Dewberry Group and Smallwood last week presented revised plans to the Midtown Development Review Committee (DRC) for an expansion of the 21-story Campanile building that has been underway since 2019.
Post renovations, Campanile’s façade will offer a “sleeker profile” and will boast expanded square footage with a new six-story, 125,000-square-foot office and retail podium around the base of the tower.
In the podium, new floors will align with the existing floors of the office tower to create office floor plates of approximately 45,000 square feet, and new terraces on levels four and six will provide “sweeping views and outdoor amenity spaces for office tenants.”
Ground floor spaces are intended for retail tenants that will “activate the street and add vitality to the neighborhood.”
“[DRC] was unanimous in its support for the striking update to the building which will be clad in white marble and charcoal-gray curtain wall with ultra-clear glass,” according to a Midtown Alliance recap report of last week’s presentation.
The DRC recommended that developers revise plans for 13th Street “to provide on-street parking and a wider sidewalk that more closely meets Midtown’s streetscape standards,” and is requesting more info on the public space in front of the main entrance and streetscape details and expects Dewberry to return when plans are further developed for the public space.
Originally built in 1987 as the headquarters for BellSouth, the office tower, at 1155 Peachtree St. NE, anchors a prominent corner on Peachtree Street, and was acquired by Dewberry in 2010.
The DRC first heard the plans in 2018, and Dewberry unveiled its intentions in 2016.
