City of Atlanta Acquires $39 Million Office Tower for Housing Conversion

by Lynn Peisner

ATLANTA — The city of Atlanta has completed its $39 million purchase of 2 Peachtree Street, a 41-story office tower in downtown Atlanta that was built in 1966. The city’s economic development agency, Invest Atlanta, purchased the 1-million-square-foot building and will hold it until a redevelopment partner is selected. The acquisition was funded through allocations from the Eastside Tax Allocation District. Invest Atlanta will select a development partner, following a request-for-proposals process, by the end of 2023, with the goal of beginning construction in 2024. The number of units or rent restrictions were not released, but plans call for a mix of uses in addition to housing, including office and retail.
