Gamma Real Estate Thursday announced a $4 million renovation to one of Downtown Atlanta’s office buildings, The Hurt Building.

Renovations will add an amenity floor to the building’s penthouse and revitalize the lobby’s original marble details while introducing a modern touch to the century-old property, according to a press release.

Atlanta-based architects Plexus Research + Design is behind the renovation plans.

JLL oversees both leasing and property management for the project.

“We look forward to restoring the beautiful architecture and historic elements in The Hurt Building while creating a contemporary, energetic environment for tenants,” N. Richard Kalikow, Chairman, and CEO of Gamma Real Estate said in the release.

“JLL has strong experience in representing historic properties. We are excited to have partnered with a team that shares our vision.”

Designed in 1913 by architect Joel Hurt, the Hurt Building is one of Atlanta’s earliest skyscrapers.

The landmark building has been listed on the National Park Service’s registry of historic places since 1977.

Located at 50 Hurt Plaza, the 18-story building is known for its unique triangular shape. The Hurt Building is also a LEED Platinum building.

Gamma Real Estate purchased the project last year with a goal of updating and renovating the historic structure as part of the neighborhood’s revitalization, spurred by large mixed-use projects nearby including the Centennial Park expansion and the redevelopment of Underground Atlanta.

Renovations are expected to complete by first quarter 2018.

In addition to a new Starbucks and Relay bike share station, Gamma is pursuing additional retail options to activate the building’s main level.
