3344 Peachtree is a 50-story, mixed-use tower which includes 469,921 sq. ft. of Class A office and retail space, 82 condominium units, and an 11-story, 1,631-space parking structure. The vertical mixed-use building, featuring a spiraling architectural style topping 635 feet, is conveniently located in the Buckhead Community of Atlanta, GA on a 2 acre site. This high-profile project creates a unique landmark in Buckhead with its all glass curtainwall designed as a piece of art or sculpture.
The residential component, called SOVEREIGN, sits “above all” atop the office and retail levels, occupying levels 28 to 50. With only 82 homes, all residences feature panoramic window walls ensuring spectacular penthouse type views; ceiling heights ranging from 10 to 16 feet; and spacious two- and three-bedroom homes with architectural designer finishes, such as hardwood and stone flooring, custom cabinetry, stone countertops, stone bubble message tubs with stone surrounds and stone clad showers with frameless glass surrounds. Stacking the residential and office components gives the building a unique feel with even the first floor of private dwellings sitting 350 feet in the air and providing unmatched views of the surrounding countryside. Two stories of amenities for residents, including a fitness center, separate the office floors from the condos.
The prestigious Buckhead Club relocated its club to the top office floor of the building, Level 26. The 28th story Sky Terrace boasts the city’s highest elevated outdoor heated swimming pool. The Sky Terrace is beautifully landscaped with stone clad planters, stone and tile decks, BBQ grills, an outdoor fireplace, and a whirlpool spa.
The most significant and unique challenge of this project was due to the varying floor plate sizes. There are no floor plates that are the same. The edge of slab moves on each floor, and the entire column layout changed on the 27th floor to accommodate the residential floor plate layout. There was a unique and powerful collaborative effort between designers, contractors, and vendors sharing common resources with a measure of trust to achieve the final common goal of the design look desired by the owner.
