The 19.6 million square foot Peachtree Center complex includes ten office buildings, three convention hotels, four trademart buildings, four parking garages, a retail mall, health club, and a MARTA transit station.
Covering 14 city blocks in downtown Atlanta, Peachtree Center is Atlanta’s largest mixed-use development. Portman Holdings worked with Prudential and Ehrenkranz Ehrenkranz & Schultz to finance this development, and build it in phases over fifty years. The complex has won numerous awards, including: a 1991 TOBY from BOMA for a Rehabilitated/Modernized Office Building; a 1988 Shaping of the City Award from the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau; and a 1986 Community Development Award from the Atlanta Business League.
It was featured in an exhibition selected by the United States Department of State to represent the US in the 2010 Biennale Architettura in Venice Italy—illustrating how development and design can cooperate to create a lasting, positive impact on the world’s urban environments.
