Not only are they some of the most recognized buildings in Atlanta, Corporate Center V and VI are two of the tallest office building in the city's suburbs, standing at 31 stories. Otherwise known as the King and Queen buildings, they tower above nearby business, retail, and residential areas of the prestigious surrounding Dunwoody area.
The overall scope of the project included construction of: Concourse V - 750,000 sq. ft., 31 floors; Concourse VI - 775,000 sq. ft., 33 floors; the Westin Hotel - 300,000 sq. ft., 20 floors, 370 rooms with three restaurants, meeting rooms, ballrooms, an entertainment lounge and a health club with a sauna and steamroom; and a 652,000-sq.-ft. parking deck.
The lobby areas of Corporate Center V are enclosed by a 20-foot high total vision structural glass system. The building itself is crowned with a unique architectural concrete signature dome. Rising eight stories above the roof, the dome is composed of four interlocking, gleaming white concrete arches topped by a 41 foot aluminum spire. The 227,000-pound rooftop sculptures were highlighted in an Engineering News-Record article depicting unique approaches to complex construction elements.
