The demolition phase of Phipps Plaza’s redevelopment project is now complete and the first phase of construction to reimagine the Buckhead mixed-used development is officially underway.
Anchored by the shopping mall, a fixture at Peachtree and Lenox roads for 50 years, additions will include Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, a 90,000 square-foot Life Time fitness club and a new office building.
The hotel will have 150 rooms, rooftop pool, spa and corporate conference space. The restaurant, which will feature Japanese cuisine, will operate in a 10,000 square foot space. The new 13-story 350,000 square foot Class A office building, One Phipps Plaza, will include a three-story parking garage. An outdoor greenspace will also be part of the redevelopment.
Using a construction crew of approximately 400 workers, the Beck Group is serving as architect and general contractor for the redevelopment, with a phased opening beginning in early 2021. The demolition phase included razing the former Belk building and removing a three-level parking deck.
