The Midtown Development Review Committee (DRC) received a proposal at its Aug. 9 meeting for the second phase of NCR’s new headquarters at Spring and 8th Streets in Midtown in Technology Square.
Cousins Properties presented plans for the second phase of the development, which would add another 240,500 square feet of office space, nearly 10,000 square feet of street level retail and parking spaces for approximately 515 cars. The first phase is already under construction.
The DRC had questions about the southern end of the building and the outdoor patio underneath the overhang of the parking garage. A lack of transparency and limited lighting makes this space unnecessarily dark, the committee said, and requested further exploration of the details in this area. The applicant was asked to resubmit updated elevations of the Spring Street façade to illustrate the steps taken to address those concerns.
NCR, which makes software and automated tellers, plans to bring more than 3,600 jobs to Midtown for its new headquarters.
