Olson Kundig has recently unveiled the design of 760 Ralph McGill Boulevard, a mixed-use high-rise that includes office space and street-level retail organized around a central public plaza.

The 1.1 million-sf project is under construction along Atlanta’s BeltLine on the site of a former Georgia Power operations center. The project is designed to create new urban connections between Old Fourth Ward Park and the Atlanta BeltLine corridor.

760 Ralph McGill Boulevard will be organized around two portals. The first portal frames views of downtown while the second portal connects to the historic Fourth Ward Park. The main plaza will connect to the planned light rail station on the BeltLine. The building will also incorporate a bike path that connects to the BeltLine Bicycle Trail and inner-city bike trails beyond.

The design team utilized extensive daylight and thermal modeling to create a custom facade that will enhance the building performance while maintaining access to natural daylight and thermal comfort for occupants. The building is targeting LEED Gold Certification.

In addition to Olson Kundig, HKS is the project’s executive architect and Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor.
