Before moving to Atlanta this was one of the more interesting developments promising to bring even more vibrancy to downtown that I was looking forward to:

Home Page | Times Square South - 285 Marietta St


However I haven't heard any updates on this lately? Anyone know what the status of this project is?

No offense, but I hope this isn't built. I thought the whole concept was a bit gauche.

More residential is perfect for downtown and the Centennial Park area to park it feel more inviting at all hours.

I have no beef with everything but the name. Hopefully they just used that as a concept and plantpo come up with something ORIGINAL if it actually comes to fruition.

This is infinitely more attractive and welcoming than what's there now, but it isn't residential. From the project Fact Sheet:

Mixed-use, $150 million project composed of:
- 350,000 sf Class A office
- 60,000 sf of retail and destination attraction space
- Adjacent 321 room Embassy Suites hotel - 77 room addition planned bringing total room count to 398.
- 16,500 SF existing meeting space will be supplemented by an additional 6,000 SF.

I was adding that residential needs to be part of the project. There is plenty of unused office space in downtown.

I second this. Downtown is lacking in residential communities, but honestly we could probably do the same thing by propping up a couple Publix or Kroger stores in the right areas. Interesting idea though.

I hate that name. And before someone comes in here and say that Atlanta is trying to be like NYC were aren't. We have no control over what a developer develops. If I open a Waffle House in NYC NYC is not trying to be like Atlanta

I agree that downtown needs more residential and dining.

The last thing we need downtown is another building that is deserted after 6pm when everyone has gone home and contributes nothing on weekends.
