760 Ralph McGill Boulevard Celebrates Topping Out
On Friday, December 10, 760 Ralph McGill Boulevard celebrated its topping out, completing the structural frame of the new building. Members of Olson Kundig’s design team joined developer New City, general contractor Brasfield & Gorrie, executive architect HKS and additional project partners in a ceremony marking the occasion.
760 Ralph McGill Boulevard is a new 1.1 million-square-foot commercial high-rise building fronting the Atlanta BeltLine, combining 1 million square feet of office space with street-level retail. Organized around a central thoroughfare that doubles as public civic plaza space, the building will create new urban connections between Old Fourth Ward Park and the rapidly revitalizing Atlanta BeltLine corridor.
Targeting LEED® Gold certification, the building will include sustainable design features that reduce energy consumption, address stormwater runoff, and encourage alternate forms of transportation. Inside, high floor-to-floor heights along with optimized floorplates are designed to maximize spatial daylight autonomy. A custom façade system by Olson Kundig will enhance building performance while maintaining daylight and thermal comfort for occupants. The building is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2022.
