, vice president for the Southeast Division of Gilbane Building Company.
