One of Atlanta's most impressive towers is officially going.
Fortune Global 500 Thyssenkrupp company Elevator broke the ground this week at its new headquarters in North America the next door to Cobb County's diverse Battery, the town of Atlanta Braves stadium.
It will open in 2021, with a 420-foot lift tower on the headquarters complex which would be Cobb's highest building. In the context, Sandy Springs's “King and Queen” towers at the Concourse Corporate Center are about 100 feet higher, ranking them among the highest urban high charges in the nation.
According to officers at Collins Project Management based in Atlanta, who are in charge of the tower development, it is the largest “high profile” project in the country.
At the top of the vertical test facility, three floors will be reserved for special functions, providing panoramic views of the city, officials this week.
Outside the tower, the project will include a shorter, adjacent building for thyssenkrupp business and engineering applications.
The combined projects are estimated to cost $ 200 million. Officials have said that the complex could have around 900 full-time thyssenkrupp employees, which has greatly added Cobb tax breaks and other incentives.
As the development progresses, the most important is another fast-moving feather in the Cumberland area.
Nearby, Braves Development Company unveiled plans in August plans for Aloft's hotel at The Battery. Apartment complexes continue to grow high, approaching the vicinity of the stadium.
And a mile from the car park, the Platinum Tower office complex signed tenants – a testament, officials say, to the economic boom of the Cumberland area.
