Portman Holdings Announces 3rd Tower in Midtown Atlanta


Portman Holdings announces the development of a third office tower in Midtown Atlanta at 712 West Peachtree Street. The 310,000-square-foot, 20-story state-of-the-art office development in Atlanta’s Technology Square is adjacent to Anthem Technology Center, currently under construction at 740 West Peachtree, which is slated to open in 2020. 712 West Peachtree is 85% leased. Groundbreaking for 712 West Peachtree is slated for May, and construction is expected to take 24 months to complete.

Portman Holdings has partnered with SunTrust Banks and USAA for the construction financing.
Located near Portman’s recently opened Coda Tech Square, 712 West Peachtree will be situated in a highly-concentrated Technology Square that has become known as an innovation hotbed; with major corporate presence, research facilities, incubators, technology start-ups and the Georgia Institute of Technology campus.

“We are pleased to commence the construction of a third office tower on West Peachtree, adjacent to the Anthem Technology Center and Coda Tech Square. 712 West Peachtree continues a legacy of creating vibrant and innovative workspaces and our continued investment in Midtown Atlanta,” said Ambrish Baisiwala, Chief Executive Officer of Portman Holdings. John Portman & Associates designed the building.

The building will share a city block, integrated lobby space, and 8th floor exterior terrace with Anthem Technology Center at 740 West Peachtree. 712 West Peachtree will offer stunning views of Midtown and Downtown Atlanta from its 13 office floors situated above an 8-story parking deck. The building will contain over 8,000 sf of retail space. The vertical integration of programmatic elements allows the building to maximize a compact site area within the urban context. The location is the most transit-friendly in Midtown, offering a high-walkability score, access to the North Avenue MARTA, and on-site bicycle parking.
